Administration, configuration and maintenance are performed through an independent application allowing the IGS to provide stable, reliable connections to thousands of mixed vendor devices and instruments. IGS can also be shared with third party applications.
Proficy HMI/SCADA Drivers
Provide direct and/or stand alone single drive OPC connections into the Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX and CIMPLICITY packages. When each OPC driver connects to a single device type it enables high performance dedicated channels for control and visualisation.
