traditional hmi and scada
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….
