Web Studio v6.1 from InduSoft (IWS 6.1) introduces VB scripting for Microsoft Windows CE-based devices and Web browsers. Latest release to the SCADA software package also adds a new trending tool, sophisticated screen translations, an advanced development environment, and database management functions. An optional wizard imports legacy PanelMate applications.

Current scripting language is still supported while allowing developers to work with Visual Basic as well. VBScript allows scripted applications to be ported to Windows CE devices, such as PDAs, or viewed on Web browsers with no limitations on code complexity. Users can move information between enterprise and field; build applications quickly; download, collect, display, modify, and automatically sync data; create database applications without programming; and convert PC or paper-based processes into mobile applications. Data moves seamlessly in real time or over intermittent connections.

Trend Object expands options for viewing data. It places no limits on the number of pens and each can be configured. Users can choose between Step and Smooth displays. Historical and real-time data can display simultaneously. Other enhancements include simplified translation for operator interfaces; an export function automatically creates the spreadsheet. IWS 6.1 also uses tabs to keep several screens open and navigate among them, and it has two database tools: IWS database interface for CE has been enhanced; ActiveX Data Objects provide a way to integrate plant floor data with a corporate database. A new IWS grid interface allows direct interfacing to SQL from within IWS using grid objects. Finally, an optional PanelMate import tool converts legacy PanelMate applications into IWS applications running on an NT or CE platform.
