IWS  -  Comprehensive Standard Technologies


Connect to any SQL database (MS SQL, MySQL, Sybase, Oracle), or MS Access or Excel, and ERP/MES systems (including SAP), even from Windows Embedded CE. InduSoft Web Studio is flexible, offering a built in interface that doesn’t require knowledge of SQL (for trends, alarms/events, grid and other objects). Use any SQL statement you need, anywhere you need it.

.NET and ActiveX

Use 3rd party controls to enhance your project. IWS is a container for ActiveX and .NET controls, allowing you to add functionality such as browsers, media players, charting, live streaming from cameras, and other ActiveX or .NET controls.

XML Screen Toolkit

Modify or create screens during the runtime, or import screens that you’ve created. The XML Screen toolkit requires developer level understanding of XML, and is available as a paid add-on to InduSoft Web Studio.

Tag Database

IWS features an object oriented database with boolean, integer, real, strings, arrays, classes (structures), indirect tags and included system tags. Built-in functions allow you to create, delete, or modify the tags database settings during the runtime. This feature increases the flexibility to design generic templates that can be easily customized to each project, even during the runtime.


Two powerful scripting languages are supported; built-in InduSoft functions and standard VBScript. Take advantage of widely available resources for VBScript. Both the native InduSoft scripting language and VBScript can be used simultaneously to give you the functionality you need, even from thin clients. Script debugging tools for the native VBScript editor include break-points, and a variable watch list to improve scripting productivity.


 InduSoft Web Studio provides native OPC interfaces, such as OPC DA (Server/Client), OPC HDA(Server), UA (Client) and OPC .NET 3.0 (Client). InduSoft Web Studio v7.1 also supports OPC XML as an additional add-on. OPC DA and UA connectivity are also available in Windows CE operating systems.
