Please note that the host PC requirements are directly tied to the complexity of
your PMCS system. The minimum requirements will suffice for a simple PMCS
system. However, as the number and complexity of your power management
device grows, and you add more complex software requirements such as custom
interfaces designed with third-party HMI tools, your PC requirements increase
as well. A faster processor and more memory provide better performance for
your PMCS system.
