Site-wide SCADA

31 March 2008

ControlMaestro™ 2008 is said to be built upon 20 years of the SCADA application Wizcon Supervisor (now in its 9th generation, with more than 60,000 licenses) and on 15 years of Elutions’ machine-to-machine enterprise asset and energy management experience and wireless technologies.

It combines information, communication and automation systems to enable remote services, process security, engineering productivity, and user mobility across an entire site or multiple sites. Current Wizcon users can upgrade ‘at a mouse-click, using a simple built-in application migration tool.’

Elutions says that a high degree of productivity is achieved using an object-oriented approach to creating applications; the developer can avoid repetitive time-consuming, labour-intensive and error-prone tasks and instead think in logical terms of how real-life objects, devices and processes interact. The software also provides advanced performance Web-enabled remote access, secured enterprise architecture, enhanced engineering development productivity, user mobility, and wide-area wireless control to reduce costs and improve services. It has been built with dot NET, Windows Vista, and Windows Mobile.

Most of the Web features are available on PDAs, Smartphones and Panel PCs with the help of the ELUTIONS mobility kit. With the Mobile Application Manager, customers can select the elements that they want to see on a PDA and configure each of them, for example setting the element size. Clicking the Launch button enables direct visualisation of the application rendering on a PDA.
