iPhone app supervises variables and memory of PLCs and RTUs

SweetWilliam, S.L., based in Catalonia, creates various versions of ScadaMobile besides the regular, full-featured version, including ScadaMobile Lite and ScadaMobile ONE.

ScadaMobile is suited for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It is a simple HMI/SCADA application for supervising variables and memory of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Remote Terminal Units (RTUs).

This app is suited for plant engineers, PLC software developers, maintenance people, and anyone dealing with PLC based systems. It is compatible with major US and Japanese PLC brands and can be used as a wireless local or remote HMI.

Additionally, it supports Omron PLCs, Modbus/TCP and Ethernet/IP protocols.

ScadaMobile is highly configurable, and OEMs can offer it as an extension to their systems. It supports simultaneous connections to a number of remote PLCs and RTUs, and includes automation features which make it easy to organise large numbers of tags.

To connect to PLCs, ScadaMobile uses direct TCP/IP links between the iOS devices and the PLCs. Users enter the IP address of the PLC to establish a connection. Passwords, encryption and tunnelling options contribute to the security of the app.

An evaluation version of ScadaMobile, called ScadaMobile Lite, is available at a low price. It is limited to a maximum of 4 process variables and does not support alarms.

A free exploratory version, ScadaMobile ONE, allows users to explore the main features of the regular ScadaMobile app through several preloaded examples. It is limited to 1 PLC tag, but has no limit on the number of internal tags. It can be used to create and test projects by using local tags that can be later upgraded to real PLC tags on the regular version. The free app can also be used to test Communications with the target PLC or RTU, to ensure compatibility with the regular version.

Full version: US$74.99
Lite: US$2.99
ONE: Free
