Switch2Citect Launches Globally

September 192005
Sydney, Australia – Citect, one of the world’s largest, independent real-time intelligence software companies, today launched its new Switch2Citect product at the Oceania User Conference. Switch2Citect is a conversion tool for SCADA customers that allows them to convert from one or multiple legacy systems to the world-class CitectSCADA with minimal configuration costs, time and effort. Switch2Citect provides upgrades from InTouch, Fix32, iFix, FactoryLink and the company will announce plans to release more upgrade paths later this month.

“Switch2Citect has been designed to enable customers to improve the performance and increase the longevity of their plants by switching to CitectSCADA”, said Stephen Flannigan, General Manager, CitectSCADA. “Not only does it cost little more than if the customer upgraded using their existing SCADA system, but it is less expensive to run, operate and maintain and gives them access to the latest technologies”.

Switch2Citect is being used in a number of pilot projects including the roll out by a leading Australian mining company at 4 of its coal mines, replacing Fix32 and iFix. In Hungary, Citect System Integrator, Szoft Duo is using it to convert InTouch to CitectSCADA systems at one of Endrod’s major gas pipelines.

“Switch2Citect provides a simple and easy solution for upgrading legacy control systems”, said Tuska Pál, Managing Director, Szoft Duó Ltd.

“The benefit to us as a system integrator is the large reduction in time and cost in implementing a new control system. By using Switch2Citect style sheets, we can reduce engineering of a typical conversion by two-thirds”.

With its superior reliability, scalability, advanced features, global Support program and clear upgrade path, customers are choosing to standardize on CitectSCADA at one or all of their sites. Recent converts include a leading, global PC manufacturer in the US in a project involving the replacement of 150 Intellution Fix32 licenses to CitectSCADA V6 and the conversion of 13,000 graphics pages. Blue-chip pharmaceutical and steel companies in Australia, and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Utilities in South Africa are also undergoing projects to standardize on CitectSCADA.
