What are the advantages of using this product?
The platform is based on a industrial .NET framework designed by Progea to ensure robustness, modularity and openness.
The platform’s Plug-in technology makes it completely modular to ensure the freedom needed to customize it’s framework with new modules including those developed autonomously with the SDK provided.
Standard Data Model
The platform’s Standard Data Model (Information Model) is based on OPC UA. Therefore, both Client and Server offer maximum openness and support to most complex information modules and typologies. Not only the usual data types but also complex structure types according to the OPC UA and PLC Open standard.
Historical data format independence
Whatever data type managed by the platform is independent from the persistence model due to Progea’s Virtual File System (VFS) technology. Projects or data recorded by the Historian and Data Loggers can reside on local XML files, Relational Database or in the Cloud independently.
New generation graphics
The platform’s enriched graphics are exclusively based on the new Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) vector graphics rendering engine and XAML. Technology that surpass the restricted use of the out-of-date Winform technology to offer a very modern graphical environment with exceptional vector graphics quality in both 2D and 3D.
The OPC UA technology is native and integrated for both Client and Server. Full support to the Data Access (DA), Alarms & Conditions (AC) and (HA) History Access specifications. Server is OPC Foundation certified. Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity integrated with a diverse number of protocols and gateway functions to connect the same Tag to a diverse number of devices simultaneously.
A platform designed to create any type of automation project using a powerful and fully integrated configuration environment complete with all features. A unique WPF workspace complete with all features based on the ergonomics concepts for simplicity-of-use to increase productivity. An all-inclusive platform to create any data server or HMI client project.
Security always guaranteed
Security management based on .NET membership to ensure that users and user access are managed with the maximum of security and independently from the provider. OPC UA and certified transports are used to ensure the maximum of security in managing data and information. Supports “Fault Tolerance” with automatic redundancy management in an array of servers. Supports FDA CFR21 Part 11.
New generation Web Client technology
The technology for Web Client access is based on HTML5 to ensure security and independence from browsers or plug-ins. APPs are also available for mobile devices (Android, iOS or Windows Universal APP).
