Movicon™ BA is Progea’s SCADA/HMI solution designed for Building Automation for simplicity of use with correlated support services and documentation. Movicon™ BA offers all the great advantages of ‘Open’ software for integration and visualization of automation systems for modern buildings, whether residential, industrial, services or big communities. Movicon BA provides all the advantages of modern software with very flexible solutions.
Great experience matured through years of success, has allowed Progea to deliver solutions to all those who demand an integrated system using an all-in-one, powerful, open, visualization and control software.
Movicon BA project flexibility is empowered by XML-based project designing. This means the same one project can be executed in different architectures from safe redundant server systems for “mission critical” applications down to micro-applications for touchscreen, embedded, mobile and Windows CE-based systems. Easier to manage, very cost effective and scalable. Just the one software for your every application need.
Movicon BA software will empower your building supervision activities with greater openness and scalability than any other software.

It offers a vector-based graphic editor packed with purpose-built and customizable symbol and object libraries which come with 16 animation properties and powerful command functions.
It includes powerful Data Loggers that can log any event, alarm or process information (temperatures, consumption values, etc.), and save data history to Relational Database files in full automated mode.
Movicon BA is able to detect , measure and control the actual consumption in function of needs . Integrating Movicon BA in building management can achieve energy savings of between 5% and 30%.
Movicon BA simplifies planned maintenance with the option to activate alarms based on the statistical duration value instead of the associated variable’s set value.
Movicon BA uses purpose-built scheduler command objects that are simple and intuitive to use in calendar planning.
It offers a Speech Recognition facility that will enable users to interact with the control system using vocal commands as one would do in natural everyday situations.
Movicon BA is designed to enable system accessibility over Internet/Intranet architectures with any Internet browser or Apple iOS, Android, and Blackberry.

Movicon™ BA boasts full flexibility when it comes to integrating all building management systems into one single supervision project. That saves a lot of time and resources, and at the same time it improves supervision and control capabilities. This all boils down to saving you time and resources and as well as improving supervision and control capabilities. The Movicon™ BA technology is completely XML-based. With one single display screen you can at last manage control buses, lighting systems, heating and air conditioning systems, security systems, CCTV, power saving systems and any other device you normally use in your building management activities.
The Movicon BA flexibility will enable you to integrate your systems into any type of architecture that includes Desktop PC, Media Center, Tablet PC, touch panel, Palmtops, or smartphones. You can also access your system through the web using any Internet browser, smartphone, or tablet from all over the world. The unlimited viewing solutions ensure that you are in full control any time and any place.
Creating supervision projects with Movicon™ BA is simple and fun. A powerful object-based editor enables you to build graphic interfaces using animated and interactive items featuring vector graphics as well as your own BMP, GIF, or JPG images. All the tools you will ever need are built-in and ready to use. Pre-configured graphic object libraries, communication drivers, alarm management, logging and control, event scheduling, trends, and charts are all within a few clicks’ reach in one simple and user-friendly software environment.
Movicon BA offers the great advantage of being hardware-independent. This means that you can can run the same software on any PC, Touch Screen or Palmtop, connecting to all building control systems, via buses such as EIB/ Konnex, LON, BACNet, using control panels such as Notifier, Elkron and more, as well as bus systems based on Modbus RTU or TCP interface and much more. CCTV and IP Cameras can also be integrated. Another great advantage is that with Movicon™ BA you are free to use your system of choice. No other software can give you such flexibility and enable you to safeguard your investments at the same time.
Movicon BA offers you the use of one unique development environment for your supervision and control systems. An all-rolled-into-one environment means that you can make substantial savings when it comes to learning, personnel training, and maintenance. Movicon BA licenses are both scalable and flexible with the option to upgrade to Movicon to contribute further towards an overall reduction in development and maintenance costs.
Movicon BA includes powerful Data Loggers that can log any event, alarm or process information (temperatures, consumption values, etc.), and save data history to Relational Database files in full automated mode. The historical log format is open by credit of the ODBC technology, and supports SQL Server, Access, Oracle and more. Logged data may be viewed in 2D and 3D Charts, Trends, Tables and Reports and over the web. Powerful tools for analytically managing events and system downtimes make it possible to get reports on the duration of total and partial downtimes. The resulting data is displayable in table, pie chart or histogram format to reveal the alarms relating to the pre-selected period as well as their classification by “Duration” or “Frequency”. These reports can be viewed or printed upon command or whenever a specific event occurs and exported in various formats (Excel, PDF, HTML). The reports are designed to contain both concise and detailed information about every single alarm being statistically analyzed.
New technologies make it possible to manage and optimize energy resources used in buildings with the aim to improve the global environment crisis situation. Energy management efficiency is aimed at reducing emissions, consumption levels and energy waste to improve energy efficiency and reduce building running costs. The Directive EN15232, issued by the European Commission, defines Building Automation functions that when implemented have an impact on the building’s energy performance. It also provides methods for evaluating various requirements entailed and the effects of Building Automation Control Systems (BACS) on a long term basis by assessing and classifying the results obtained. Modern building project engineers can now integrate the latest technologies for improving energy efficiency by using a supervision system. Movicon BA is perfect for this job purposely designed as a smart system for detecting, monitoring and adapting energy consumption levels based on the building’s current needs. Integrating Movicon BA into your the building management process will save you 5% to 30% on energy consumption according to building size. This will lead to a substantial save in energy costs, quick investment returns with a considerable lower impact on the environment with less pollution thus contributing to eliminating the global greenhouse effect.
Movicon BA simplifies planned maintenance with the option to activate alarms based on the statistical duration value instead of the associated variable’s set value. This makes is easier to set thresholds with set-points based on the variable’s total time ON. To support users further in their work, Movicon also includes the option to associate external files to activate HTML help files, .AVI movie files, .WAV sound files (.WAV) or BMP files.
Movicon 11 is supported by Progea in Windows 10 operating system (all editions) and is fully supported in the Windows 10 Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business.
