About WebIQ

“WebIQ Creates Web HMIs in A Smarter Way”

WebIQ is a visualization software for industrial web HMIs and a standard feature of ctrlX CORE. WebIQ combines the established functionality of a complete HMI/SCADA system with the power of web technology. With WebIQ you can create outstanding web-based HMIs: from simple process control with a few controls to sophisticated visualization for production machines and plants.

The visualization software consists of two components (apps):

  • WebIQ Server: The runtime app for web HMIs, which is installed directly on the ctrlX CORE controller.
  • WebIQ Designer: The intuitive engineering app for developing web HMIs without programming expertise.



Toolbox for Outstanding HMI Design
Create web HMIs with WebIQ, which differentiate you through good design in crowded markets.

Key to The World of Web HMIs
Start with WebIQ without programming expertise: configure your Web HMI instead of programming.

Your Anytime-and-Everywhere HMI
Create a single web HMI for different display sizes and mobile devices using responsive design with WebIQ.

Standards for Sustainable HMI Development
No dependencies: WebIQ relies 100% on standard web technologies and uses OPC UA by default.

HMI Development Without Limits
Customize your Web HMI with WebIQ: Build your own widgets and themes or integrate widgets from other well-established frameworks and libraries.

Created for the Digital Transformation
100% offline-capable (Edge-based: HMI server doesn’t run in the cloud, but on your machine) + server-side API, which enables data access by any system (real-time data hub).
