Creating Key Indicators for Multiple Applications in InduSoft Web Studio

scada softwareIn some industries, it’s not uncommon to have several different SCADA applications running simultaneously on different licenses of the SCADA software. While extrapolating data from each of these individually is no problem, it can be an additional challenge to compile data from all the applications into one source. Here are some options for compiling key indicators from multiple applications into one easily viewable format.

Option 1: Use the native TCP/IP Server module from the existing InduSoft Web Studio stations to consolidate the Key Performance Indicators in one of the stations via TCP/IP client worksheets configured in this station. Then, connect a Web Thin Client to the client station and display information which was originated from all HMIs. In this case, you do not need an additional license.

Option2: It’s also possible to set up each SCADA application as a TCP/IP Server. From there, configure a TCP/IP client sheet in each application to read the data from the other applications.

Option3: There is an easy option for this if your information already flows into a central database. Simply ensure that every application is sending the information to the database, then configure a screen in each application that will display the data from the database.

Option 4: Install InduSoft Web Studio in a new computer and use the native TCP/IP Server module from the existing InduSoft Web Studio stations to consolidate the Key Performance Indicators in this new station via TCP/IP Client worksheets configured in this station. Then, connect a Web Thin Client to the new station and display information which was originated from all HMIs. In this case, you need an additional license for the new Server station.
