Innovative Technology

Innovative Technology

The patented technology of AggreGate IoT Platform introduces many innovations in the industrial automation domain. The system core has integrated support for a home-grown device data normalization method, two-way device synchronization which substitutes simple polling, device data caching, and other advanced operations.

Linux SCADA

Linux SCADA

AggreGate is a cross-platform SCADA system which can be installed on Linux servers and even under Mac OS X. The system preserves 100% of its functionality when working under non-Windows operating systems. It can also communicate with Windows-based OPC servers via network using DCOM technology.

Wide Protocol Support

Wide Protocol Support

AggreGate SCADA/HMI supports most widespread industrial control protocols out-of-the-box, including Modbus, OPC, BACnet, SNMP, and many more. Drivers for PLCs which use other protocols can be easily designed using an open-source Driver Development Kit (DDK).

Alarming and Event Processing

Alarming and Event Processing

Advanced expression-based alerting with hysteresis (deadband) support. Event correlation and value flapping detection. Alert acknowledgment and escalation rules. E-mail, SMS, popup, sound, and other notifications. Automatic and interactive corrective actions. Flexible event processing chains and long-term storage.

Visual HMI Builder

Visual HMI Builder

The integrated HMI Builder supports combining grid and absolute layouts inside different containers within one widget, allowing to build very complex equipment control screens. More than 100 component types are supported, including container components, such as Tabbed Pane or Split Pane.

Charting and Trending

Charting and Trending

Dynamic chart library supports more than 25 chart types, exposing thousands of configurable parameters for setting up axes, series renderers, legends, titles, gridlines, crosshairs, etc. Trend of different types can be added, including linear, exponential, moving average or percentile.

Statistical Process Control

Statistical Process Control

AggreGate SCADA can store long-term time series data in a round-robin database (RRD) providing extremely compact storage and fast access to historical values. Never seen in other SCADA systems, this feature can help with deep data analysis, such as triggering an alert when a daily channel average significantly exceeds its yearly average.

Live Project Editing

Live Project Editing

Unlike traditional SCADAs, AggreGate has no difference between development and runtime environments, and no "projects". All development and administrative operations are performed remotely on a production server via secure network connections. Simulation devices, change history tracking, database backups and optional failover servers keep operations safe.

Scripting and Querying

Scripting and Querying

Despite the system is tailored for visual operations, it has strong support for both server-side and HMI-side scripting. The scripts are written in pure Java language exposing all system libraries to a developer. Plus, AggreGate SCADA has two domain-specific languages: query language for data mining and expression language for building alert triggers, event filters, etc.

Task Scheduler

Task Scheduler

All system actions supporting unattended mode may be executed according to simple or advanced schedule. Simple schedule ensures that the job is executed every N seconds, while advanced schedule allows fine-grained planning, such as "Every 3-rd Friday of May, at 23:30, during years 2011-2015".

Reporting

Reporting

Any type of license allows creating unlimited number of reports. Report source data may be extracted by expression or by query, but Design Builder tool can create report template from any tabular data in just two clicks. Moreover, the templates can be fine-tuned or created from scratch in the embedded Report Editor.

SQL Support

SQL Support

AggreGate SCADA/HMI stores both configuration and trend values in the SQL database to ensure uniform data access. Most enterprise-grade databases are supported, including MySQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and others. Trend data storage is fully configurable in terms of sampling periods and storage duration.

SCADA Symbol Library

SCADA Symbol Library

The installation bundle includes a large library of dynamic automation symbols in Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format. The library is divided into multiple categories, like tanks, valves or pipes. All symbols support on-the-fly manipulations, such as changing colors/strokes, zoom and rotation, starting/stopping animations, and manipulating individual elements (e.g. tank levels).

Open-source SDK

Open-source SDK

AggreGate Server provides open-source APIs for Java and .NET. These APIs allow full remote control of the server and access to all server/device data from any third-party application. It's also possible to create new device drivers and data processing/presentation plugins. In addition, AggreGate Server can be controlled via Web Services.

Flexible Security Model

Flexible Security Model

AggreGate Platform establishes serious security infrastructure for AggreGate SCADA/HMI by providing flexible role-based access control. In addition, all communications between server, operator workstations, HMIs and third-party systems are performed via SSL-secured connections.

Architecture

Unlike traditional SCADA systems, AggreGate SCADA/HMI has no difference between development and runtime environment. The system server, optionally backed up by the second failover server or connected into a multi-server distributed installation, runs a single "project".

It communicates with controllers, stores trend data in the SQL database and serves remote connections from operator workstations, HMI touchscreens and third-party systems. System administrators have no reason to physically access the server, even the most complex administrative operations are performed remotely via the secure network connection.

Integrating Automation with IT

While supervisory process control is the key task for automation and maintenance engineers, overall efficiency of any industrial company is heavily dependent on the health of its IT infrastructure. Most SCADA systems are now integrated into the corporate IT infrastructure by operating through the IP network, using common SQL databases for storage, and authenticating users through Active Directory / LDAP.

However, there are no industrial automation systems that are equally aware of how to manage IT infrastructure. This domain includes thousands of dedicated tasks, from traffic decomposition helping to find bandwidth bottlenecks up to monitoring VoIP communications health.

The situation becomes totally different with AggreGate. The AggreGate Internet of Things Platform serves a common foundation for both AggreGate SCADA/HMI and AggreGate Network Manager, an enteprise-grade IT infrastructure management solution designed for corporate networks, telecom providers and datacenter operators.

The Network Manager not just integrated with SCADA/HMI. Two systems share the same core, making it possible to make no difference between PLCs, routers/switches, and monitored applications/services. Both products share all data acquisition, storage and processing subsystems, as well as alerting, reporting, modeling, visualization and other functionality.

This ensures unparalleled interaction between industial and IT engineers, as well as a single point of northbound integration into EAM/ERP/ITSM and other Business Intelligence systems.

Process downtime and performance/quality degradations are equally caused by automation and IT infrastructure, so having an umbrella monitoring system for both provides a single point of control for company management.
