The system is built to be modular and standardized. By capitalizing on standardized and common formats, creation of templates and logical groups are made possible.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The use of templates drastically Reduces the amount of work needed to create the system. Existing templates can be Reused without creating new ones. All templates can be Recycled for future projects and similar applications.
Relational Database Management System (RDBMS)
All historical data are stored in MSSQL Databases. The database can be hosted locally in the SCADA Server or remotely on a cloud-based Server. NBIS was developed using the .NET Framework.
The NBIS Productivity Tool makes full use of the methods described above and takes it another step further by streamlining and automating most of the processes involved in the setup of the NBIS project.
Utilizing pre-defined control and graphical templates and assigning it to the project will generate the SCADA tags automatically.
Pre generated graphics
Graphics for similar equipment types are referenced to the related tags using a set of rules. Using these rules, it is possible to use the same set of graphics for many different items. Therefore minimal amount of graphical generation is needed for each different project.
