EC: InduSoft Web Studio
Software - HMI software: InduSoft Web Studio is a scalable automation software for developing intuitive HMI/SCADA applications for machines, OEE dashboards, mobile solutions, data collection, and production/overhead digital signage. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.
InduSoft Web Studio is comprehensive HMI/SCADA software that includes all the tools you need to create your own SCADA and HMI applications. The software offers single SCADA/HMI development environment that deploys to the web, mobile devices, and the cloud, and is the only SCADA/HMI software package that allows deployment of screens and animations (without additional development) to any current tablet (iPad or Android), smartphones (iPhone, Android and others) or desktop PCs without the need to install a mobile application.
InduSoft Web Studio offers users the freedom to integrate with disparate PLCs using a library of native drivers, as well as OPC, and makes it easy to configure and deploy applications interacting with SQL databases or a historian, thanks to patented database connectivity.
Users can take advantage of free technical support via phone, internet, email, or live chat, and a library of free online training videos in a variety of languages.
InduSoft Web Studio protects investment of time and resources by maintaining 100% compatibility with previous versions of InduSoft Web Studio, as well as offering import tools for PanelMate and PanelBuilder.
The software is scalable from 150 tags (process variables) to 10 million tags. By including the same powerful features in the smallest license to the largest, InduSoft makes it easy for machine builders to be flexible on how they deploy. Little or no effort is required to flex between medium machines or small (fewer options) or even the full-featured, top-of-the-line machines.
