What is webaccess software l.jpg
What Is WebAccess Software?

  • Web Browser-based

  • HMI and SCADA software

  • For industrial control systems

  • And facilities automation.

HMI Human Machine Interface

SCADA Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition

Industry applications l.jpg
Industry Applications

  • What makes webaccess unique6 l.jpg
    What makes WebAccess unique?

    • Ordinary Web Server

      • Microsoft IIS

        • standard option in Windows NT, 2000, and XP.

    • Redundant SCADA node

      • standard feature.

    • Redundant Communication Ports

      • Standard feature, If device driver protocol support this.

    • A “true” Thin Client

      • Any web browser including Windows CE pocket PCs, PDA and handhelds.

    • Designed for the Web

      • No legacy software.

      • 2002 technology.

    Traditional hmi and scada l.jpg
    Traditional HMI and SCADA

    • Traditional not designed for the Web

      • Limited or no remote database configuration

      • Limited or no graphics building via web browser.

      • limited function Web Client.

      • 1980’s technology.

      • locked into legacy software.

      • Web is a “patch” onto system.

      • Proprietary.

      • Software versions requires cataloging, tracking and “repurchase” of engineering tool(s).

    • Example:

      • Intellution/Emerson, Wonderware/Foxboro, Johnson, Indusoft, Citec, Iconics….
