Citect HMI/SCADA Basic Configuration

Citect is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) / Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) platform that is similar in nature to Wonderware. Citect actually beat Wonderware to some features that were added to Wonderware 10. Most notably, the ability to drill down into a symbol to modify attributes. It is also a system that allows for a selection of programming languages to be used in the development of displays. The training for this system was perhaps the best class I have ever taken since college. There were in depth discussions on security as well as hands on use of the system. I am not going to do a full “Review” on this system nor give a complete comparison between this and Wonderware, though I will be willing to recommend this as a package to use as a competitive bid against Wonderware. I hope to be able to work with it again.
