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.
