EZSCADA Features & Benefits
SQL Server and Unlimited number of tags
EZSCADA is widely recognized as the easiest to design and implement SCADA. It has an SQL server module built-in and features unimited number of tags, saving 60 - 80% over any SCADA system in the market. Requires Single user license and one time development software additional.
Customized real-time reports
EZSCADA features real-time reports to view, monitor and control, generate and print. This feature is loved by one-n-all as it is very easy to create this customized real-time report.
Report and Historian Module
EZSCADA features a report and historian module to save history of any number of parameters being monitored by EZSCADA
SCADA HMI for Windows 7 & Windows 10 PCs
EZSCADA features the simplest HMI to implement. It has 17 unique features. This HMI runs on any Panel PC. It has unlimited number of tags and screens.
Patented HMI on-line edit, No downtime
All HMIs except for EZTouch, require the machine or process to be shut down to make a change in the HMI program. While a new program is being uploaded to the HMI, it is non-functional and hence the machine can’t be allowed to operate during this time. Every time the HMI program is edited, there is machine down time of typically an hour. EZSCADA HMI has a patented on-line edit exceptionally innovative feature that allows the HMI program to be edited without the machine missing a beat.
In a recent study, more than 2/3rds of control engineers stated that after the HMI is installed in a machine or process, the plant user, system integrator or OEM requests some change in the screen design at least 10 times in the first 90 days following installation.
Even if you were able to make the change in
half-an-hour, machine/process will be down
by 0.5 hr. each time change is made. Taking
downtime at even a low cost of $1000/hr.,
the patented unique HMI online feature in EZSCADA HMI, saves you at least $5000 in just
first 3 months of operation.
Communication interface to practically all PLC Serial and EtherNet protocols.
EZSCADA HMI can communicate to any PLC over a serial link or on Ethernet. The Panel PC for EZSCADA HMI must have serial (485) and Ethernet ports. Examples are: DH485, Modbus, EZPLC, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, GE SRTP, Siemens ISO and many others.
Note: We recommend use of EZPanel PC with EZSCADA HMI preloaded that has both serial and ethernet ports.
Tiny EZminiWifi installed on the EZSCADA panel allows Laptop to program EZSCADA from 50 ft. away. $49
This tiny little module that plugs into one of the serial ports in the EZSCADA panel (we recommend installing on every EZSCADA panel) allows a programmer to connect his/her laptop to the EZSCADA panel without a cable. So many times, it is not so easy to reach the Operator console to connect the programming cable to the EZSCADA panel. Combination of our patented On-Line Edit feature and EZminiWifi becomes an exceptionally innovative solution to making changes on EZSCADA screens without having to open up the control cabinet and connect the Programming cable.
Dual PLC Drivers with automatic tag conversion.
EZSCADA HMI panels have the capability to simultaneously talk to two PLC networks. For example, Ethernet I/P on one side and Modbus RTU on the other side. Tags are automatically converted. This allows the two networks to communicate to each other through EZSCADA HMI.
Best looking objects and animation with 65K colors.
EZSCADA HMIs have the best looking objects simulating real life panel actuators and indicators. And the animation of process is great.
Unicode for multiple languages.
All EZSCADA HMIs have a Unicode feature for multiple languages, that is each Object can be displayed in different languages. This allows every operator of the EZSCADA HMI to be able to communicate to it in the language of his or her choice.
Easiest Programming software, design time in hrs not days.
There is a reason why our company is called EZAutomation and our EZSCADA HMI is called EZTouch. We make it so easy to learn our programming language that no user, hundreds of thousands so far, thank you, ever had to attend any class to learn the programming. Most of our competitor’s products, like from Rockwell, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Unitronics, Schneider, Maple and others require a 3-5 day class to learn how to program their products. Our programming language is so intuitive and so simple that the design time for any screen and the entire project is reduced to hours instead of days.
Full Project simulation on your PC.
EZSCADA development software allows you to preview and test your entire project by our Project simulation feature on your PC itself before loading it up in your EZSCADA HMI panel. It’s a great time saver for programmers.
“C level” scripting and logic expressions.
This unique feature in EZSCADA HMI panels products off loads a very substantial burden on the PLC and reduces PLC scan time, number of rungs, and size of memory, as these calculations can be done essentially off-line in EZSCADA HMI.
Data-logging, Recipes, Emails, USBs. Free Chart recorder.
EZSCADA HMI panels can store HMI/PLC data on USB or micro SD card and remotely retrieve this data real-time over Internet using AVG File Manager. The USB drive or the micro SD serves as a free chart recoder saving the cost of an external chart recorder costing hundereds of thousands of dollars.
Most advanced Alarm management and logging.
*New Feature: EZSCADA HMI now provides an Alarm database, Alarm preview, Alarm history, Alarm count, Alarm protection and a special feature to send Alarm directly to EZMarquee. It also allows for the EZSCADA HMI to email or text alarm messages.
EZSCADA HMIs in a plant or multiple plants, have the capability of getting monitored by using EZPlantview software allowing all critical parameters to be collected and displayed in the individual EZSCADA HMI which can be viewed on one or multiple large screens in a control room.
On-Screen Recipe Edit.
EZSCADA HMIs feature an on-screen recipe edit where you can edit the recipe on the EZSCADA HMI itself without needing to connect to a laptop with development software.
Remote Monitoring and Control, Smart phones & Ethernet.
All EZSCADA HMIs have a remote monitoring and control feature where you can monitor and control the functionality of an HMI remotely via a Smart phone with iOS or Android OS. RMC can also be done over Ethernet connection in all EZSCADA HMIs.
Unique Visibility tag for best screen space utilization.
EZSCADA HMIs have an extremely innovative Visibility tag on all objects. Object appears on the screen only if the visibility tag is true. Along with EZSCADA HMI's feature of overlapping objects, visibility tag is a great space saver on the screen.
Pass-through programming for all PLCs.
All EZSCADA HMIs allow pass-through programming of any device connected to the EZSCADA HMI, whether it is a PLC, PAC or a Drive. PLC Programming software of any make, for example Rockwell can pass through the same programming port as the EZSCADA panel making it very convenient to program the whole control system through just one port/connection.
