Oct. 13, 2010
Indusoft Web Studio v7.0 features an innovative new user interface, additional functionality and capabilities, and improved graphic tools for creating HMI and SCADA applications for industrial automation projects. New additions to the software include improvements to the Rapid Application Configuration Environment (RACE), an interface that was specifically designed to create an easy to use SCADA application development environment. Additional graphic enhancements include new customizable color palettes and color and pattern fill options for trends. A new graphic feature supports dynamic rotation of bitmap images to create lifelike animated displays. SCADA security has not been overlooked in the newest version of InduSoft Web Studio. The robust native security supports Microsoft Active Directory using standard LDAP protocol and offers security synchronization between multiple IWS workstations. In addition, intellectual property protection has been added so that machine builders and integrators can protect their corporate custom functionality. InduSoft Web Studio v7.0 supports OPC UA and OPC Xi, in addition to bundling in nearly 250 drivers that communicate with PLCs and controllers from all major manufacturers. Functionality that has existed in the software for years is all included. Online and historical alarms and trending; recipes, reports and advanced features like patented SQL database connectivity, web publishing, e-mail and PDF publishing are all built in. A powerful new one-click multi language translation feature allows users to read their application in their native language. InduSoft Web Studio is available with many new tag counts. This allows users to take advantage of the scalability of this SCADA software. Those using Windows Embedded, or Windows CE can develop their application on any supported Microsoft operating system, and deploy it anywhere, while users on Windows 7, or Windows Server editions can use InduSoft to develop complex SCADA projects to run on desktops or servers.
