Visualisation / SCADA

SCADA & HMI – your view of your systems

A strong and powerful visualisation system is critical for your operators, managers, and engineers to keep your plant running. At InControl, we can develop and provide systems that your operators want to use, and benefit the smooth operation of your business, ensuring you are running a smart process plant.

SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition)

These systems are vital to the success of any plant. InControl can provide systems that are clearer, with more useful trend information to increase the long-term efficiency and productivity of your plant. The systems we can provide can be scalable and easy to use, bringing the following benefits:

  • Easy to recognise (situational awareness) plant mimic,
    (i.e. issues in bright colours the rest greyed out)
  • Alarm management
  • Data-logging and historian
  • Process optimisation
  • Remote access
  • Multi-site visibility
HMI (Human Machine Interface)

A well-developed HMI is the window into your machine or asset and has a huge bearing on how well your operators can control, monitor, and adjust aspects of your plant.

Without a user-friendly interface that presents your system information clearly, it is difficult for operators to view your plant effectively and follow operational trends.

For these reasons, InControl takes the HMI part of the system very seriously and it’s one of our key areas of innovation. We specialise in a new range of systems that are modular, easier to use and navigate, and clearly structured to work closely with the PLC. They allow more control, help avoid malfunction and make your operators more effective and productive.

SCADA upgrade

There are a number of reasons to upgrade your SCADA system, and you will need competent engineers either internally or from a trusted and certified Systems Integrator partner:

  1. When your SCADA system is no longer supported
  2. When your SCADA system is out of date
  3. When the PC platform/hardware is obsolete
  4. When the Operating System that the SCADA system is running on is no longer supported
  5. To take advantage of a subscription licensing model – spread the costs and instant updates
  6. To place your SCADA in ‘the cloud’ and give operator ‘off-site’ visibility of the process
  7. To improve the operator experience

Working with experienced SCADA systems engineers like InControl Systems can make your SCADA upgrade as painless as possible, and you will be able to take advantage of our experience with all the popular SCADA systems on the market.

InControl Systems are certified partners of many major brands, endorsing our abilities and competency.

Wonderware and WinCC upgrades

InControl Systems can support you with upgrades from Wonderware and Siemens WinCC, producing a ‘like for like’ installation or upgrading the SCADA with new features such as ‘situational awareness’ where only important events are highlighted in colour and normal behavior is ‘greyed-out’.

Improved user experience with your SCADA upgrade

Why not take advantage of a forced upgrade to develop a better user experience for your operators, simplifying the number of keystrokes and other findings you’ve gained from years of using the old system? Or even extend the new SCADA system as part of a wider digital transformation project?
