Key features of Citect SCADA include…

Context-aware workspace

A dedicated out-of-the-box Situational Awareness Workspace provides flexible, consistent, and rich context for operators, as well as a new way to build context-aware SCADA visualization. Meanwhile, the equipment-driven interface provides operators with real-time, holistic situational context to help improve efficiency and facilitate timely corrective action. Alarming, Trending, Interlocks and Control data are seamless integrated together in a single interface, across multiple monitors without the need for coding. This all helps to minimize visual distractions for operators, enabling timely decision making and helping to mitigate risk and operational downtime.

Comprehensive equipment library

Citect SCADA offers a wide selection of configurable symbols that follow industry best practice for Situational Awareness, including:

  • Drives
  • Valves
  • Meters
  • Data and UI elements
  • Mining objects
  • Polar star
  • Bar graph
  • Wind compass

Its symbol library significantly reduces time building graphics while giving the flexibility to customize objects to suit your unique needs. Improvements have also been made in the graphic system and new workspace concept, substantially reducing the time it takes to build complex layouts. Pinned windows, named animations, and animated polyline vertices also all help to simplify the engineering experience.

Enhanced alarm management

In-built navigation zone within Workspace provides an instant visual alarm summary. It has immediate focus to abnormal situations, showing the highest priority alarm for a piece of equipment. Alarm indicators quickly draw operators’ attention and help locate the source of anomalies and associated severity. Alarm shelving also allows you to temporarily silence alarms for a specific duration or until a specified time, with the ability to re-shelve as needed.

Seamless integration

The latest release of Citect SCADA offers native connectivity with our industrial software suite and tight application integration with third-party hardware and software offerings, helping to unlock and extend the value of our customers’ SCADA systems.

Mobile access

Citect Anywhere is a mobile extension of Citect SCADA that provides unprecedented real-time access to Citect applications via HTML5-compliant web browsers. Citect Anywhere enables visualization, collaboration and execution at various levels of the organization with zero client installation and maintenance, enabling users to securely troubleshoot plant equipment from any location, on any device, at any time.
