The Progea Automation Platform Next is a unique solution for dispatching technological processes, created on the basis of the .NET technology, with a modular architecture, web integration, with scaling to any size enterprise. Movicon Next SCADA system was developed using .NET technology, which allows using the latest Microsoft tools: 64-bit architecture, VFS (Virtual File System), Azure, WPF / XAML vector graphics. Movicon Next has a completely updated graphical interface based on WPF / XAML vector technology. Movicon Next is equipped with a large number of communication drivers. The communication base is based on OPC UA technology, which provides fast and reliable data exchange with technological devices.
This modular and open platform will empower automation professionals as the perfect solution for Supervision, HMI, Control, Historian, MES and industrial Analysis. The Movicon.NExT™ project has been engineered to overcome the restricted use of conventional SCADA/HMI technology. Based on the most modern technological solutions, it creates the foundation for a long-term investment without compromise.
Movicon.NExT is based on the Automation Platform.NexT modular platform and offers an open and modular .NET framework. It has a rich suite of functional modules to ensure open, powerful and expandable projects.
Scalable and Modular:
Movicon.NExT™ has been designed to ensure maximum scalability offering an all-inclusive configuration environment for modular solutions that integrate with the platform in the most simple and flexible way possible. The scalable Movicon.NExT™ architecture is designed to save time and costs offering unlimited ways of deployment. The Movicon.NExT™ technology is based on the “Plug-In” concepts to offer maximum system interoperability to the extent that new functional modules can be integrated in the Progea Framework to allow users to completely customize their .NET solutions as needed.
Movicon.NExT offers a totally integrated, innovative and snazzy development environment that comes with a rich set of intuitive features. The platform is entirely based on modern technology that reduces development time in creating projects in respect to the technology used in pre-existing solutions. This is done by using wizards and templates, unprecedented symbol libraries and toolbox offering top graphical quality and reusability. Functions are modularity concept-driven to allow users to externally create and implement functional plug-in modules that totally integrate with the platform.
Conforms to Standards:
The Movicon.NExT™ software technology is entirely based on standards deriving from openness and reliability. The XAML and WPF technology ensure the most effective and modern graphics standard, the historian technology is based on Ms SQL Server and Azure that support any Relational DB in the most transparent way using the ADO Provider (supports MySQL and Oracle).
The project files are based on the XML standard or the SQL DB standard. The powerful language is based on the standard VB.NET syntax. Communication is OPC UA-based and includes a great selection of integrated communication protocols. Access over the web is HTML5-based. All provided with the best technology standards around.
HTML5 Web Client:
Movicon.NExT is a platform that makes the factory access over the web an unprecedented reference point. Creating Web-enabled projects is extremely simple and effective thanks to the Web Server module that uses the HTML5 technology to ensure maximum portability across different platforms and operating systems made possible by the standard, top performance and graphics. APPs are also available for smartphone and table devices for Android, iOS and Windows Universal App.
Performances and Reliability:
Movicon.NExT pays particular attention to managing performances. Fast communication and real-time data management, graphics optimization with full use of graphics accelerators and Direct X all ensure technology at its best without sacrificing performances.
