Software for SCADA, HMI projects
AutomationDirect's Point of View software is designed to developed SCADA, HMI, and OEE projects and supports three types of remote application viewers and has 19 communications drivers.
AutomationDirect's Point of View is software for developing SCADA, HMI, and OEE/Dashboard projects that can be deployed anywhere. Designed for most Windows supported platforms, including Windows XP, 7, 8 and Server editions, Point of View projects can either run locally on a development workstation or be downloaded to a remote workstation to operate using Point of View runtime software.
A project tag database manages all runtime data, including both internal variables and scanned I/O. Configurable drivers communicate in real time with programmable logic controllers, remote I/O devices, and other data acquisition equipment. Animated HMI screens and OEE dashboards give plant personnel a graphical view of the process. Integrated modules include alarms, events, trends, recipes, reports, scriptable logic, schedulers, a security system, and a complete database interface.
Point of View software supports three types of remote application viewers: a dedicated viewer for plant-floor operations, where navigation must be restricted to specific HMI/SCADA applications; a Microsoft Internet Explorer-based browser that enables full access to any authorized IP address or applications and a Studio Mobile Access viewer that works with any browser. Up to 48 simultaneous viewing clients of each type are supported.
The Point of View SCADA/HMI software contains 19 communications drivers for connection to many industrial controllers from AutomationDirect as well as other models.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
