Improve Automation Systems with iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry apps by Watch*IT OPC(June 19, 2012)
Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2012
Remote Process Alarms, LLC, makers of Watch*IT OPC Express have added many new features and performance improvements with the release of Watch*IT OPC Express version 2. Building on the success of the previous release, RPA has added features and refinements driven by its users. Owner Jeffrey Steele says We listened to our customer feedback and have added functionality that makes the Watch*IT OPC Express even more valuable.
On top of the list of value added functionality is an included historian. In cases where an automation system does not have historical services, Watch*IT OPC Express is an inexpensive path to historicizing Distributed Control System (DCS) or Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) System information and trends. The built-in historian is capable of storing up to 90 days of data for any OPC tag.
Watch*IT OPC Express also works with existing Historical Data Access (HDA) compliant historians. This allows the mobile apps to query and display data from either an existing HDA system or from Watch*IT OPC Expresss own built-in historian. Configuration is simple. Simply point Watch*IT OPC Express to a HDA database and register the desired tags. After registration, users can query the tags from the desktop or mobile apps.
The historian feature adds to a host of features Watch*IT OPC Express already had that help get the most out of DCS, SCADA, HVAC and other Automation systems. Here is a partial list of features found in Watch*IT OPC Express that make using and supporting an automated process easier and effective.
- Connect to your favorite OPC Server.
- Set alarm limits for LOLO, LO, HI, HIHI that users receive via email and text messages.
- Create custom HMIs to display data using Watch*IT OPC Expresss HMI Builder. This Read-Only HMI is a great way to see data on tablets and mobile devices without having to invest in expensive vendor HMI terminals.
- The WebExpress feature allows Watch*IT OPC to act as a Web Server to display your HMI Pages or the default data display pages in a web browser.
- Store data locally within Watch*IT OPC Express
- Access data from any HDA compliant database
- Watch*IT OPC Mobile Apps for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry displays shop floor data to most of todays mobile devices.
