iFIX 5.8R2 is here!
The latest release of iFIX offers new productivity tools, Web HMI functionality and model-based development

iFIX 5.8R2 opens up new ways of developing and deploying operational information. With the growing numbers and changing roles of operational data "consumers", HMI/SCADA is moving beyond visualisation to become a decision support system. The latest release from GE Digital delivers on a number of fronts:

  • More rapid development capability thanks to productivity tools for navigation, and screen interaction that reduce the need for scripting
  • Libraries of "efficient HMI" objects designed for views that aid understanding
  • Model-based development to speed the creation of "digital twins" for assets and processes
  • HTML5-based web-HMI delivery of SCADA screens
  • Alarm notification via SMS

The new RX3i CPE400 - a key building block for Industrial Internet Control Systems
A secure, high-performance on-ramp to Industrial Internet applications
The promise of the Industrial Internet is huge - effectively tapping into asset data can be game-changing for asset owners, OEMs and field service organisations alike. To streamline the journey from traditional control to a world where cloud-delivered apps and analytics can be harmonised with individual assets control strategies, GE has released the PACSystemsTM RX3i CPE400. 

In a single compact footprint, you can deploy a familiar control engine, delivered alongside a secure, flexible data aggregation and integration toolkit - the Field Agent technology for GE's PredixTM platform. GE's Outcome Optimizing edge technology opens the door to allow the results of big data analytics to be incorporated into local apps and algorithms. So your process or asset can be that much "smarter" thanks to insight derived from similar assets or processes across your enterprise.

Quality – Word of many meanings… Root of many debates… (Part 1)
Time to throw down a gauntlet: We believe that most manufacturers over-emphasise final-product QA and testing programs. Why? Because it’s “easiest” to focus efforts on ensuring bad products aren’t shipped than it is to identify and engineer out causes of “quality issues”.
