  1. WebAccessHMI & SCADA softwareProduct Overview

  2. 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

  3. Industry Applications • Facilities Automation • Energy & Power • Petroleum & Chemicals • Semiconductor • Transportation • Water & Wastewater HMI Human Machine Interface SCADA Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition

  4. Web Browser HMI & SCADA • View and control • Automation equipment. • via PLCs, Controllers, IO • In real-time • Using an ordinary web browser • Internet explorer 5.5 or 6.0 • Unofficially, Netscape navigator 6.1 • Animated graphics • Rotate, color change, motion across screen • Trends & data logging • Alarms, recipes, scheduler & more…

  5. What makes WebAccess unique? • Web browser based Engineering! • Build Graphics (DRAW). • Configure Tags, Alarms, Recipes, Schedules and databases. • Download, Start and Stop Nodes. • Using Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0 • Unofficially – Netscape Navigator 6.1 • Remotely support customers • Reduce trips to field. • Faster customer response. • Reduce startup and down time. • Engineering Tool is independent of software version installed at customers’ site. • Engineers & technicians always have the right version of software needed.

  6. 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.

  7. 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….

  8. Review What makes WebAccess unique? • Ordinary Web Browser to View and Control with full animation. • Ordinary Web Server. • A “true” Thin Client. • Redundant SCADA node. • Redundant Communication Ports. • Designed for the Web. • Web browser based Engineering! • Remotely support customers. • Engineering Tool is independent of software version installed at customers’ site. • Engineers & technicians always have the right version of software needed.
