VTScada v11.2 is an all-in-one HMI/SCADA software is designed for complex multi-million tag enterprise systems. It scales effortlessly from tiny applications, yet is instantly intuitive and looks great.
Instantly intuitive: VTScada removes frustration from every stage of the HMI / SCADA lifecycle; from pricing, to development, operations, support, and upgrades.
Integrated design: VTScada includes components not commonly found in a single install, such as drivers, alarm management, historians, trends, reporting, version control, and email/SMS/voice alarm notifications.
State-of-the-art alarms management: Version 11.2 includes new and augmented tools to help smoothly enact the best practices of the ISA 18.2 standards. Alarm Shelving allows operators to temporarily silence and hide unhelpful alarms. New reports allow users to identify chronic "bad actor" alarms and alarm floods. Support for multiple alarm databases provide partitioning of subsystems while offering combined overviews.
Enhanced situational awareness: Instantly identify the status and priority of alarms using text, symbols, color, and sound. See an overview of each alarm's configuration, history, and operator notes.
New 'anywhere' thin client: A consistent operator interface on any HTML5 device. No installs or security vulnerabilities associated with Java-base clients.
Unique redundancy: Instantly configure automatic failover for multiple distributed servers, Thin Clients, networks, and communication links. There's no IO bandwidth load imposed by backup servers.
Built-in version control: VTScada's unique distributed version control has no single point of failure and automatically records all configuration changes allowing users to instantly roll back anything—including cherry-picking changes. Multiple workstations can configure concurrently even when isolated.
Configuration: Use over 4,700 built-in drag-and-drop meters, switches, buttons, and animations to create professional looking screens that display consistently across multiple devices.
Mine data: The high performance database interface gives complete access to all current, historical, and alarm data.
Designed for operators: Operators can oversee multiple displays at a glance and easily configure their own trends with a single click.
