GE Intelligent Platforms has introduced mobile extensions to its Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX and Cimplicity visualization applications to the Apple iPad. The iPad ProficySCADA app extends the control room providing users with information anywhere, increasing visibility and efficiency of operations.

The iPad app enables users of either iFIX WebSpace or Cimplicity GlobalView to instantly connect to its HMI/SCADA runtime projects. It supports the same full featured capabilities of a standard client by delivering full HMI/SCADA functionality including third-party application support with no screen conversions required.

The ProficySCADA app allows users to limit functions via standard runtime project security features as required by a user or group. It incorporates popular iPad specific user interface functionality such as intuitive multi-touch gestures to achieve mouse and keyboard operation.
