Another useful Ethernet application with our new HMI´s is the multi-drop connection.

As you can see in the picture configuration, Multi-drop means have 2 mirror HMI´s where can be used and all the actions in one HMI, will be mirrored on the other one.
To do this, we need as always one master and one slave, or with the proper words, one Host and one Client.

Where our customers use Multidrop? The typical applicaion use to be a huge machine with several control points, printing machine, Parking, etc…
