CONTEC Co., Ltd. (listed on the Second Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Securities Code: 6639) has developed HMI (Human Machine Interface) / SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) software that facilitates the construction and operation of factory and production process monitoring/management systems. The new CONPROSYS™ HMI System (CHS) became available for download and purchase from the dedicated website on July 1, 2020.
This new HMI/SCADA software is based on HTML5 technology. The software collects data, enables control functions as well as alarm detection and notifications, and displays process charts, trend graphs, reports, and other information from various IoT gateway devices compatible with CONPROSYS series and MQTT (Message Queueing Telemetry Transport) communication devices on an HMI monitoring screen. This enables simplified development and operation of monitoring and management systems for a variety of purposes.
Licenses are available according to the scale of the system (number of projects), and the software can be downloaded and purchased directly from CONTEC’s dedicated website. A free trial version of the software is also available.
Monitoring is possible through any browser that supports HTML5, allowing users to monitor equipment not only from PCs but also tablets and smartphones. With support for Windows, Android/iOS, Mac, and Linux, monitoring and operation tasks are not limited to any specific OS or hardware configuration.
All development and execution tasks involved with constructing a system can be performed over the web. No specialized knowledge is necessary, and screen creation is as easy as dragging and dropping using a web browser. The ability to work with onscreen data without a program, such as when linking collected data and databases with various information, and to control equipment makes it possible to develop systems quickly.
The software includes an image library for drawing process charts with more than 60 different components (including lamps, labels, trends, meters, lists, and tables), as well as a dedicated tool for simplified editing of detailed screens. Together, these features enable “visualization” of data without the need for programming. Take advantage of a variety of components, including alarm summary, alarm history, historical trends, reports, data change history, operation history, instrument monitor, and map.
The software supports the MQTT protocol, which is becoming a popular lightweight IoT protocol, and can also be used with IoT gateways that use MQTT communication functions. An MQTT broker is also included, eliminating the need for preparing a separate broker.
Using a Windows Server environment as the execution environment makes it possible to use the software in any environment, including in the cloud or an on-premise environment. Meet a variety of customer demands without being limited by the environment, whether starting a new cloud service or developing a new system for simple visualization of an existing factory.
Licenses can be purchased according to the scale of the system (number of projects), and the software can be downloaded and purchased directly from CONTEC’s dedicated website. A free trial version of the software is also available. CONTEC’s demo site also allows users to see just how convenient the development environment is.
