In addition to traditional SCADA functions, WebAccess features an intelligent dashboard to facilitate cross-platform, cross-browser data analysis and provide a user interface based on HTML5 technology. Furthermore, in addition to built-in widgets, WebAccess is also equipped with Widget Builder, which enables system integrators to design unique widgets and applications. The basic components of WebAccess are as follows: 1. Project Node: This is the project development platform of WebAccess and serves as a web server for all clients to connect to development projects as well as remotely monitor and control the system. All system configuration settings, project database files, and graphics are stored in the project node. 2. SCADA Node: This node enables real-time communication with automation equipment and equipment control via serial, Ethernet, or proprietary communication using the various built-in device drivers. The SCADA node not only manages local controls and monitoring, but also provides real-time data to all remote clients. 3. ViewDAQ Client: Through Microsoft Internet Explorer's ActiveX control, ViewDAQ Client monitors and controls the SCADA node. The client first connects to the project node to obtain the address of the SCADA node, then communicates directly with the SCADA node using proprietary communications over a TCP/IP connection. Data is displayed in real- time as dynamically animated graphics and presented along with real-time historical trends and alarm information. The ViewDAQ Client can be used to acknowledge alarms and change set-point and status data, as well as other information. 4. Dashboard Client: This enables users to access the dashboard server through any browser on any platform, such as a computer, pad, or smartphones equipped with iOS, Android, or Windows. Feature Details Supports Private/Hybrid Cloud Architecture WebAccess is a 100% web-based HMI and SCADA software with private/hybrid cloud software architecture. WebAccess offers large equipment vendors, SIs, and enterprises the ability to access and manipulate centralized data and to configure, change/update, or monitor equipment, projects, and systems all over the world using a standard web browser. With cloud-based WebAccess, large amounts of device data are uploaded to the cloud via the MQTT web socket protocol. Predefined nodes can be integrated with Node-RED to provide a visual IoT tool, enabling data to be displayed on the cloud dashboard and Microsoft PowerBI. WebAccess also offers plug-and-play functionality for synchronizing data configuration between local and cloud devices, thereby enabling online maintenance and modification. Business Intelligence Dashboard WebAccess provides an HTML5-based dashboard as the next generation of WebAccess HMI. SIs can use the dashboard editor to create a customized information page featuring analysis charts and diagram widgets. The built-in widget library contains numerous widgets, such as trends, bars, alarm summary, map widgets, etc, and the included Widget Builder can be used to create unique widgets. After dashboard screens have been created, end users can access the data using use the dashboard viewer via various platforms, such as Explorer, Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, and on various devices, including PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones, for a truly convenient viewing experience. Widget Builder Widget Builder is a widget development tool based on HTML5 and featuring an intuitive UI. Users can edit widgets remotely from any location using any browser and at any time. Widget Builder provides users with various design tools for creating widget components and drawing shapes and objects with a wide range of animations. Additionally, all widgets can be easily imported and exported for reuse. Open Interface WebAccess opens three types of interfaces, including RESTful API and SignalR, for various uses.First,WebAccessprovidesawebserviceinterfaceforpartnerstointegrateWebAccess data into apps or application systems. Second, a pluggable widget interface is opened for programmers to develop widgets and run WebAccess Dashboard. Finally, WebAccess opens WebAccess API, which is a DLL interface for programmers to access the WebAccess platform and develop Windows applications. By supporting these interfaces, WebAccess serves as an IoT platform for developing IoT applications in various vertical markets. Integrated with WebAccess/IVS WebAccess is tightly integrated with WebAccess/IVS to provide a comprehensive video management solution that supports real-time monitoring and video playback. With this intelligent video surveillance system, events can be displayed as alarms and video playback performed accordingly. Integrated with WebAccess/NMS WebAccess/NMS is a network device management system based on HTML5. WebAccess can be easily integrated with a web interface. Additionally, with WebAccess graphics, users can monitor the real-time status of network devices via the network topology and search the event logs. Integrated with WISE-PaaS/RMM Previously, WebAccess only supported sensor and device monitoring. Now, with the integration of WISE-PaaS/RMM, WebAccess supports monitoring of the equipment and platform status, such as the CPU temperature, CPU usage, and board temperature, thereby enabling remote equipment monitoring.
