As a proven automation platform, CIMPLICITY provides true client-server visualization and control—from single machines to plant locations spanning the world—helping you manage your operations and improve decision making. Based on decades of GE's research and development, CIMPLICITY is the HMI and SCADA of choice for the world's largest organizations. For applications of all sizes, CIMPLICITY can help deliver faster response, reduce costs, and increase profitability. Our latest version enables high performance HMI to speed operator actions, offers secure-by-design connectivity and certification management, and enhances modeling for repeatability and time savings.

Introducing CIMPLICITY 11

Our new Version 11 significantly reduces time-to-value with Rapid Application Development tools including new OPC UA auto-discovery, enhanced mimic-building tools and libraries, and REST APIs for remote configuration. Version 11 also features SQL AlwaysOn support for high availability, threadpooling to increase overall system performance, alarm setup enhancements, and support for the latest operating system and database updates.

Faster configuration and deployment

With CIMPLICITY, you can use classes and objects for building a structured database quickly. Modeling allows you to create templated applications for repeatable assets, which can be leveraged in both existing clients and new Web HMI. Employ object-oriented design for easy repeatability and faster time-to-value through modeled context.

Highly reliable

Unlike some HMI/SCADA software, CIMPLICITY is not Java based. Instead, you can reduce risk with a proven platform, deeply tested, with precise upgrades. We're using CIMPLICITY software, too, in our own plants-and it works.

Superior alarm capabilities

Leveraging OPC UA, CIMPLICITY allows OPC UA alarm clients to collect and display active alarm details for cross-application viewing and faster response. The OPC UA Server supports alarm filtering, and acknowledgments and comments. Additionally, CIMPLICITY's Alarm Cast provides advanced, real-time notification.

OPC UA connectivity and security

With OPC UA Server support for modeled data, CIMPLICITY helps you aggregate systems for a single connection to your SCADA and consolidated views. Additionally, CIMPLICITY's Global Discovery Server reduces threats from cyber attacks with overall certificate-based communication. Achilles Practices Certification further demonstrates superior secure-by-design technology.

Rich features, extensive drivers

CIMPLICITY offers one of the richest HMI/SCADA feature sets. As an example, our powerful Digital Graphic Replay add-on recorder lets your team analyze events that occurred in the past. Also, our GE-tested I/O drivers enable robust communication to thousands of mixed vendor devices and instruments.

Java-based HMI/SCADA:
Is it worth the risk?



Java-based HMI/SCADA systems offer an OS-independent product. However, some Java-based HMI/SCADA systems do come with disadvantages. Understand the potential risks of Java-based HMI/SCADA versus solutions such as GE Digital's iFIX and CIMPLICITY HMI/SCADA.  Read the white paper
