Much more than a simple static web server, the Mako Server bundles all of the components and tools needed to easily and efficiently build fast, graphically rich and dynamic web applications for embedded devices. All the required functionality is built in, so there is no need for the traditional enterprise plug-in based application server framework, which requires massive amounts of resources.
Providing everything that is required to produce sophisticated web applications in a single, complete package, Mako server promises to save time, cost and effort. Applications are developed using Lua scripting language which is very easy to learn. Embedding Mako server into theC Controller means all communications to and from the PLC and the connected equipment are pre-configured, so there is no need to write any communications protocols.
