Mobile manufacturing human-machine interface software puts information in workers’ hands where needed for smarter, faster decision making. Along with Genesis64, Iconics launched Version 10.9 of its MobileHMI and KPIWorX mobile apps, which also integrate wIconics released Version 10.9 of its Genesis64 HMI/SCADA and building automation suite, which includes universal connectivity with a wide variety of data sources including OPC, BACnet, SNMP, databases and Web Services, and enhanced compatibility with OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA).

Multiple enhancements to the alarm technology in Genesis64 now allow for access to many more data sources using OPC UA clients.

With Iconics' latest release, a number of security upgrades have been included to incorporate the latest advances made by the OPC Foundation to ensure secure, IoT-friendly OPC UA communications.

Along with Genesis64, Iconics also launched Version 10.9 of its MobileHMI and KPIWorX mobile apps, which also integrate with OPC UA technology. With such connectivity, these mobile apps enable operators, field service workers, managers, executives, and others to securely visualize, analyze, and store data from a multitude of geographically dispersed assets.

Iconics was one of the first in the automation software industry to achieve OPC UA Client Lab Certification from the OPC Foundation for its Genesis64 Platform Services.
