    Software Overview

    About Vijeo Designer BasicVijeo Designer Basic is a software application with which you can create operator panels and configure operating parameters for the HMIGXU series of target machines. It provides all the tools needed to design an HMI project, from the data acquisition to the creation and display of animated drawings.

    Minimum System Requirements

    FeaturesData reuseVijeo Designer Basic uses two types of data:

    internal data created in the user application data provided by external devices such as PLCs and remote I/O modules

    Graphical objects, scripts, and panels created with Vijeo Designer Basic can be saved in the Toolchest so that they can be reused in other projects. The ability to reuse this data can help you optimize the development of new applications and standardize screens in applications that are co-developed.

    Multi-PLC connectivityWith Vijeo Designer Basic, you can configure your HMI panel to simultaneously communicate with several different Schneider Electric and third-party devices.

    HMI screen creationVijeo Designer Basic enables you to create dynamic screens for the HMI panel. It combines various functions such as moving objects, zooms, level indicators, on/off indicators, and switches in a simple application. Animated symbols can be used to build and edit a graphical screen very simply.
