A reliable HMI / Scada platform

With over 22 years of life and installations in every automation fields, X Vision is a supervision platform widely tested in realizations of all sizes: from the panel pc to the control room, from single supervision station to solutions with multiple clients, up to geographical supervision.

International software

With X Vision it is possible to configure multilingual operator interfaces, intended for the international market, able to instantly switch the language according to the operator's preferences.

A "Self explaining" product

X Vision is an intuitive product that can be explained by itself during use, without the need to access online documentation. For those who want to deepen the knowledge of the product is still available a wide and detailed documentation of over 1000 (one thousand) pages.

Proactive, interactive, reactive

X Vision is a smart tool able to prevent configuration errors by checking every data input (pro-active, because prevention is better than cure ...), to interact with the programmer through guided functions ( helper, diagnostic tools) and reactive to easily allow changes to projects thanks to online editing.

Modular and open architecture:
a stable product because based on solid foundation

Since first edition, X Vision has been designed and engineered with a fully modular multi-tier client-server architecture. The modules communicate with each other but are completely autonomous and isolated in order to guarantee maximum system availability even in critical situations. These are the solid foundations on which X Vision is based and which make it an extremely stable product that allows it to grow.

Core Technologies

Crickets Automation's scada technology uses the standard technologies provided by Microsoft client, server and embedded operating systems.
The web solution is based on Internet Information Service (IIS 7 or later) and standard internet technologies such as
HTML5, SVG, Ecma Script recognized from W3C the consortium that regulates the Internet.

A single integrated development environment. True online editing, safe

A development environment fully integrated with the Runtime.
No difference between Runtime and development : you can edit the project by activating the editor on the same runtime machine (development option).
Safe: checking changes to the real-time database helps prevent unexpected operations while editing the database.
Free : free development system, all functions enabled.

Free vector graphics and large symbol library

The X Vision graphic editor allows you to freely develop high-impact synoptic pages. Pages development is completely vectored and is assisted by intuitive tools, with a large high quality and high resolution library with over 1200 symbols (included in the basic product). The high definition symbols allows the precise resizing of the same and assure perfect integration in any synoptic.

Reusable smart symbols

Thanks to free vector graphics, you can create complex objects that can be stored as symbols. Subsequently the symbol can be reused and modified at will in every projects. The symbol can be equipped with "Intelligence", ie the ability to perform actions at design and Run time. For example, the symbol can call up an input panel for items that control its animation or activate complex auto-configuration actions.

Trend

Trend animation allows in-depth analysis of historical measurements, allowing the comparison of several curves simultaneously.
It's a very flexible animation, of immediate use and able to display data in an attractive way.
The new WYSIWYG property editor allows you to edit the trend directly on the page, making easier to customize it with the context of the page. It is possible to configure the appearance of each single part of the trend and thanks to the transparencies it is possible to create graphs with a modern look and a great visual impact.
The animation is easily configured thanks to over 40 templates and 10 pre-configured themes, which can be further expanded by the user.

Gauge

Gauge animation allows you to create fully customizable and impactful analog instruments for richer operator interfaces. The new WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) property editor allows the tool to be modified directly in the synoptic, making easier to customize it in the context of the synoptic itself. It is possible to configure the appearance of each single part of the instrument, creating objects with a modern look and a great visual impact.

Scripting: The only limit is your imagination ...

X Vision integrates a powerful script engine with VBA and VB.NET compatible language, able to interact with the system components. There are many uses: for example, creating special animations on mouseover, data entry form, background logic, wizard for creating interfaces or automating repetitive functions.

Wide communication driver library

X Vision has a large collection of communication drivers for unique protocols to interface out-of-the-box with a multitude of PLCs, devices, control units, such as Siemens, Omron, Modbus RTU, Modbus Tcp, Panasonic, OPC.
The library is regularly expanded with new communication driver. Our OPC client allows interfacing with market OPC servers, extending connectivity to other protocols.

Security

X Vision is equipped with a flexible and configurable access control system that allows only authorized personnel to access information and commands, based on the assigned level and security areas . p>

Networking

X Vision allows the realization of several network architectures. To the data acquisition station, where the central real-time database resides, you can connect network clients and Remote Desktop Service server stations (formerly Terminal Server), as well as web clients for remote access to facilitate mobility.

Scheduler

The Scheduler module allows an advanced and flexible configuration of scheduled commands. In particular, it is possible to easily manage daily, weekly, monthly and special holidays schedules. Thanks to the time schedules it is possible, for example, to significantly improve the efficiency of the plants, achieving significant energy and economic savings.

Remote Alarm

Notify the right person, in real time, about a new anomalous situation, with an email, sms, fax or telephone message. It is a real multimedia sub-system useful for unattended installations and maintenance technicians.

Report

The X Vision product suite offers a convenient and efficient report generator (optional), integrated into the Scada architecture, which allows the design and execution of reports.
The produced reports are "snapshots", that is, they photograph and format the realtime data when the report is activated. Reports can be printed or archived in RTF for later analysis and distribution.
