iFIX 5.8R2 is here!

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


Click through to learn more about iFIX 5.8R2 and how it works with the broader GE digital suite to help companies along their Industrial Internet journey.
