Industrial Falcon for Visualization of Real-time, Cloud-Based Operations

Industrial Falcon for Visualization of Real-time, Cloud-Based Operations

Software Toolbox's Industrial Falcon eliminates the need for customers to maintain Web servers, is highly scalable and allows access to multiple users without additional costs. The solution also provides a central repository for data where changes to a system or operation can be made and easily propagated to other users accessing the repository.

Industrial Falcon is a combination of two separate configuration components that enable customers to access live and historical process data from anywhere via an Internet connection. Industrial Falcon OPC Client is a cloud connector for OPC data using industry-standard OPC technology which enables users to access any OPC server that is collecting live process data. That data is then securely transferred to the Industrial Falcon Online Repository for secure storage. The Industrial Falcon Web Interface can be configured to direct how much and how often data is stored on the server. It provides HMI-type visualization of data that can be securely accessed anywhere via the Web.

The software accesses raw data from I/O sources and streams it to a Web server where a customer has the ability to configure Web pages to display data for trending or viewing purposes. Industrial Falcon also eliminates IT issues typically associated with exposing process data at external locations, such as opening TCP ports in the firewall and enabling remote access, all of which introduce potential security vulnerabilities.

Industrial Falcon provides simple controls for accessing and displaying raw data and features basic drag-and-drop controls for easy visualization of raw data values, charting and trending of accumulated historical data for data points. Industrial Falcon Online Repository allows customization for storage of historical data based on specific customer-selected variables. Users have the ability to create visualization pages for displaying live and/or historical data such as value displays, gauges and trends. Customers can monitor and record process settings when they change and display alarm conditions.
