  • access data from everywhere
  • provide public access to the data (http://www.amatiscontrols.com)


Solution:

  • The DSA/Scada framework embedded in the DLONIP Lonworks/Ethernet gateway has been customized to gather datapoints from various sources such as LEAX's HVAC Lonworks devices, Lonmark devices, BACNet devices, ...
  • A custom Silverlight template has been created to replace the DONIP's default theme and provide a custom theme for LEAX's products
  • A custom Scada service user interface has been created to fit the project's specifications and display appropriate graphs, views, controls and alarms


Benefits:

  • User interface is easily customized for each project by using powerfull tools such as Microsoft Expression Blend
  • Once custom datapoints provider are created, they can be re-used for other projects. The specific datapoints configuration is done by a tool provided with the DLONIP4 SDK
