How to Add Web Services to InduSoft Web Studio SCADA/HMI Applications

Several systems provide information through Web Services. In other words, Web Services can provide information (usually through files/streams in the XML or JSON format) based on a request using the HTTP protocol. This tutorial will help you add these services to InduSoft Web Studio HMI/SCADA projecrs, and uses the example of a weather information service. Weather information may be useful in applications such as wind and solar energy applications, energy metering, building management, or similar applications. Continue reading

In many of these applications, temperature control and reports are required for auditing and recall purposes. Continue reading

Destroying Industrial Equipment with Bubbles and Malicious Code

It’s not yet common to see malicious attacks designed with the intent of destroying industrial equipment, but the proof-of-concept experiments on the vulnerability of industrial control systems only grows more compelling with each example of equipment-destroying malware. The best and most well-known example was Stuxnet, but hackers at the recent Black Hat Security concept showed even more evidence that such attacks can pinpoint weaknesses in nearly any physical system.
