ADVERTORIAL TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION Product review: new iFIX v5.9 SCADA release


GE Digital has now launched their fourth generation SCADA/HMI product iFIX v5.9, which promises to enable smart operators to increase efficiency and reduce costs


PICMG 1.3 Full-size CPU Card Powered by 7th/6th Gen Intel Xeon/Core Processors


I


BASE, a manufacturer of application specific industrial embedded computing platforms, launches its new IB990 PICMG 1.3 full-size CPU card. The board supports the latest 7th/6th Generation Intel Xeon®/Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors with speeds up to 4.0GHz. Based on the chipset family formerly known as Skylake, Intel® C236 and Q170 Express chipsets, the high-performance IB990 SBC is built with two DIMM sockets to support DDR4 2133 MHz memory modules with up to 32GB in total and six superfast SATA III ports featuring RAID 0/1/5/10 and 6 Gb/s speed. As an ideal solution for control systems in factory


automation and other industrial applications, the IB990 is designed for data and graphic intensive applications and enables up to three independent displays via DVI-I, VGA and DVI-D interface. This long-life single board computer incorporates a rich set of I/O connectivity including two Gigabit Ethernet, four COM, two USB 2.0 and three USB 3.0 ports, plus a Mini PCI-E expansion socket for optional wireless modules. Additionally, the IB990 takes advantage of Intel® AMT 11.0 for remote management and powering- on functionalities. IB990 comes in two models: IB990AF-C236 with C236 / 6x


SATAIII and IB990AF with Q170 / 4x SATA III / TPM 1.2. IBASE also provides PICMG 1.3 backplanes compatible with the IB990.

vast reams of data, hampering decision making. The asset model available with iFIX v5.9 really sets this version apart from previous


T


SCADA products. Although monitoring, visualisation and alarms continue to be an important part of SCADA, the additional context provided by a detailed asset model can give operators the edge to optimise processes and drive even better results.


Astec Technical Director Chris Barlow comments, “We use a standards-based user interface approach for every project, so clients can benefit from improved


navigation and decision making. Some operators may have a tendency to feel ‘comfortable’ with older style graphics, where everything is squeezed onto a single screen, but we would recommend the drill-down structure of the latest iFIX, which offers a far superior performance. The essence of iFIX v5.9 centres around the asset modelling. This provides plant-level context for improved diagnosis of abnormal situations. Operators are able to take immediate action on the move, with a consistent level of response every time. The asset-centric screens guide users towards only relevant information - which really is the future of SCADA.”

he intuitive interface is designed for operators to quickly interpret relevant data and take the appropriate action. This is in contrast to older systems, which typically display
