Vijeo Citect SCADA Features & Services

Vijeo Citect is designed for control engineers, product managers and industrial
automated system integrators seeking simple configuration and high performance.
It provides multi-CPU support, a multi-project Find/Replace tool and integrated
XML Web service. Vijeo Citect uses the power of multi-CPU machines to offer
outstanding performance. The possibility of grouping servers from version Vijeo
Citect 7.0 enables easy adaptation of SCADA architecture to that of the
application for optimum performance. Highly-developed “Find/Replace” functions
enable searches in project graphic pages. The “Find” function can browse the
entire project structure, offering the user a unique search engine simplifying
configuration. Industry accepts use of XML Web services as interface between
different applications, and Vijeo Citect integrates a read-only Web interface.
This enables access to all data, alarms and trends, and simplifies integration
of Vijeo Citect in information systems.

Single data entry:

Application development time is signifi cantly reduced thanks to
SpeedLink software, which enables automatic creation of variables, alarms and
histories from Unity Pro applications.
In addition, Citect is compatible with Unity v2.3 Application Generator.

Added security:

Confi guration security of Vijeo Citect enables application of read-only
parameters to all or certain projects within a system. The read-only parameters
are based on Windows user or user group privileges to centralise access rights
management. Integrators or system producers can therefore lock all or certain
of their projects.

Vijeo Citect supports full hot standby configuration. By nominating
primary and standby PLCs, Vijeo Citect automatically connects to the active
device in case failure. Due to its built-in redundancy, Viject Citect provides
switches with no loss of functionality, or performance.
Advanced help:

Vijeo Citect online help includes easy access to information and its use
of “breadcrumb trails” simplifies navigation. Vijeo Historian is a powerful
factory-level reporting tool which collects, memorizes and produces reports
from different systems. Based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005, it is a true link
between production and the information system. Vijeo Historian offers
production managers and operators clear and relevant reports to assist decision
making. Data is directly accessible via optimization and management software
such as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Reporting Services. Based on recognized
standards, Vijeo Historian is easy to maintain.
