Want to Add Instant Value to Your SCADA/HMI Solution? Add Mobile Support!

In the competitive world of systems integration and machine building, it’s important to have an added value or service that puts you ahead of the competition. Even if all things are equal, a feature with tangible value can really help you sell your solution over that of a competitor. One popular way we’ve seen InduSoft Web Studio users up their game is to offer a fully integrated mobile solution on a smartphone or tablet device that allows machine operators to view and (optionally) interact with their mobile HMI away from the machine, or allows floor managers access to critical process data from an office, or even from home.

Test Drive InduSoft on the Cloud!

InduSoft has been testing new features that will allow customers to have a full SCADA solution on the cloud, regardless of the type of device they use, including iPad, Android tablets, or Windows devices. We have configured a virtual machine on the cloud to run the PCDemo application. We configured a second virtual machine on the cloud to run “Secure Viewer Thin Client” (connected to the server) and to support multiple remote desktop connections (windows terminal services). Using this solution, you can launch independent instances of the Secure Viewer Thin Client from any device that provides a remote desktop application, such as the iPad or an Android OS device.

Using a Modem and TCP/IP Encapsulation with InduSoft Web Studio Drivers

As we discussed recently, the InduSoft Web Studio SCADA software is capable of encapsulating protocols within different physical layers in order to send information from the computer in which the SCADA software is installed and the PLC or RTU connected to the machine. These physical layers may be Ethernet, Serial RS-232, RS-485, or even Bluetooth or modem connections when a converter is used. In some cases, a modem is the most efficient type of physical layer through which to transmit protocols. By using the drivers available in InduSoft Web Studio, it is possible to connect the SCADA application to the modem through the driver, and then send data anywhere across phone lines. Continue reading
