Key Features

  • Menu & Navigation - easy to use navigation controls with intuitive customizable
    configuration.
  • Screen Interaction - advanced pan and zoom screen tools, multi-display and multi-screen
    arrangement functions that enable you to make operations more efficient with fewer
    resources.
  • Sequence of Events - high resolution, millisecond event recording and reporting for
    detailed fault investigation, production reporting and troubleshooting.
  • Accessible Reporting - permanent event recording with intuitive and accessible list
    reports cover chronological events, operator actions, alarms, disabled alarms, equipment
    state summary and much more.
  • Alarm Management - comprehensive alarm handling including dynamic changes to
    alarm limits, intuitive acknowledgement options, alarm disabling and reports such as the
    Disabled Alarms List help maintain system integrity.
  • Robust Control & Operations - control dialogs provide a consistent, universal operations
    interface with safe control steps and inherent awareness of equipment state ensures that
    screens and real-world conditions are synchronized.
  • Database Management (dbArchitect) - essential project development tool which
    enables direct import of IEC-61850 SCL files for project development and database
    management.

dbArchitect

dbArchitect is a tool for SCADA system engineers to automate and speed the production of GE iFIX and GE CIMPLICITY SCADA databases. Integrators and customers alike will benefit from this powerful tool that significantly speeds database production, while at the same time delivering clean, structured and consistent databases.

dbArchitect also provides intuitive visualization of the iFIX or CIMPLICITY database structure. Users are able to see the database in a way that reflects the structure and organization of their real world. Device location and function is self-explanatory, and navigation is both intuitive and informative.
