WIN-911 provides remote alarm notification software that integrates with major SCADA, HMI, and DCS systems. Our software offers a direct-connect feature allowing integration to major SCADA packages supported by Rockwell, GE, Wonderware, and National Instruments.
Our browse import tool makes it easy to bring in alarms that need to be monitored for remote alarm notifications. Importing an existing alarm configuration is simple and can be achieved by pointing our import browser at a supported file format or by using our subscription filter. This tool provides a transparent connection between your SCADA system and WIN-911. The advantage of a direct connection is the seamless link between the SCADA system and WIN-911.
Integrating WIN-911 with Existing SCADA Systems
Many WIN-911 users cite ease of use as one of the main factors in their decision to implement our alarm notification software. For the Portland Parks and Recreation department, installing and integrating WIN-911 with their existing SCADA system—used to monitor trends of free chlorine and pH in park fountains and water—was simple. “We heard about WIN-911 from a link on the Rockwell site several years ago. WIN-911 was the best choice because of how quickly it could integrate with FactoryTalk View; this made it easy to notify our workers of any alarms,” said Jason Freadman, of the Portland Parks and Recreation department. The city now uses Mobile-911 as a regular part of their fountains and aquatics monitoring systems.
Easily Organize and Configure Alarm Workflows
A comprehensive logic engine implements alarm escalations, scheduling, reporting, and other related features. Notification workflows can be created by the user to ensure that the correct personnel are notified on specific alerts. Alarms and data reports can be sent via smartphones, SMS, emails, and voice calls. This web of communication allows users to interact with WIN-911 in a variety of ways, which means they can choose the most appropriate and helpful methods for their needs.
The alarm activity occurring on a user’s SCADA system is processed by WIN-911 with the ability to implement real-time alarm notification via two-way voice, two-way SMS text, local paging, or push notification in our latest smartphone app Mobile-911. An operator can quickly respond to an alarm notification with one of the available two-way notifications options.
