By just using the one development platform your Movicon XML projects can be run on Win32, Win64 or WinCE indifferently. Movicon™ CE is the most powerful HMI platform available for Windows™ CE today, entirely capable of satifisying your every need in visualization and control in a compact environment without forgoing the potentiality of the Scada system.
Movicon CE Overview
Movicon CE is a runtime engine for Windows CE that offers powerful and open HMI solutions. By just using the one development platform your Movicon XML projects can be run on Win32, Win64 or WinCE indifferently. Movicon™ CE is the most powerful HMI platform available for Windows™ CE today, entirely capable of satisfying your every need in visualization and control in a compact environment without forgoing the potentiality of the Scada system.
Movicon™ CE is a runtime engine with runs the same Movicon™ 11 XML projects. Your projects can therefore be run on your HMI device, in operator terminals, PDA, Palmtop PCs, Smartphones, mobile and Wireless Systems (Pocket PC and HPC2000), autonomously and independently, without needing client stations and other applications. In fact, your WinCE device can be the Server or Web Server itself, to other client stations. Movicon™ CE, installed on your WinCE device will therefore run projects created by your Movicon™11 platform: one project only, the same file, run on different platforms all made possible by the project’s XML structure. This means greater management simplicity, significant reductions in maintenance costs and maximum information transparency.
Movicon CE runtime features
Thanks to Movicon CE your Scada/HMI platform offers you the complete flexibility you need for any your visualization. Just one development studio for any supervision project, from Windows CE to Windows desktop (Win32/64).
XML based Projects
In terms of costs, having all you need in just one programming environment to develop your projects, means you save. And not only, the Movicon™ 11 XML structured projects allow you to run the same project file both in Windows™ Vista/XP and WinCE, without having to be compiled first.
Movicon™11 consents uploading and downloading of projects from and to devices, and remote debugging of projects run locally on the device.
The powerful Movicon™ CE graphics management allows you to create HMI projects with great visual impact never graphically seen before and achievable within a few seconds with great ease and simplicity using the built-in and ready-to-use object libraries.
IP Camera Visualization
Movicon™ 11 has a viewer object for IP camera visualization, which can be inserted in any screen and parameterized. This IP camera viewer object can also be used in WinCE™ panels for image distribution, and accessibility through the web.
Powerful Alarm Management
The Alarms consent to powerful solutions, with visualization and Historical logging completely customizable. The Movicon™ CE Alarms also support the 4 standard operating states (ON, OFF, ACK, RST) according to the ISA S-18 normative, but they can be customized in the way they work (events, colors, representations) and given custom help and set with conditioned events. The Alarms’ historical Log, recycled files, support filters and can be arranged into different order bys. Movicon™ CE also integrates the alarm notification system by SMS and E-mail.
Movicon™ CE has numerous communication drivers for communicating with all the most popular PLCs and simultaneously. The serial and network communications support wireless connectivity (ie. Wi-Fi or Bluetooth), ideal for mobile devices. The OPC technology is supported as OPC Client.
Historicals, DataLoggers and Recipes on DB
The Movicon™ CE historicals consent to recording and storing data and recipes in text files (.dat, .xml or crypted files) with the IMDB technology (InMemory DB), and in Relational DBs (MsSQL CE). When opting to use a Relational DB, Movicon™ will automatically convert the Desktop project’s connections to ADOCE connections in the target. In this way historicals can still be recorded in the Relational DB and integrated with business information systems (ie. SQL Server). Movicon™ 11 introduces support to the new Ms SQL CE 3.0, which offers many advantages in Data integration and synchronization with the Ms SQL Server 2005.
Integrated VBA and PLC Logic
Movicon™ CE offers an exclusive advantage in supporting total VBA power (Visual Basic for Application comp.) in Windows CE as well. Movicon is the only Scada/HMI product that can guarantee VBA code syntax storage in your WinCE device too. So you can forget VB Script limits and slowness. With Movicon™ CE you can keep VBA code intact, with an even greater advantage of keeping the project intact no matter what platform you use.
Just as for desktop, the Movicon™ CE version also offers the option to use IL logic tasks (PLC type AWL language) and permits you to exploit the WinCE realtime characteristics to obtain I/O control, almost like a true PLC.
