Proficy HMI / SCADA
Free enhancements for iFIX
The events list is a comprehensive and permanent record of SCADA activity. It includes a chronological and searchable record of operator actions and system activity such as alarms, operator actions, event messages and more. Operators can also add their observations to specific events or even their own text messages. With advanced filtering capabilities and quick filtering on location and device, it is easy to access historical events from any period. The events lists helps with auditing operator actions for security and accountability.
The Productivity Tools Menu is simple and intuitive for users, providing a complete navigation system for iFIX. The menu includes recognizable functions like “Back," “Forward," “Home," and “Favorites” as the standard though it is completely user configurable. Users can navigate to any picture or iFIX configuration tool—database manager, workspace, or mission control—as long as they have access. This feature makes iFIX more user-friendly and easier to learn and operate for simpler, faster, and more efficient day-to-day operations.
A central responsibility for any operator is the ability to quickly identify and effectively respond to exception conditions within the system. Productivity Tools provides operators with enhanced alarm management features for effective alarm management. It includes a multitude of alarm notification and management functionality that helps increase operator awareness, reduce alarm flooding, decrease response time, and improve system reliability, including:
Tab displays are a high-data density, low-clutter interface for equipment information and supplementary resources. The number, content and labels of each tab are completely flexible and customizable. Tabs can include any graphics content, or iFIX pictures you need, plus other supported Windows formats such as PDF documents, diagrams, and ActiveX controls.
Tab displays provide:
With Pan and Zoom, picture interaction enhancements enable operators to quickly transition between macro and micro overviews of all operations and connected sites. Operators can quickly and easily drill down into a specific site or area of the system to interact with individual devices or monitor smaller areas in detail.
iFIX Productivity Tools screen interactions provide a more intuitive operator interface. These enhancements make operators more effective by avoiding information overload and enabling them to manage the information on screen while quickly and easily having the ability to access detailed information.
