64-bit HMI/SCADA and Plant Historian Suites Level the Playing Field

Houston, TX — ISA Automation Week October 5, 2010 — ICONICS, a Microsoft® Gold Certified Partner of the Year and provider of Web-enabled, industrial visualization software for Microsoft Windows operating systems, announced a team of 64-bit automation suites that are truly game changers for industrial automation. GENESIS64™ and Hyper Historian™ are gaining market share and changing the way that plants operate.

Newly released GENESIS64 V10.5 is designed from the ground up to utilize OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and 64-bit multi-core hardware platforms. The GENESIS64 suite includes several modular solutions that simplify connectivity from the plant floor to corporate business systems. Compatible with Microsoft Windows® 7 and certified for Windows Server® 2008, it allows plant operators, IT professionals and facility managers to integrate real-time manufacturing and business information into a common, Web-enabled visualization dashboard. The GENESIS64 suite is comprised of GraphWorX™64, TrendWorX™64, AlarmWorX™64, EarthWorX™ and the Workbench Web-based development, deployment and operations products.

The new Hyper Historian V10.5 is an extremely high speed, reliable and robust industrial data historian solution. It takes full advantage of the latest 64-bit .NET-based computing technologies and numerous performance features. Hyper Historian is certified for Windows Server 2008, compatible with the Windows 7 operating system and leverages the new OPC Unified Architecture Standard.

“GENESIS64 and Hyper Historian are the first 64-bit OPC UA compliant product suites on a Microsoft platform that are robust, scalable, high-performance and enterprise-wide for industrial automation applications,” said Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS. “Both products have been designed to handle the most mission critical applications that demand the highest level of availability and deliver unparalleled performance with very efficient use of computing resources.”

“The latest releases from ICONICS demonstrate their commitment to developing and delivering the highest quality products based on the OPC technology,” said Tom Burke, President and Executive Director of the OPC Foundation.

Hyper Historian delivers unparalleled performance with very efficient use of computer resources. This is the first plant historian to be compatible with Microsoft Windows® 7 and certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2008® and includes tight integration with SQL Server® 2008. This technology makes the Hyper Historian from ICONICS, the best-in-class, real-time plant historian for any Microsoft 64-bit operating system.

“Manufacturers are deploying the latest Microsoft operating systems and technologies in part to address their requirements for 3D visualization and data archiving of both their manufacturing and business processes”, according to Craig Resnick, Research Director at ARC Advisory Group. “Windows 7, running on computers with new 64-bit processors, and leveraging features such as Multi-touch and Silverlight, will further enhance the real-time visualization and data archiving capabilities of software tools such as ICONICS’ GENESIS64 and Hyper Historian.”
