ICONICS, the Microsoft® 2012 Sustainability Partner of the Year and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, announces its new version 10.8 of GENESIS64® and MobileHMI® HMI/SCADA, Energy AnalytiX® and FDDWorX® (Fault Detection and Diagnostics) software solutions. Designed and certified for Windows 8, Windows 8 apps and Windows 2012 Server operating systems, ICONICS fully supports and delivers solutions that take maximum advantage of these new Microsoft operating systems.
ICONICS solutions are based on industry standards such as OPC-UA, OPC, SNMP and Modbus. ICONICS was the first to deliver integrated OPC-UA compliance, a growing trend in Oil and Gas remote connectivity. This interoperability, coupled with the capability to define advanced visualizations or dashboards on the Windows 8 Phone and Microsoft Surface devices, brings new opportunities for users, systems integrators and OEMs.
ICONICS CEO and President Russ Agrusa stated, “Our solutions take advantage of the new Windows 8 live tiles, multi-touch and new user experiences and bring these capabilities to our Oil and Gas customers. The MobileHMI app for Microsoft Surface devices, for example, brings a rich visualization experience for viewing oil field production parameters and statistics, maintenance work orders and maintenance reference information, all from a simple tablet. ICONICS is proud to be one of the first with Microsoft Surface device solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry.
Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system, coupled with ICONICS MobileHMI app, is breaking down the barriers between the Operations Control room, the maintenance shop, the executive suite and field operations personnel. In some cases, it is removing the need for a control center altogether. It is now possible to integrate, operate and optimize operations, from any device, any time and from anywhere.
“ICONICS has proven that Windows 8 delivers the responsiveness and robustness needed for critical operations," said John Richards, Senior Director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft Corp. "Oil and Gas operators and supervisors no longer need to be tethered to the control room, and executives are now virtually a touch away from real-time production KPIs, independent of their travel schedules."
Users can visualize current field production or pipeline availability from any Windows 8 device with dazzling, fully animated graphics and extensive charts and trends and can respond to alarms and alerts in real time. They can utilize natural multi-touch gestures to pan through their producing fields, or scan their collection pipeline and pumping stations. ICONICS MobileHMI allows supervisors to achieve instant, one-touch access to operational conditions of concern or KPIs of interest such as current production compared to plans. Integration with the Windows 8 Charm bar allows users to change settings and search the application. With MobileHMI, users are made immediately aware of critical alerts (notifications) that are delivered to mobile devices and displayed on the Start screen via the MobileHMI live tile.
