Advantech’s WebAccess Platform Enables a Smart Building Management System for a Well-Known Exhibition Hall in Taiwan
Advantech WebAccess is browser-based HMI/SCADA software package and open management platform. With support for various communication protocols and the inclusion of a node upload tool (Super SCADA) and automatic switching redundancy mechanism, WebAccess allows system integrators to easily combine various heterogeneous systems into a connected and stable smart building management system. The platform’s browser-based access and graphics control software reduce the time and effort required to implement smart building management.
For this project, Advantech provided its WebAccess software package along with various tags for the smart building management system, including two sets of 64K tags for the main and redundant systems located in the central control room, one set of 20K tags for the security system, and one set of 600 tags for tablet PCs deployed in the showroom. Using this equipment, Leegood was able to successfully integrate the exhibition hall’s diverse subsystems and collect relevant data. Thus, if unique or abnormal conditions are detected, either inside or outside the exhibition hall, the WebAccess management platform will be able to prompt the subsystem to initiate the relevant actions and transmit alert notifications.
