Web Client for HMI/SCADA

April 28, 2009
The power of Web access to HMI/SCADA applications keeps growing. This new product is said to offer "full control of all functions" including visualization requiring only a browser with no additional development effort.

Proficy HMI/SCADA iFix WebSpace from GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms offers client performance over the Web through the use of a Web browser without the need to change or alter the user's iFix application. Users can run multiple iFix WebSpace clients--viewing many systems from one point. They can also launch multiple sessions from one iFix system to view different aspects of a single application from one point.

"People need to make real-time information concerning their operations available to employees across their organizations," said Claire Cerrato, general manager of GE Fanuc's Automation Software Products. "They need to accomplish that with a minimum of setup, new infrastructure, and on-going maintenance--all barriers to gaining value and widespread use of information. iFix WebSpace's plug-n-play capability expands a customer's existing iFix investment and provides real-time information across the organization. Most importantly, the iFix WebSpace product expands the native integration of iFix with our other Proficy software products and, ultimately, the solution possibilities of the user."

This application can be installed on an independent dedicated server or on the main iFix server. A dedicated server setup is typically used when a large number of clients are expected. Multiple WebSpace servers can be installed to scale the total application to a larger distributed architecture and serve the customer's stakeholders on a global scale.
