Courtesy: AutomationDirectAutomationDirect's Point of View is software for developing SCADA, HMI, and OEE/Dashboard projects that can be deployed anywhere. Designed for most Windows supported platforms, including Windows XP, 7, 8 and Server editions, Point of View projects can either run locally on a development workstation or be downloaded to a remote workstation to operate using Point of View runtime software. 

A project tag database manages all runtime data, including both internal variables and scanned I/O. Configurable drivers communicate in real time with programmable logic controllers, remote I/O devices, and other data acquisition equipment. Animated HMI screens and OEE dashboards give plant personnel a graphical view of the process. Integrated modules include alarms, events, trends, recipes, reports, scriptable logic, schedulers, a security system, and a complete database interface.

Point of View software supports three types of remote application viewers: a dedicated viewer for plant-floor operations, where navigation must be restricted to specific HMI/SCADA applications; a Microsoft Internet Explorer-based browser that enables full access to any authorized IP address or applications and a Studio Mobile Access viewer that works with any browser. Up to 48 simultaneous viewing clients of each type are supported. 

The Point of View SCADA/HMI software contains 19 communications drivers for connection to many industrial controllers from AutomationDirect as well as other models.
