The TwinCAT HMI server is a web server that was developed in-house by Beckhoff. It is platform-independent and not based on any web server functionalities of the operating system. The TwinCAT HMI server has a modular structure. Via server extensions it can provide additional functionalities such as a reporting system or other protocols. This enables customers to develop their own server extensions, so that their business logic can be provided centrally.
The TwinCAT HMI server supports the TwinCAT ADS protocol and can therefore communicate with all TwinCAT devices. Third-party systems can be connected via OPC UA extensions.
