HMI, PLC, Industrial automation compatibility
I am new to Mango however I am very impressed by its ease of design, usability, & design ability (from what I see in the tutorials). However I am looking to use this software for machine control. Can someone tell me if they have ever used this system with standard industrial automation hardware (HMI's, PLC's) from some of the majors such as Siemens, Allen Bradley, Beckhoff, B&R. I need to know first if it is possible and second how to go about it.

Mango is most commonly used as you discribe connect to PLC's and controllers. Mango can produce a browser based HMI for you or Mango can also be a Modbus TCP slave to another HMI.
To connect Mango to a PLC it just needs to support one of the protocols Mango includes. Modbus would be the most common but there is also an Allen Bradley Ethernet IP and PPPC driver.
