TrulyMobile SCADA

TrulyMobile Scada is a first-in-class solution for securely accessing automation data via any smartphone.  More than just your live numbers, TrulyMobile Scada accesses your alarm, historical as well as relational database data to bring you the most integrated scalable mobile offering on the market.  Whether you have a large DCS or Scada system or just a single device behind an OPC server, TrulyMobile Scada brings your process to you wherever you may be.

Data in the automation industry has traditionally been accessed via control room HMI systems and, more recently, web-browser based access.  Browser-based access, however, is usually just a wrapper for the control room HMI, which in most cases makes viewing on a mobile phone  impractical.  The pages are too big for a mobile display and can be very slow to load.  For a large proportion of workers in these industries, these solutions do not reflect the truly mobile nature of their job duties.  In a world where the bottom line means everything, having secure instantaneous access to operational data is the only way to achieve this.

TrulyMobile Scada allows you to be proactive when it comes to managing your process by bringing the process directly to you.  Time savings always translate directly into cost savings and that is what TrulyMobile Scada offers you.

OPC is a software communication interface designed specifically for accessing real-time, historical and alarm data via open standards.  TrulyMobile Scada (TMS) offers a unified front to all of your different automation systems data via this interface.  However, TMS does much more than that.  TMS is the premier product in the OPC client space in that it utilizes the OPC specifications as they were intended to be used -- full data and alarm integration to bring you the clearest picture of your process.

The TMS smartphone client was implemented using the most cutting-edge web technologies available.  All that is required to access a TMS server is an HTML5 enabled web browser.  HTTPS authentication can be enabled to secure your data from prying eyes.  No more app store upgrades.  You always receive the latest version at the time you connect.

TrulyMobile Scada is implemented in a client-server model.  All configuration is performed on the server to which the clients connect and make requests.  A mobile client has no direct access to a data source whether it be PLC or OPC; therefore, what they can see and do is entirely in your control.  Only people with an understanding of your automation system should be granted permission to configure a TrulyMobile Scada system.

Building a TrulyMobile Scada application is simple to do with its intuitive HMI and extensive help documentation.  Copy, paste, drag-and-drop -- it’s all there to make your life easy.  Templating allows you to very rapidly test and deploy a large number of displays in a cost-effective manner.  If your system allows it, you can create a database connector to your automation systems database and generate your template displays via SQL queries!  You can tie the configuration directly to an external database!  Update it with a double-click of the mouse!  This is a very powerful concept which can significantly reduce implementation and maintenance costs.
