Sielco Sistemi is pleased to announce that the new version 3.02 of SCADA software Winlog Pro is now available.
New version 3.02 allows you to develop Web Server applications that can be accessed by Internet Clients with a simple browser. Two different solutions are provided: Web Client solution to access the Server from fix devices supporting Java technology, and Smart Client solution to access the Server from mobile devices such as Smartphones and Tablets equipped with iOS, Android or Windows Phone.
Winlog Web Client allows you to connect to a Winlog Server application from any device which supports Java technology and is equipped with a web browser. By this way you can monitor and control remote plants and production processes, thus resulting in a dramatic reduction of maintenance costs. Winlog Web Server takes advantage of the characteristics of Java language to provide an encrypted TCP link between remote Internet Clients and a Winlog Server. Thanks to the Java Web Start technology, the remote user can access to plant information by simply linking to the Winlog Web Server installed on the main supervisory station (Server). By entering the specific address (IP or hostname) into the address bar of a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome...), you will see the home page from which to request the download and automatic launch of the Winlog Web Client application.
A special development tool allows you to turn a Winlog application into a Winlog Web Server application and to create a Winlog Web Client application that can access the Server. Data from the Server can be displayed and set through a subset of graphical objects including Frame, Group Box, Label, Button, UpDown, Edit Box, BkBitmap, Bitmap, Switch, Check Box, Radio Button, Combo Box, Led, Gauge, StatusBar, Chart, Historical Alarm/Event View. Several Clients can connect simultaneously to the same Server. From Winlog Server you can define which users are allowed to access (with username and password) via Web Client and assign to each of them the proper access level. The Java Client application ensures a continuous update of data read from the Server throughout the whole observation period. CSV and PDF reports created by Winlog Pro can be deployed in a special folder in the HTTP Server public area and then downloaded by remote browsers.
Smart App Builder is the visual development tool for the quick creation of web applications (Smart Apps) that allow mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Phone) to interact with the Server application, in order to monitor and modify the variable values of the supervisory process (SCADA). The structure of a Smart App consists of a menu composed of categories (eg. physical or logical groupings) and their items and sub-items which include process variables; browsing through the items is similar to that provided by all popular mobile devices. Several Clients can simultaneously connect to the same Server. From Winlog Server you can define which users are allowed to access (with username and password) via Smart Client and assign to each of them the proper access level. CSV and PDF reports created by Winlog Pro can be deployed in a special folder in the HTTP Server public area and then downloaded by remote browsers.

Realistic rendering of panel instrumentation provides remote users with an instant check of the variables to monitor. For this purpose we have introduced in our Winlog Pro SCADA software the popular library of animated graphic objects Industrial Gadgets ActiveX Basic Edition with lots of animated digital (buttons, switches, leds) and numeric objects (pointer indicators, potentiometrs, led displays).
Sielco Sistemi is pleased to announce that the new version 3.01 of SCADA software Winlog Pro is now available. The new version represents a real revolution in terms of look, functionality and performance.
We have re-designed the whole SCADA software platform to take advantage of new technologies, while maintaining the original robustness and reliability and ensuring the almost complete compatibility with previously developed applications.
The product has a more up-to-date and appealing look; all icons are in Pure Flat 2013 style and access to various functions and development tools is now more easy and intuitive.
We have revised all development tools, in order to increase performance and make it easier to use. A special effort was made to improve graphics, increasing the number of supported formats (JPG, PNG, GIF, …), enhancing transparency options, making it smoother motion graphics.
In addition to the graphic library Symbol Factory, development tools include the popular libraries of animated graphic objects Industrial Gadgets ActiveX Basic Edition and Industrial Gadgets ActiveX PRO Edition, with lots of animated objects digital (buttons, switches, leds), numeric (pointer indicators, potentiometrs, led displays) and complex (motors, pumps, valves, tanks, pipes).
All communication drivers have been revised, in order to uniform the configuration of the various protocols. New communication protocols were also included, such as M-Bus protocol and Mitsubishi MELSEC.
Version 3.01 makes available remote control via TeamViewer technology. By a simple “click” on the icon “Quick Support”, the user will allow the Sielco Sistemi support team to provide remote control and technical assistance through Internet.
Winlog Pro now includes a new web server support which conforms the graphical object properties to those of the standard version and provides a more fast and safe data exchange between client and server. Clients can access the server via new passwords for sending commands and write data. Web server support is now available with the free demo version of Winlog Lite.
Finally it should be noted that version 3.01 of SCADA software Winlog Pro makes it available new and even more convenient development and runtime licenses.
The Sielco Sistemi website has been completely renewed in graphics and contents. The new website features a modern and attractive layout with a mobile responsive design.
Sielco Sistemi was created from the original group that in the early '90 has developed the software package for automation Winlog and now is offering its renewed and enhanced version Winlog Pro. Our mission is to promote the diffusion of the SCADA software Winlog Pro all over the world through the continuous updating and enrichment of the product, the close cooperation with our customers and Solution Providers and the expansion and strengthening of our distribution network. In addition to Winlog Pro SCADA software, we offer a range of industrial Panel PCs (PClog) and a Data Acquisition System (IOlog). Sielco Sistemi also offers itself as a partner for the development of applications and the implementation of integrated hardware/software solutions.
