Custom Screens

With HT3 SCADA Software, it's easy to create custom screens. Using the built-in Screen Builder Program, users can quickly develop screens for their application using easy to understand configuration parameters and tools. A library of commonly used graphical objects enables you to create animated screens with minimal effort. In addition, images created in other graphic image development programs are easily imported for use.

System Statistics Viewer

This screen (which comes with your system and is built with Screen Builder) displays information on the current status of important system-level points, including driver loop time, Hyper SCADA Server (HSS) AC power and battery voltage, active Hyper Server Module (HSM) CPU usage, and length of time active HSM has been running since its last reboot.

The points used in this screen are built-in external status points that monitor the health of your system.

Information available from this screen:

  • CPU usage
  • System date and time
  • Backup status
  • CPU temperature
  • Redundant HSM (2nd HSM) status
  • Hard Disk Driver (HDD) usage
  • RAM memory usage
  • HSM up time
  • AC power status
  • Number of drivers
  • Number of stations
  • Number of points
  • Number of TCP connections
  • Battery voltage
  • Driver loop times

Station Status Viewer

What makes DFS' HT3 SCADA software superior over many other SCADA Software packages is its ability to create a default graphic screen immediately viewable after the RTU information is configured in the system. The Station Status Viewer allows you to quickly view the status of each point for a specific station. From this viewer, you can also perform a control for any control point configured at the station.

Stations can be sorted by address or by name. Clicking a station address or name loads a new screen that lists all of the station's modules and points.

  • Clicking a monitor (input) point opens a historical trend of the point's activity over the past 24 hours
  • Digital and analog outputs can be controlled by clicking them. Clicking a digital output enables you to change its state (for example, from ON to OFF or from AUTO to DISABLED). When a digital output is clicked, it flashes and its value changes (e.g., from ON to OFF). When an analog output (control) point is clicked, the value box becomes active and you can type the desired value.Clicking a point, loads a historical trend of the point's activity over the past 24 hours.
