In IIoT applications, data integration plays a very important role, to achieve data integration, it’s essential that communication between onsite machines and upper layer data management systems (SCADA, ERP…etc.) is seamless, however, in factories where very often each controller uses Continue reading New Product Announcement : cMT-G01→
In today’s competitive global economy, soaring energy prices and environmental regulations have driven energy management and efficiency. Metering and monitoring of electricity demand and consumption is core to an energy management system for domestic, commercial and industrial plant.

Launched late in 2013, Automation Direct’s Point of View software offers a powerful but easy-to-use software solution for developing and deploying SCADA/HMI solutions throughout industry. The software – available in 500, 1000 and 5000 tag versions – is available as runtime only, development only or combined runtime and development versions and has built-in communications drivers.
The software includes all you would expect from a modern SCADA/HMI package – alarms, recipes, flexible graphical animation, database support, historical data and trending, event logging, FTP, Emailing, scheduling, symbols library, security, scripting and scaleability. It also includes communications drivers for the most popular PLCs.
The most recent enhancement to the software is a dedicated driver for Automation Direct’s newer DoMore processors allowing direct import of the tag name database for the PLC. DoMore – initially released as a high performance CPU compatible with the existing Direct Logic 205 PLC modules – is now also available as a processor in the terminator field-based I/O system.
In October 2012 KEP launched the latest release of their cost-effective Infilink HMI package – version 5.0.27.
This latest version focuses on a number of ease-of-use enhancements to the development software. These include shortcuts for function keys, object movement, aligning objects, resizing objects, zooming and maintaining the aspect ratio for rectangles/squares or ellipses/circles..
The new release also includes stronger encryption of user details.
With Infilink, KEP continue to offer a powerful low-cost solution to PC-based HMI with no upfront (or ongoing) cost for development software or maintenance. With the free development software and the 60 minute demo mode, users are able to fully implement and test their application at no cost only paying for a runtime license when they wish to deploy the project to the live application. Infilink can be supplied to work with an existing OPC server or can be supplied with their own KEPServer product – available for a wide range of control devices and networks.
For applications running on the shop floor, Lamonde Automation are now also offering a range of powerful and cost effective flat panel industrial PCs from Nematron.
