 Password:

1.If the HMI is not bound, this access password will be updated and downloaded into the HMI screen simultaneously.

2.If the HMI is bound, this access password in the project cannot effectively change the binding password of the device, and it can only be changed through V-NET.

3) Upload Selection:  

To upload the data collected by HMI to the cloud or a 3rd-party server, you can only choose one from two upload methods.

to Cloud: All configured collection points(tags), Data records, and Alarm records will be pushed to V-NET.

to User MQTT: All configured collection points(tags), Data records, and Alarm records will be pushed to the 3rd-party server, and the relevant Lua function calls please refer to the Cloud interface.

After the "to User MQTT" is checked. The collection points, data records, and alarms cannot be viewed on V-NET, but the device can be bound to V-NET and remote monitoring the device screen normally.

4) Low Data Mode setting

1.When you check the "‘Low Data Mod’ by default on new tags", the newly added collection points will be enabled in the Low Data Mode by default.

2.The longer the refresh interval, the slower the data upload, and the more traffic data will be saved. This function is only used for the control of tags.
