Belden introduces HiView – the new way to interface with Hirschmann™ products

High availability for the graphical user interface and the network

The new HiView gives you direct access to the graphical user interface of managed switches in our Hirschmann™ product range – a feature that is unique in automation. This tool, which supports a variety of Windows and Linux operating systems, also serves as a client for our network management software, Industrial HiVision. HiView contains a built-in Java runtime library. This means you can dispense with Java libraries on your computer, which will increase the availability of both the user interface and the network.


HiView, which can be downloaded free of charge from and which will also be included on our product CDs from April 2013, is intuitive to use. It therefore requires no special IT know-how. HiView does not require any installation, does not alter any PC registry entries, and only writes information into its own folder. It even works directly from removable media such as USB drives and SD cards, for ultimate portability.

HiView displays a selection screen showing all the switches you have recently accessed, sorted by the frequency of accesses. Just click on any switch to open its graphical user interface. For added security, it is simple and convenient to view the security certificates of both the products and the Java library. Last but not least, thanks to the gradual transition from HTTP to HTTPS, you can always be sure that HiView is automatically using the most secure transmission protocol.
