GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms announces that Cimplicity Version 7.5, the latest addition to the company’s family of HMI/SCADA products, is available for shipping in late March. Cimplicity 7.5 extends the product’s ability to solve the toughest supervisory monitoring and control projects.


The Digital Graphical Replay (DGR) function allows users to graphically analyze past events. Using data that is logged in Proficy Historian or Microsoft SQL Server, DGR lets users replay graphical screens to determine the cause of events or alarms, allowing application optimization or prevention of conditions that led to alarms. The DGR searches for conditions in the data and automatically sets start and stop times based on those settings. Playback in slow motion, real time or up to 10x the speed is allowed, as is multiple screen viewing.

Cimplicity 7.5 adds quick and easy navigation to applications using a drag and drop interface to create a hierarchical menu that appears in the tool bar. Colors and fonts can be configured so that screens can follow themes. This new capability saves hours of development time, and makes operators more productive. The advanced viewer adds direct OPC connectivity for extra flexibility in system architecture and allowing access to OPC data servers directly without configuring a point on the server.

Windows domain security further secures Cimplicity applications. To control access to functionality in the application, Windows group memberships can be mapped to roles and resources in Cimplicity. The existing security configuration can be used to save time, reduce the number of passwords, and make use of existing IT password policies.

Applications are deployed to viewers quickly, safely and easily using the new application deployment capability. Updated application files can be placed in the application server, and the viewers will automatically detect changes and update the files without user interaction. Running viewers will have the option to update live displays automatically or ask the operator when to update. www.gefanuc.com GE Fanuc
