AVEVA Plant SCADA introduces Industrial Graphics to already excellent graphics capabilities

AVEVA Industrial Graphics provides a new thin client solution for the delivery of HTML5 graphics to desktop browsers and mobile devices. This consists of a new modern graphics editor, new graphics technology, and new web client runtime experience offering HTML5 visualization; all available alongside the existing Graphics Builder editor, legacy Graphics format, and high-performance desktop runtime.

Improved Connectivity (IPv6, OPC-UA Server)

In Plant SCADA 2020 R2, IPv6 addresses are supported throughout the configuration, including PC Network Addresses, I/O Devices (for supported drivers), Servers and Clients. In addition, Plant SCADA supports native OPC-UA server functionality to share your plant data throughout your organization.

Security Enhancements

  • Reduced permissions for running Plant SCADA with support for running under Virtual Service Accounts
  • User Groups now able to restrict access to configuration files (including those on deployment server/client), as well as access to the Plant SCADA configuration tools
  • Enhanced IT management with support for mapping of security groups to Windows Domain groups including security configuration for Deployment, support for Domain groups within Local groups, and support for authentication of Windows users through CtAPI (so you don’t have to manage local users)
