What’s NEW in the 2020 Release?

InTouch Unlimited – Technical and Commercial Flexibility like never before
InTouch Unlimited is a new offer. InTouch Unlimited is more than just a new commercial model. It offers customers new value and architectural flexibility never offered before.
This capability addresses the need for cost efficient enterprise-wide accessibility. Now every company can access the most powerful HMI software in the market without having to compromise your standard.

Modernization of stand-alone InTouch Applications

This new release presents thousands of new and legacy InTouch users opportunity to benefit from modernization through Industrial Graphics, richer animations, multi-touch, web access and more! This release brings the power of Industrial Graphics and frame windows to all InTouch HMI legacy users. This is foundational to deliver standalone InTouch applications in a web browser using InTouch Web Client. Moreover, this will provide the familiar WindowViewer-like experience across web browsers.

New InTouch Tag Server Client License

A common architecture is that of a Tag Server architecture. This new license will allow WindowViewer to run and only connect to a remote InTouch Tag Server, as a ‘Tag Server Client’.

This is an extension of the InTouchView Application licensing which will now allow users to choose between “System Platform Galaxy” or “InTouch Tag Server” as the remote data source. This enables more costeffective solution for tag server applications where there is no need for local IO connectivity, alarming, etc.

New Application Manager: Modern UI and workflow improvements

InTouch HMI introduces a new Application Manager. But it’s far more than just a change in look. Existing workflows have been improved and new ones added.

Three different views are available: A list view, a tiled view and a detailed view (classic). The new list and tiled views give better visibility to the details of InTouch HMI applications and make several operations available directly from the tiles. Workflow improvements include for example, streamlining the application creation process which reduces 9 steps to only 2.

Native integration of InTouch to AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware

AVEVA InTouch HMI supports a high-performance native interface to historize InTouch tags to the AVEVA Historian. You can choose between archiving data to the traditional local historical log file (*.lgh file), to the AVEVA Historian, or to both! Additionally, this functionality provides store and forward capability when historizing.

Native Mobile Apps for Android and iOS

Remote and local operators experience the same look and feel on tablets and smart phones with support for touch centric pan and zoom functionality including
ability to write back and  acknowledge alarms.

Features of AVEVA InTouch HMI

AVEVA InTouch controls more than 100,000 plants and factories around the world, helping to achieve world-class performance, reduce costs and improve product quality.

InTouch HMI comes equipped out-of-the-box with a comprehensive library of pre-built, pre-tested stunning graphical symbols library and faceplates containing over 500 professionally designed graphic symbols, most with customizable intelligence already incorporated, giving you drag-and-drop access to pre-built engineering components.

InTouch lower the engineering cost enabling you to quickly and easily develop custom graphical views of your real-time processes.

The Situational Awareness Library of graphics provides a superior set of building blocks for dynamic process visualization. It’s a unique resource that helps make it easier for operators to focus on the most useful content to minimize distraction and fatigue. The result is less disruption and downtime, and greater focus on performance improvement, safety and cost control.

Virtualization technologies are key enablers for companies looking to save on hardware costs. InTouch HMI leverages Hyper-V and VMware so you can set up redundant applications locally or at a remote site for more cost effective high availability and disaster recovery options.

Dynamic resolution conversion provides runtime scaling between screen resolutions, so you can view InTouch HMI applications on a variety of screen resolutions without having to modify the application. This enables operational agility with the ability to build and run applications anywhere.

Pan and Zoom provide a simple, intuitive way to interact with your visualization applications in a modern, multi-touch hardware environment. The Pan and Zoom capabilities can also be enjoyed using a keyboard and mouse in addition to a multi-touch interface. Zoom level is accessible programmatically, enabling powerful visual tools such as application clutter/de-clutter.

The world’s favorite HMI is also fully mobile, with the HTML5 Web Client and Access Anywhere. Casual remote web and mobile SCADA users can access InTouch HMI applications via any HTML5-compliant web browser, enabling users to securely monitor or troubleshoot plant equipment or processes from any location, on any device, at any time.

All casual and remote web HMI and mobile SCADA users can be empowered with InTouch Web Client unlimited user license. This read-only web browser access to runtime InTouch graphics offers a low-cost delivery option for users that simply need production or process status monitoring, KPI access and operational dashboards. Moreover, the world’s favorite HMI is also fully mobile and works just about on any device including tablets and smartphones, with zero client installation and zero maintenance.

In addition, for Operators, InTouch Access Anywhere is an extension to InTouch that provides full read write access to InTouch applications via any HTML5-compliant web browser. This offering fulfills our vision of enabling visualization, collaboration and execution at various levels of the organization. It enables users to securely monitor, control and troubleshoot plant equipment or process from any location, on any device, at any time.

InTouch is an open and extensible HMI with intuitive graphical animation and scripting capabilities that provide incredible power and flexibility for application designers. InTouch offers the ability to use vector graphics, bitmap graphics, library symbols, .NET controls and legacy ActiveX controls.

ArchestrA symbols support embedded .NET controls, giving you the freedom for unrestricted application extensibility without programming. They also offer access to standard controls such as Web browsers, desktop applications, mapping tools, ERP components and any other application based on .NET compliant controls.

With a thirty-year history of never leaving any customer behind, InTouch consistently provides seamless upgrade path year over year that protects customer’s investments in InTouch applications. An InTouch application implemented decades ago can still run, unchanged, on the latest InTouch software. You get all the benefits of the latest hardware and operating system improvements, without the re-engineering costs— no other company can make that claim. Simply the best HMI investment you can make.
