ICONICS launches next generation of GENESIS64

Plant visualization package is OPC/UA, Microsoft compatable

10/16/2008


ICONICS announced its Version 10.5 of the GENESIS64 64-bit-optimized, Web-enabled, OPC-integrated HMI/SCADA suite at the ISA Conference in Houston.

Designed utilizing OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and 64-bit multi-core hardware platforms, the GENESIS64 suite includes several modular solutions that simplify connectivity from the plant floor to corporate business systems. Certified for Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, .NET and SharePoint technology, it allows plant operators and IT professionals to integrate real-time manufacturing and business information into a common, Web-enabled visualization dashboard. The GENESIS64 suite is comprised of GraphWorX64, TrendWorX64, AlarmWorX64, EarthWorX and the Workbench Web-based development, deployment and operations products.

ICONICS GENESIS64 V10.5 incorporates new Microsoft Silverlight cloud services technology, providing “a cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device capability delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.

%APS%%s rich Web-friendly graphics, alarm management and trend charting functionality. Certification for Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, .NET, SharePoint and other technologies assists ICONICS in helping customers to better visualize their business applications.”

“ICONICS is well-known as a proponent of Microsoft and for integrating Microsoft technologies within its products such as GENESIS64”, said Craig Resnick, research director at ARC Advisory Group. “ARC expects that ICONICS will fully leverage the capabilities of the latest Microsoft products such as Silverlight to address the trend, being deployed by many successful manufacturers, of using real-time visualization solutions to ensure that any problems are exposed as they occur on the plant floor. This is a welcome trend to workers on the plant floor, especially when they are empowered to stop the manufacturing process and fix the problems as they occur to get the product quality right the first time, which is one of the primary benefits of real-time industrial automation.”

Annual Salary Survey

After two years of economic concerns, manufacturing leaders once again have homed in on the single biggest issue facing their operations:

It's the workers—or more specifically, the lack of workers.

The 2017 Plant Engineering Salary Survey looks at not just what plant managers make, but what they think. As they look across their plants today, plant managers say they don’t have the operational depth to take on the new technologies and new challenges of global manufacturing.
