Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group (IAG) are pleased to announce the launch of a new huge step forward in HMI/SCADA software with a HTML5 based Business Intelligence Dashboard.

Building on the success of previous versions, WebAccess 8.0 is a leap forward in the design of SCADA software. Going beyond SCADA, WebAccess 8.0 is also a HTML5 Business Intelligent Dashboard that can be opened from anywhere on any HTML5 compatible browser. The Business Intelligent Dashboard analyses data and helps managers make decisions as to what to do and WebAccess 8.0 also provides developers with the tools to design their own widgets and applications and the integration of Microsoft Excel reports.

Through HTML5, a limitless number of users, with varying access levels are able to read information and make changes from wherever they are using either the Internet or Intranet.

The front-end of WebAccess 8.0 is the dashboard, and through this HTML5 graphical user interface users are able to monitor and diagnose issues with their end devices. Through the use of many built-in widgets, customers are able to watch and analyse equipment to see the information that they want. The large number of pre-built widgets gives users the ability to get going immediately without the need to program extra functions.

WebAccess 8.0s three open interfaces, allows it to become an IoT Platform and gives developers the opportunity to develop applications from the bottom up. The Web Service interface allows partners to integrate WebAccess data into applications and application system. The pluggable widget interface lets developers write their own widgets to run from the dashboard. Thirdly, the WebAccess API allows developers to write DLLs to use in Microsoft Windows applications. This open source approach to development gives users the greatest amount of flexibility for those who require it.

WebAccess 8.0 goes beyond SCADA by providing the ability to produce reports in Microsoft Excel. Included is a set of Excel templates or users can build their own report templates to generate daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reports to help predict the status of equipment.

WebAccess 8.0 is helping deliver device information across the cloud in era of the Internet of Things and will help integrators of water treatment plants, facility management systems, renewable energy systems and so on.
