One or several virtual graphic adapters are used to extend the host PC desktop. The program windows of the application software can be moved to additional monitors covered by the extended desktop. Applications may be started on a specific monitor. The desktop can be extended to up to 9 monitors. CP‑Link 3 can transfer the data via Ethernet to several client Panel PCs. In addition, freely definable image details can be transferred from the host screen to client Panel PCs.
The mouse and keyboard entries of individual clients can be locked via TwinCAT PLC or a software interface (API), in order to prevent interference between several users.
