Displays and operating terminals
A low priced display which shows all data and messages in text form is mostly adequate for simple processes. For more complicated transactions, it is advisable to use a terminal that can also display pictures and graphics of the plant situation via pictograms and symbols and hence makes the handling much easier. Even advanced functions like displaying trends, archiving of data, visualization with color changes or implementing of own programs is possible.
If any other functions are requested, a PC-based solution, which is user friendly due to its familiar handling, is necessary. The visualization system runs on an industrial PC in many cases. This PC is designed for continuous duty. In other cases, the solution is based upon a client-server system technology.
Connection to any number of control systems
All visualization solutions are connected to the control system(s), so that the necessary data can be exchanged. This coupling results either from implemented driver(s) or from the open OPC-interface. In most cases, an OPC-server is required for this. The server is regularly offered by the manufacturer of the control system and with it, any number of control systems or external devices can be connected to the visualization. Limitations can only occur regarding the quantity of exchanged data pointes defined in the license.
A well-proven system
We have been using GE Fanuc's visualization system Proficy HMI/Scada – Cimplicity as a solution provider successfully for many years. Various projects, in which we coupled this system to Siemens-, ABB-, Rockwell- and Schneider-controls and different data bases, prove that. We have designed our own tools and objects in cooperation with the manufacturer, for the purpose of providing our customers with matured systems.
On the other hand, other products of considerable manufacturers like Siemens' WinCC or ETM's PVSS are fully supported by us.
We respond to our customer's requests
If you need a handling via touchscreens, display of different pictures on multiple screens, a dynamic language shifting, a recipe management or integration of further programs, we can support you. We have even realized a number of data base connections (Oracle, Microsoft SQL, etc.) to different SQL-data bases.
