ICONICS provides a specially designed SCADA version for mobile devices. How accepted is the system currently in practice - if so?
recently went through an upgrade process to align the product with our GENESIS64™
Product Suites. Its initial release included Microsoft Silverlight™
functionality for Windows Phone 7
Devices. By the end of 2012 ICONICS plans to support iOS, Android and Windows® devices
through our “Any Glass” strategy of allowing configuration of HMI displays and AnalytiX data for viewing anywhere, at any time. The software can be purchased as an extension to the GENESIS64 Product Suite or as a stand-alone product, offering phone-based HMI screens, asset management and alarming. The product has the ability to view fully functional GENESIS64 HMI displays and AnalytiX assets; MobileHMI is a full client for your application.
In which specific requirements have mobile SCADA systems the most benefits?
was designed to be applicable to any industry that has dispersed assets or personnel. The MobileHMI application was built to cater to a mobile workforce with three common user scenarios in mind. The first scenario helps employees from any industry access GENESIS64 HMI screens with only a few touches. Managers can quickly access the AnalytiX Asset Catalog to view a hierarchical list of assets for quick drill down capability to the equipment needed. Operators and Maintenance Personnel can enable Push Notifications from the phone to alert them if any alarms come in, allowing staff to react quickly and effectively to any issues.
How have you implemented the mobile version technically, i.e. for example, fits standard browser technology with regard to safety and functionality?
currently runs in the mobile deployment of Silverlight. It is a native application on Windows Phone 7
devices downloaded from the Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace. Silverlight’s thin client solution restricts access to device files, making it a thin, secure deployment of data. The application itself will not run in the browser on the phone, but run as a Silverlight application that connects back to a MobileHMI server for data and visualization.
