Panorama, a SCADA platform that rises to the challenge of Industry 4.0!

03 April 2018

Codra supports its clients as they go for digital transition by providing a global, interconnected SCADA platform. We have moved on from vertical integration of software packages, for it’s time for the 360° approach where systems communicate and interact with each other. 

Industrial SCADA… the Connected Factory nerve centre

Our innovation-centred expertise and technology based on over 30 years’ industrial IT experience, pave the way to making production systems increasingly intelligent and powerful. With Panorama, you have a cross-cutting, upscalable IT platform at your fingertips dedicated to control and SCADA application design for industrial equipment, the production line and even the factory itself. 

As the Industry of the Future does not stop at processes alone, by harnessing Panorama you can quite simply extend the use of your SCADA applications to third-party systems (GIS, ERP, CAMM, etc.) and to all types of usage including:  BMS/FM, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and even site security and safety. What is more, you can wrap this in a very high level of cybersecurity that is intrinsic to Panorama. 

When it comes to systems interoperability, Codra has delved deeper, and is the first SCADA solution to be OPC-UA Client and Server-certified by the OPC Foundation. 

While SCADA is inextricably linked with real-time data processing, you should not lose sight of the record analysis component for monitoring your key performance indicators. Codra has radically overhauled the Analytics and Reporting component of the Panorama suite, so as to offer you greater flexibility when you use this non-real-time data. 

IT/OT convergence comes into its own with Panorama
Over and above the standard SCADA-related protocols (Modbus, OPC-UA, BACnet, LonWorks, IEC61850, etc.), our SCADA platform natively incorporates communication capabilities with LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) SIGFOX and LORA networks dedicated to the Internet of Objects.

You can literally digitise your physical IoT objects via its configuration workshop to achieve native, wholesale integration in your conventional SCADA system. Gone is the need for dedicated systems, as all the flows converge. Ambient temperature, pressure, door opening, smart meters from the IoT world combine with the other data from conventional PLCs to one and the same system… Panorama.

From now on, you can easily get more detailed information from your measurement points at low cost. Little does it matter what your line of business is, for you can enjoy many advantages including: 

• getting a grip of the control and operation of your complement of production systems to optimise operating and maintenance costs;
• measuring and adjusting your energy consumption in real time to improve the energy efficiency of your facilities and buildings;
• making operators’ tasks easier by notifying them with relevant information to boost their productivity. 

Together let’s put the potential of the Smart Factory work for you!

#IoT, #Cybersecurity, #Interoperability and #Analytics will be the keynote themes that we will be presenting on stand No. S148 at Smart Industry Expo, NEC Birmingham, 10-12 april 2018.
