Movicon.NExT 4.0 is the new industrial software platform that offers the most innovative and flexible technologies for Windows/Linux HMI projects, for SCADA supervisors and MES solutions, indispensable for industry 4.0.
Work is coming to an end after over a year’s commitment from the Progea R&D and Test & Validation departments to release the new Movicon.NExT 4.0 platform.
Their intense and important work has focused on the complete redesign of the Workspace user interface and the enhancement of the entire platform and its powerful features to enable greater user-friendliness. The evolution path of the most innovative SCADA/HMI/MES technology on the market continues to progress by responding to feedback received from developer users whose main concern is to have intuitive and fast performing tools to help them reduce development times working with Movicon.NExT even more.
In addition, the introduction of the Movicon WebHMI, included with the 4.0 release, has added to the simplification of the design environment to consent the less expert user to create small HMI applications, using the same design environment.
The evolution of SCADA, HMI, MES software
Even though at first sight, nothing seems to have changed, the new platform has in fact been redesigned in its entirety. Users who are now trying it out have come across countless changes all over and find it more natural, intuitive, simple and immediate to use. They have found that it also exceeds all the expectations of those companies that operate daily in the field and play a role in the important ecosystem of Progea System Integrators.
The new design engineering of the workspace took into account all its many different aspects by improving the use of the resources and their configurations and removing ribbons to give more space to better organized and intuitive contextual menus. Import, parameterization, use of properties, synchronization with server resources, functional windows, selection menus, smart properties, styles, wizards, data organization all contribute to making designing more intuitive. Furthermore, performances have been enhanced in general to the point where the structure of the communication drivers and their base classes have been entirely reviewed to make a significant improvement in communication performances, especially when under stress and handling big data.
It is also fully compatible with previous versions and upgrade to the new version is free of charge to thank those who have chosen and helped us make an evolutional improvement to our product with their feedback.
