InduSoft have announced the latest update to their award-winning software, InduSoft Web Studio (IWS) Version 6.1 Service Pack 5 (SP5). InduSoft Web Studio (IWS) Version 6.1 Service Pack 5 (SP5) software, available from Dominion Electronics , introduces several new features such as Studio Mobile Access (SMA), the option to run as a Windows service and custom display resolutions. SP5 also brings many performance improvements and general enhancements, making InduSoft Web Studio better and easier to use than ever before.
Studio Mobile Access (SMA) - Data and Alarms to any browser in the organisation: Studio Mobile Access (SMA) allows any web-enabled smartphone or mobile device to display vital information about user’s InduSoft Web Studio application. In addition to Windows based devices, users can use their BlackBerry, iPhone, Motorola RAZR or other devices to acknowledge alarms and update process variables from anywhere. SMA allows operators to keep the process/machine running efficiently without being at the immediate location.
Run as a service/Security and increased uptime: The InduSoft Web Studio has the ability to run as a Windows service. This eliminates accidental shutdown of critical applications by operators. Since increased uptime is mandatory in today’s facilities, running as a service also allows InduSoft Web Studio (IWS) to start even when no users are logged on to the computer. This is suitable for remote installations or recovery from power failures. Running IWS runtime as a service increases the security of the system, blocking unauthorised users from slipping in and making any changes before launching the graphic interface.
Custom Resolution/Flexibility to ‘future-proof’ the application: The third new feature allows the creation of applications for custom display resolutions. The new feature future-proof users’ IWS applications for devices that, by design, use non-standard resolutions. It new feature also future-proofs IWS applications for devices that have not yet been developed. Users can also deploy their applications on an extended desktop, which saves money by using a PC and a remote display rather than two complete PCs. Users can also deploy their applications as a large marquee or graphical ‘Andon’ display, so that personnel can see production status and process information from anywhere, thus eliminating the need for costly, custom manufactured displays.
