PcVue Smart Generator Addresses Newly Reported 2012 SCADA Issues and Safeguards FactoryLink Users' Existing Configurations

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - PcVue, a subsidiary of ARC Informatique and automation solution provider of award winning HMI/ SCADA software, supports FactoryLink users with its SCADA application builder tool called Smart Generator.

Thanks to a past collaboration, the FactoryLink graphic editor, Client Builder, comprises the same technologies with PcVue HMI/SCADA software, which means the transition to PcVue HMI/SCADA is not only easy but also will provide FactoryLink users access to improved and new features, quickly and practically effortlessly.

This is a great opportunity for FactoryLink users to port their applications to a more secure and robust SCADA infrastructure with improved capabilities. To minimize any chance of a malfunction, cyber-attack or any potential issues, it is critical to organizations that they rely on continually supported products that are regularly updated and constantly improved upon especially when it comes to SCADA applications.

SmartGenerator is able to offer FactoryLink users the most secure and reliable way to safeguard their existing applications, reuse already configured FactoryLink graphics, tag databases, and object libraries with ease. The Smart Generator gives FactoryLink customer peace of mind, saves development time and reduces the total cost of ownership. FactoryLink savvy System Integrators don't need retraining on the SCADA because approximately 70% of PcVue will already be familiar to them, but they will benefit from more flexible capabilities and find it much more intuitive and easier to develop applications using PcVue.

FactoryLink customers can keep existing relationships with their hardware providers intact because PcVue is hardware independent and works with hundreds of PLC brands/models. Additionally users will reduce the time and cost of upgrading while benefiting from newer scaleable technology with more functionalities.

"Through my previous experience having worked as a FactoryLink Distributor, I was impressed at how easy and seamless it was to migrate over to PcVue using Smart Generator. I also recognized quite quickly how much more flexible, scaleable and robust that PcVue proved to be, which is likely because of the continual development and added functionality of advanced capabilities," said Dan Pflumm, President of DanCo systems Inc.

Using the Smart Generator, customers can import PLC and CAD configurations -- eliminating any repetitious work. Not limited to homogeneous automation environments, imports can be complemented in a fully documented XML format.
