Vijeo Citect 7.2: A Powerful SCADA System for Industrial Automation
Vijeo Citect is a software product for designing and deploying SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems for monitoring and controlling industrial processes. SCADA systems are used to manage complex and large-scale operations, such as power grids, nuclear reactors, manufacturing plants, etc. Vijeo Citect allows users to create graphical windows, input and output devices, alarms, status indicators, controls and data logging features, and connect them to the real-time data sources. Vijeo Citect also supports integration with Schneider Electric hardware and Pelco cameras for enhanced security and surveillance.
Vijeo Citect 7.2 is the latest version of the software, which offers several improvements and new features, such as:
Tag extensions that provide rich data quality and time-stamping for all tags.
Server-side online changes that enable users to apply modifications to the alarm, trend and report servers without restarting or interrupting the system.
New templates and resolutions that support widescreen LCD displays.
Reduced engineering time by using metadata with graphics objects.
Microsoft Windows 7 support, including newly designed application icons.
System performance enhancements.
Runtime-only installation support.
Seamless integration with Pelco cameras for effective security monitoring.
Process Analyst enhancement to access CitectHistorian data.
New driver for tighter integration with Schneider Electric hardware via OFS (OPC Factory Server).
Vijeo Citect 7.2 is a powerful and flexible SCADA system that can meet the needs of any industrial automation project. It is compatible with Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows Server 2012. It supports both x86 and x64 architectures. The minimum system requirements are CPU 2 GHz or faster, RAM 2 GB for the client and 4 GB for the server, 160 GB of free disk space and 64 MB of video memory[^1^] [^2^] [^3^].Vijeo Citect 7.2 can be used to create various types of SCADA projects for different industries and applications. Some examples of Vijeo Citect projects are:
A water treatment plant that monitors and controls the water quality, flow rate, pressure, level and chemical dosing of the plant. The project uses Vijeo Citect graphics, trends, alarms, reports and scripts to display and manage the data from the PLCs and sensors. The project also integrates with Pelco cameras to provide video surveillance of the plant.
A power generation plant that monitors and controls the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The project uses Vijeo Citect graphics, trends, alarms, reports and scripts to display and manage the data from the generators, transformers, switchgear and meters. The project also integrates with Schneider Electric hardware via OFS to provide seamless communication and control.
A manufacturing plant that monitors and controls the production process of various products. The project uses Vijeo Citect graphics, trends, alarms, reports and scripts to display and manage the data from the machines, conveyors, robots and quality control devices. The project also uses tag extensions to provide data quality and time-stamping for all tags.
Vijeo Citect 7.2 provides a user-friendly and powerful environment for designing and deploying SCADA projects. Users can learn more about Vijeo Citect 7.2 by watching online tutorials, reading the user manual or contacting Schneider Electric support. aa16f39245
