ICONICS, Inc. (USA) - ICONICS, a Microsoft® Application Development Partner of the Year Finalist, Gold Certified Partner and provider of Web-enabled, OPC-based, HMI/SCADA Visualization and Manufacturing Intelligence software for Microsoft Windows® operating systems, is excited to announce the launch of its new MobileHMI apps for Microsoft Surface™ devices running Windows RT, Windows Phones, Apple iPads and iPhones and Android™ devices.
Users can visualize wind generation and turbine operations from any mobile device with dazzling, fully animated graphics or respond to alarms and alerts in real time. They can utilize natural multi-touch gestures to swipe through their utility assets and zoom or drill down into equipment to see all relevant information to support their maintenance tasks. ICONICS MobileHMI allows users to achieve instant, one-touch access to operational KPIs.
“ICONICS has proven that Windows 8 delivers the responsiveness and robustness needed for critical utility, process and discrete manufacturing applications," said John Richards, Senior Director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft Corp. "Plant operators and supervisors no longer need to be tethered to the control room, and corporate executives are now virtually a touch away from real-time operations performance KPIs, independent of their travel schedules."
MobileHMI apps are fully secure and communicate with ICONICS products such as GENESIS64™, AnalytiX®, Hyper Historian™ and others. This integration enables OPC, OPC UA, BACnet, SNMP, and Modbus TCP/IP compliance, helping ensure that data from any wind farm, plant, building or equipment is immediately viewable on your mobile device. ICONICS offers a total solution that can integrate with almost any plant control network or building automation system network to make it accessible from mobile devices.
"Our MobileHMI apps deliver rich visualization using HTML5 and Windows RT thin mobile technology," said ICONICS CEO and President Russ Agrusa. "Standard features, including dynamic real-time graphics, alarm notifications and extensive trending and charting, are now available on any device. ICONICS is proud to launch our MobileHMI app, via the Windows Store, Apple’s App Store and the Google Play™ store, to enable operations from Any Glass, Anytime™.”
With MobileHMI, ICONICS continues to demonstrate its strategy of configuring once and publishing to “Any Glass”. Visualizations, including graphics that are interactive with secure command and control capabilities, real-time and historical trends and much more, can be defined once and then published to run on the MobileHMI app. Supported form factors include Microsoft Surface, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and phones, Web browsers, and Microsoft SharePoint® Web Parts.
