SCADA And HMI Software Update Incorporates New Graphic Enhancements
InduSoft released the newest version of the InduSoft Web Studio HMI/ SCADA software. This SCADA and HMI software package incorporates many additions to overall functionality, such as an improved user interface.
New additions to the software include improvements to the Rapid Application Configuration Environment (RACE), an interface that was designed to create an easy-to-use SCADA application development environment. Additional graphic enhancements include new customizable color palettes and color and pattern fill options for trends. A highly anticipated new graphic feature supports dynamic rotation of bitmap images to create lifelike animated displays.
SCADA security has not been overlooked in the newest version of InduSoft Web Studio. The robust native security supports Microsoft Active Directory using standard LDAP protocol, and offers security synchronization between multiple IWS workstations. In addition, intellectual property protection has been added so that machine builders and integrators can protect their corporate custom functionality.
InduSoft Web Studio v7.0 supports OPC UA and OPC Xi, in addition to bundling in nearly 250 drivers that communicate with PLCs and controllers from all major manufacturers. Functionality that has existed in the software for years is all included. Online and historical alarms and trending; recipes, reports and advanced features such as SQL database connectivity; web publishing; e-mail; and PDF publishing are all built in. A powerful new one-click multi language translation feature allows users to read their application in their native language. Clicking "automatic translation" allows the software package to communicate with Google Translate and bring back a translation. Words and phrases can be fine-tuned to allow users to ensure the accuracy of translations.
