MicroScan Industrial

Energy Management

MicroScan is a complete Windows based Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition software product, meeting the demands of both the industrial and research environments.

By customer acclaim, MicroScan is the price-performance leader for SCADA packages. Operating on the most popular multi-tasking platform ensures flexibility and conformity to industry standards to serve your current needs, while being ready to expand when you are.

Developed around a multi-tasking modular concept you can choose the exact system to meet your needs, then add new modules as your process grows.

MicroScan is known to be the best feature packed Recorder module for gathering valuable data, while the powerful Mimic module provides screens (MMIs) which give the operator direct plant control.

Continuous development places MicroScan in the leading position as a bench mark upon which other packages are measured.

MicroScan opens a whole new world of power and innovation previously unavailable to industrial users. Like a window into your plant, MicroScan is a proven money saver and money earner, as all the plant problems are discovered and solved, which greatly increases your efficiency.

Recorder:

The recorder module is a vital component to any SCADA system as it represents the data acquisition component. The visual displays can switch between the data (spreadsheet) format and the line (trend graph) format to group and display information instantaneously and historically with on screen viewing as far back as you want to go.

The features include comprehensive alarming, totalising, printouts, report generation and an operator notepad with time and date stamping. The recorder also supports linking to other software modules to further extend the reporting and control capabilities.

Mimic:

The Mimic module is the software equivalent to a hard-wired control panel offering comprehensive operator interfacing to your process control requirements.

The Mimic has 50 screens, each of which can be set up as a pictorial depiction of a section of the factory, to display objects showing process variables and the operating status of the plant equipment. Now we add command buttons and switches to control set points and operate your equipment.

You can start to see the potential of the Mimic Package when communicating to PLC's with screen update times configurable up to half a second (now that is fast!). This must be the most effective way to interface and control your process.

When you add all this to the Recipe features and DDE support, this makes for total process control at your fingertips.

Networking:

The sharing of data between the active and passive computer nodes running MicroScan, is supported on both the Novell file server styled network, and the Windows multiple independant server network.

For Sites with more than one active computer node, data can be shared between active computer nodes. Also passive computer nodes have access to data from any active computer node.

Passive computer nodes can be run continuously or simply started when required to provide the latest run time data or view historical information. Security is provided to regulate the sharing of data.

DDE - Dynamic Data Exchange:

MicroScan supports Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) and Dynamic Link Library (DLL) communication for customised user applications. The INDDE module allows tailor-made report generation modules or specialised controller modules to be written in either Visual Basic, Visual C++, Excel or Lotus, and then run alongside the SCADA to perform specialised tasks created to meet your exact requirements.

These features add to the scope of your process monitoring needs and is the ideal development tool for truly innovative management solutions. This software can link you to the heart of your process, and now with your imagination, the sky is the limit.
