SOFTWARE

The software is based on a client / server philosophy. Real time and historical data are stored in an Oracle database, easily accessible by other systems. Data may be stored in dedicated history files for long term data storage, on formats suitable for further offline processing. The software will normally run on servers using Windows Server OS. The servers may be dedicated ones, or a virtual server in a company server cluster.

General purpose and dedicated User Displays are available. Data from various platforms available on the same LAN may be accessed by the same User Display software.
