Native cross-platform HMI solution

eScada doesn’t require any kind of installation procedure nor compilation.
Just copy a folder and start.

Microsoft x64, ARM
- server from version 2008 R2 to version 2022
- desktop from Windows 7 to Windows 11
- embedded from Windows 7 to Windows 11 IoT
- windows on ARM

Linux x64, ARM
- all modern Linux distributions

Client-server architecture

TCP/IP sockets and Ethernet support guarantee a high level of connectivity between eScada server component and several other eScada client components.
It is not necessary to distribute anything to the clients, they receive the configuration from the server.
From everywhere in your company, or from a remote site using VPN, you can operate with your equipment as you were in front of it.

Connectivity and Industry 4.0

eScada permits to use several instances of common server protocols.
Currently Modbus Server TCP, Hypertext Transfer Protocol, OPC-UA Server and Weihenstephan Standards for Production Data Acquisition are fully supported.
The implemented Weihenstephan physical interface is aligned to the Version 8 for bottling and packaging plants and machines of the food industry.

Sending emails with SSL/TLS, STARTTLS security.
HTTP, HTTPS requests implemented.

Dependently on the OS used it’s possible to read and write data using the major database engines currently present on market, such as Microsoft SQL server, mySQL, Oracle and many others, using OleDB technology.
Microsoft SQL Server is available for both OS, Linux and MS Windows.

Lua programming language

Lua language has been embedded in eScada to offer an efficient way to operate with data.
It is a powerful programming language which extends and completes derived tags objects.
An advanced use of Lua permits to integrate other external libraries written using C, C++ and C# languages.
Using online resources, you can use libraries for a variety of functions.

Encrypted project file

Encrypting project file provides a vital layer of security, ensuring that personal or confidential information remains safe from prying eyes, hackers, and other potential threats.
It's like having a secure vault for digital data, where only authorized individuals can access the contents.
By encrypting the project file, you're taking proactive steps to protect your customer privacy, maintain data integrity, and comply with security regulations.
It's an essential practice in today's digital age to safeguard sensitive information and prevent unauthorized access or data breaches.

Replace a broken HMI solution in minutes

The entire HMI solution available doesn’t require any installation and it could be stored on a removable support.
In the event of disaster recovery, it is necessary to remove such media from the broken hardware and insert it in a spare part, or using any other laptop, desktop PC, or server PC in your company and you can continue to operate with your machine.
In the event of emergency, the OS version you are running is not of importance as you can run the HMI solution using other types of hardware and OS.

Hardware architecture

Even the hardware architecture is your choice, the application binaries we can provide are available for x64 or ARM processors.
Raspberry PI with their OSs version are fully supported, even Windows on ARM OS is supported.

Multicultural environment

Nowadays in our companies there are a mix of cultures from all around the world.
Several languages are spoken and it is important to offer to the operators the opportunity to read the HMI interface using their own language.

Easy backup and restore

Using easy HMI commands, you will be able to backup the entire HMI solution and recipes data.
It’s very easy to create your own archive of recipes and restore them whenever you need it.
Your precious data regarding production parameters will be always in a safe place.

Communication drivers

Other kinds of communications drivers are works in progress and are not listed but in the event your device does not support any of the protocols listed above, do not hesitate to ask for its implementation.
We are very pleased to implement communication drivers on request.
