PcVue is a fully-featured product that represents the latest advances in SCADA software for multi-station monitoring and control.
The new PcVue range has been designed using recommendations from integrators, OEMs and end-users, and based on ARC Informatique’s considerable experience in the industrial automation sector. PcVue features modern ergonomics and tools based on object technology to minimize the time for application development, including the latest tools from Microsoft user interface standards and the security features of Windows® platforms.
PcVue provides a flexible solution for supervising industrial processes, utilities and infrastructure. It meets industrial standards of reliability and performance while maintaining the user-friendliness of an office application. It spans requirements from single-user applications to complex client-server applications with redundancy.
The Advanced Configuration Environment (ACE)
‘’A consistent and innovative platform to develop your application’’
The Advanced Configuration Environment (ACE) of PcVue brings a consistent and innovative platform to develop your application. PcVue ACE is designed to maximize programmer productivity by providing components with similar user interfaces. It presents a single interface in which all developments are done. This ACE brings many features for creating object descriptions, mimics, communication frame with PLC., user rights, etc.. . It also provides advanced tools for creating the client/server architecture and deploying the software throughout the network.
Dynamic, intuitive use of configuration boosts PcVue’s ease of use.
The ACE includes the Application Explorer, an “All in one” configuration tool for configuration and diagnosis, the Application Architect to modelize objects and create applications, and the Smart Generators a suite of import tools for mass configuration from third-party or in-house configuration tools (PLC programs, CAD drawings, user software and legacy SCADA/Building Management Systems).
The Powerful Graphical User Interface
‘’Everything you need to design and display full motion graphics of your processes’’
The user friendly environment, the set of built-in animations and viewers, objects libraries but also the generic approach of the design, make the development fast and easy using an on-line configuration.
The support of innovative run-time features such as a state-of-the-art animated 3D objects or a GEO Map control for GIS decision making, enhanced even more the operator experience and efficiency.
‘’Yet more protocols’’
PcVue supports an extremely wide range of communication standards, including built-in drivers for Industry and machine builders (around 200 current and legacy protocols), Building Management Systems(lns,BACnet,SNMP),Power generation, T&D and Power Systems at large (IECs,DNP3) and Water treatment & distribution (most telemetry protocols available). Our policy is always to provide connectivity to the widest range of legacy and modern devices.
Data analysis tools
‘’Extract the value from your data’’
PcVue offers all the necessary tools for data extraction, stats and reporting to cover the need for information. PcVue records data to a SQLServer database with its built-in Historical Data Server which make the data available for short term or long term analysis and reporting. Statistical data can be exported to Excel using the built-in Data Export of PcVue. For advanced reporting PcVue can connect to Dream Report software.
Architectures & deployment
