Trend Web

Trend Web allows access to trending information from anywhere in the world and at anytime. Based upon ActiveX technology which can be embedded in a web page, Trend Web is automatically downloaded and installed on a user's computer the first time they bring up the page. No manual install or licensing procedure is required for the end user. Trend Web is suited for the user who needs remote access to view their data in a limited way. For example, a plant manager can receive an automated phone call from the plant if an alarm condition occurs. He can quickly get online to view the data at home before deciding if it is necessary for him to make an emergency trip into work. Another use is to give management or customers an update that is not a static report, but is current and up to date.

Trend Web can be configured to provide a list of charts for users to select to view, or the page can initially display a pre-selected chart. With the ability to embed into existing corporate intranets, extranets or the internet, you can keep everyone informed in real-time. Custom pages can be created giving a different presentation of data to different audiences. The Trend Web has been designed to support limited bandwidth access from remote locations without impacting performance. This ensures that even the most remote locations can access trending charts.

Key Features

  • Makes trend charts accessible without the complexity of installed software
  • Supports limited bandwidth access
  • Can be deployed into corporate intranets, extranets or internet sites
  • Multiple configurations or "views" can be configured
  • HTML and Web page scripting can be used to create custom pages with automation
  • Supports both historical & live modes

Using Free Tools To Detect Attacks On SCADA Networks
2015-05-09 14:28:25views: 1740

ICS/SCADA experts say open-source network security monitoring software is a simple and cheap way to catch hackers targeting plant operations. Operators at Natanz nuclear facility in Iran might well have caught Stuxnet before it spread and sabotaged operations at the plant if they had been watching the wires for anomalous network traffic, a pair of ICS/SCADA experts say.

Hackers gain full control of critical SCADA systems
2015-05-09 14:04:07views: 1806

Russian researchers have found vulnerabilities in industrial control systems that they say grant full control of systems running energy, chemical and transportation systems. The vulnerabilities were discovered by researchers who over the last year probed popular and high-end ICS and SCADA systems used to control everything from home solar panel installations to critical national infrastructure.

SCADA Attacks Double in 2014

Annual threat report from Dell Security shows not only a significant surge in the number of attacks on retail credit card systems, but industrial SCADA systems as well, which are much more likely to go unreported.
For Dell to report an annual surge in point-of-sale (POS) attacks aimed at payment card infrastructures might not be such a surprise to people who pay any attention to the news.

The Industrial Software Revolution Begins Now

Invensys is kicking off the conference “The Industrial Software Revolution Begins Now” and underscoring the ‘revolution’ concept with the release of its Wonderware InTouch 2014 and Wonderware System Platform 2014 software.

Integrating Video into HMI/SCADA
2012-06-29 10:19:55views: 2492

The useful integration of video with industrial control systems has been a reality for a few years, but a burst of applications and installations is on the horizon. Cheaper bandwidth, wide availability of Internet protocol (IP) cameras, and greater familiarity with industrial Ethernet networks seem to be driving user interest.

AdvancedHMI - a different approach to HMI development
2012-06-14 10:46:48views: 1793

AdvancedHMI base package is a free software used to build HMIs that display information residing in a PLC. You will find it to be one of the fastest platforms to build an HMI with. The software takes advantage of the Visual Basic .NET development environment so effort is focused on the core software and not reinventing a development environment.

Web Services and SCADA
2012-06-12 23:06:33views: 1372

Web services can be another method for connectivity to SCADA and MES systems. They can retrieve tomorrow's weather, the price of stocks or commodities, the time of sunrise and sunset, and a slew of other publicly-available resources.

SCADA virtualisation with WinCC Version 7
2011-12-21 12:01:11views: 1312

As automation solutions become increasingly complex, it follows that the effort required to maintain both hardware and software will also increase. PCs must be provided with suitable specification and operating systems to support the applications.

Cloud-Based SCADA Systems: The Benefits and Risks
2011-12-20 22:57:31views: 929

Cloud computing is a hot topic. As people become increasingly reliant on accessing important information through the Internet, the idea of storing or displaying vital real-time data in the cloud has become more commonplace. With tech giants like Apple, Microsoft, and Google pushing forward the cloud computing concept, it seems to be more than just a passing trend.

An alternative to DCS or PLC/SCADA
2011-10-04 13:46:22views: 875

Traditionally, users have had a choice between a DCS or a PLC/SCADA approach when selecting a control system for use in process control applications. A key benefit of traditional DCSs was that the suppliers took a ‘systems approach’ and it was designed for large scale applications.
