InduSoft Web Studio™
InduSoft Web Studio ™ (or IWS) is a powerful, integrated tool that exploits key features of Microsoft® operating systems, and enables you to build full featured SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) or HMI (Human Machine Interface) applications for your industrial automation business.
IWS applications consist of animated operator-interface screens, communication drivers (for PLCs and I/O protocols such as Modbus, DFS, Profibus, and so forth), tags database, and additional modules such as alarm monitors, logic, trend control charts, recipes, schedulers, and securitysystem.
IWS applications interface with industrial I/O systems and other Windows applications in the run-time environment using ODBC, DDE, NetDDE, OPC, or TCP/IP protocols. You can also operate the application through a standard Web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape).
The development environment of InduSoft Web Studio supports all main operating systems for Desktop and Server editions, currently supported by Microsoft. After developing the application with InduSoft Web Studio, you can deploy and run it in any supported Microsoft platform.
InduSoft Web Studio: Runtime for Microsoft Windows operating systems for desktop and servers, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2003 Server, and Windows 2008 Server R2 (32 or 64 bits). This platform is ideal for medium and large systems (up to 10 million tags) that run in a PC on the plant floor, control room, or even on the cloud.
EmbeddedView: Runtime for Microsoft Windows Embedded operating systems, including Windows XP Embedded and Windows Embedded Standard. This platform is ideal for small to medium systems (up to 4000 tags) that run in an embedded device or HMI panel. We recommend this platform when your project does not have the hardware requirements of a “regular” Windows platform, but requires a smaller footprint.
CEView: Runtime for Microsoft Windows Embedded CE operating systems, including Windows mobile 6.5 and Windows Embedded CE. This platform is ideal for small systems (up to 4000 tags) that run in an embedded or mobile device or HMI panel. It is the most affordable solution (software and hardware) and it is still based on a standard platform (non-proprietary system).
