Rugged IPC Preconfigured with Proficy HMI/SCADA Software

Ask an Expert

SCADA Edge Industrial IPC combines GE’s award-winning Proficy HMI/SCADA software with its rugged Industrial PC platform to create a scalable, upgradable solution that collects, optimizes, and processes data from brilliant machines. By delivering visibility to the factory floor, the scalable and flexible SCADA Edge increases operator effectiveness and reduces downtime.

High Performance Computing

SCADA Edge is built on one of three compact and rugged industrial PC platforms for superior performance in demanding industrial automation environments. Customize the solution with a choice of dual or quad core processors and 4 or 8 GB storage capacity. SCADA Edge features special SSD drives, multiple Ethernet interfaces, and a number of expansion slots.

Unlimited Performance Insight

SCADA Edge is preconfigured with either Proficy HMI/SCADA CIMPLICITY or Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX software. The Proficy toolset provides real-time visibility and control to improve decision-making. These applications can scale from 500 to 5,000 tags, allowing the system to grow along with operations.

CIMPLICITY is used by many of the world’s largest manufacturers. It offers true client/server based visualization and control that helps manage operations, perform supervisory automation and deliver reliable information to higher-level analytic applications. With CIMPLICITY, operators and engineers have the power and secure-by-design technology to precisely monitor and control every aspect of their environment, equipment and resources.

Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX is designed for industrial automation and infrastructure applications. Used by thousands of organizations around the world, iFIX provides a robust SCADA engine, rich set of connectivity options, open architecture, and highly scalable and distributed networking model. iFIX serves in diverse industries and is ideally suited for many applications, ranging from common HMI as simple as manual data entry and validation to very complex SCADA such as batch, filtration and distributed alarm management. This best-in-class software also complies with industry standards, making it ideal as part of an IT-focused, real-time information management system.

Rugged and Upgradable

SCADA Edge is designed and built for maximum reliability and system uptime. It features a fanless, solid state design and industrial-strength components. The CPU and memory are soldered to the board, boosting reliability and resistance to shock and vibration. Patented heat dissipation technology allows SCADA Edge to perform in extreme temperature conditions.

COM Express architecture extends the useful life of SCADA Edge and allows for fast and easy updates without retooling. As technology evolves, only the COM Express module changes. The rest of the hardware, wiring, and footprint remain the same, lowering recertification costs and reducing total cost of ownership.
