Iconics, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner of the Year and provider of Web-enabled industrial visualization software for Windows operating systems, is excited to announce the expansion of its HMI/SCADA, Building Automation and Manufacturing Intelligence solutions to include MobileHMI, a Line of Business Windows Store app for Windows 8 .

Users can visualize plant operations from Windows 8 devices with dazzling, fully animated graphics, or respond to alarms and alerts in real time. They can utilize natural multi-touch gestures to swipe through operations and zoom or drill down into areas that need attention most. ICONICS MobileHMI allows users to achieve instant, one-touch access to operational conditions of concern or KPIs of interest.  The Search charm allows users to explore and identify all available information on topics of interest. With MobileHMI, users are made immediately aware of critical alerts (notifications) that are delivered to mobile devices and displayed on the Start screen via the MobileHMI live tile.

“Iconics has proven that Windows 8 delivers the responsiveness and robustness needed for critical utility, process and discrete manufacturing applications," said John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft Corp. "Plant operators and supervisors no longer need to be tethered to the control room, and corporate executives are now virtually a touch away from real-time operations performance KPIs, independent of their travel schedules."

The Iconics’ app for Windows 8 fully integrates with and communicates with, Iconics GENESIS64 HMI/SCADA and Building Automation Servers. This integration enables OPC, OPC-UA, BACnet, SNMP, and Modbus TCP/IP compliance, helping ensure that data from any plant, building, equipment or system is virtually immediately viewable on a Windows 8 device. ICONICS offers a packaged server/app solution that can be plugged on top of almost any plant control network or building automation system network to make it accessible from Windows 8 devices.

ICONICS CEO and President Russ Agrusa stated, “The MobileHMI App for Windows 8 is a rich, full visualization client for end users  to visualize and analyze alarms, graphics and assets from anywhere and at any time. ICONICS is proud to launch our MobileHMI app for Windows 8.”

With MobileHMI, Iconics continues to demonstrate its philosophy of configuring once and publishing for 'AnyGlass'. Visualizations, including dynamic animated graphics, real-time and historical trends, real-time grids, and much more, can be defined once and then published to run on the MobileHMI app for Windows 8 devices, on Windows 7 or Windows 8 desktops, within any Web browser, as a Microsoft SharePoint Web Part, or on Windows Phones.
