GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced Proficy HMI/SCADA – Ifix Webspace, a web client for the company’s Ifix visualisation solution that enables informed decisions from anywhere, anytime.

Ifix Webspace enables full control and visualisation capabilities over a network without the need to change or alter the Ifix application.

Ifix screens and functionality are delivered to a web browser with no additional development effort and can be set up within minutes.

Like all GE Fanuc software products, Ifix Webspace complies with the company’s open and layered configuration and therefore works with a user’s existing infrastructure.

‘Ifix Webspace’s plug-and-play capability expands a customer’s existing Ifix investment and provides real-time information across the organisation,’ said Claire Cerrato, general manager of GE Fanuc’s automation software products.

‘Most importantly, the Ifix Webspace product expands the native integration of Ifix with our other Proficy software products and, ultimately, the solution possibilities for the user,’ she added.

Ifix Webspace provides companies with the option to extend their operational information to key stakeholders, who need it to plan, analyse, solve and ensure the least number of interruptions in their daily tasks to raise the overall efficiency of the organisation.

‘The web interface and easy setup allow knowledge workers who are not directly on the plant floor to have a real-time connection to what is happening there,’ said Cerrato.

‘And, Ifix Webspace can be used in low-infrastructure requirement, low-footprint applications such as building automation and security,’ she adds.

Ifix Webspace enables users to run multiple Webspace clients – viewing many systems from one point.

They can also launch multiple sessions from one Ifix system to view different aspects of a single application from one point.

This application has several flexible configuration topologies and can be installed on an independent dedicated server or the main Ifix server.

A dedicated server setup is typically used when a large number of clients are expected, allowing for Ifix Webspace to utilise all of the server’s power to serve the connected clients.

Multiple Webspace servers can be installed to scale the total application to a larger distributed architecture and serve the customer’s stakeholders on a global scale.

Ifix Webspace screens are ported instantly from the Ifix application requiring no interaction, conversion, alteration or additional development, and this includes screens from prior versions of Ifix/Fix32 as well.

Ifix Webspace has the capability to be a full-featured HMI/SCADA client and provides: real-time data updates; multiple sessions; secure containment; e-signature; animations; control elements; alarms and warnings; and access to third-party applications.
