SCADA/HMI software upgrade

InduSoft has released a major upgrade for InduSoft Web Studio v7.0, adding new features to the most comprehensive SCADA/HMI software package on the market.

More than a simple product update, the Service Pack 1 upgrade provides a variety of included features such as multiple language development support for Japanese, French, Portuguese and German along with SSL email (support for Gmail), new symbol libraries, new drivers and much more. Service Pack 1 is provided free of charge to existing InduSoft Web Studio v7.0 customers, and can be downloaded via the Internet.

To help customers optimize machine and process performance, the upgrade provides Statistical Process Control (SPC) to the already feature rich trending capabilities. Without making any modifications to their project, users can enable the SPC capabilities of the trend to display average, minimum, maximum and standard deviation for process values in real-time by simply clicking on an icon, with no programming necessary.

With this upgrade, InduSoft also introduces a new (optional) OPC module that supports XML applications with full control over communication. Users are able to send and read any process variable on demand, and control when items are enabled or disabled. Automatic expansion makes it exceptionally easy to configure arrays. The new OPC module adds more flexibility by supporting multi-threading capability, allowing users to have multiple communication threads even when connecting to the same server.

New communication tools improve both human and machine communications. To provide a variety of email options, users now have the ability to send secure emails using SSL over various providers such as Gmail. New (optional) IEC/DNP3 drivers provide efficient and reliable communications for the electrical and utilities industries.

With the aim of faster and easier deployment, Service Pack 1 implements tag integration with CoDeSys that enables users to easily use CoDeSys tags inside InduSoft. Adding even more flexibility, new function support VBScript parallel execution gives users the choice to run global procedures in a multithreaded or linear execution.

InduSoft Web Studio flexible licensing options previously supported 150 to 512,000 tags. Service Pack 1 adds the choice to go up to 10 million tags. Huge, multi-continent supervisory applications can now be handled with ease and power.  

A customizable product installer lets users turn their applications into products they can distribute to their customers, or deploy quickly on their own equipment. This saves disk space by customizing only the options users want to install.

"Our customers' satisfaction is our top priority," says Marcia Gadbois, president of InduSoft. "We listened to our customers' wants and needs and have included many of them in this upgrade. This service pack will make their jobs easier and their applications more flexible and powerful."
