General

Developed over 10 years by MH Dalian Ltd, MH-SCADA is installed in thousands of sites in over 20 countries. MH SCADA is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) software application based on cloud computing technologies, incorporating the latest generation of software development.

MH-SCADA is a comprehensive software development platform suited to a wide range of industrial applications.

The MH-SCADA kernel is based on the Microsoft’s .NET framework development platform, which integrates seamlessly with real-time updates on the following Microsoft operating systems – Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 Release 2.

         

Product framework

MH-SCADA is a distributed framework and compromises the following four components: Agent Server (AS), MH-SCADA server (MS), tabbed document interface (TDI) designing interface, and run-time interface (UI).

Agent Server

Agent Server is responsible for managing Agents (i.e. "variables" in traditional configuration software) 、to collect and deliver data to the equipment;

Agent Server uses Microsoft Visual Studio C++ language to ensure efficient data collection and delivery.

MH-SCADA Server

MH-SCADA Server stores technical documentation via a graphical user interface with preset object oriented document sets etc. whilst simultaneously bridging data between Agent Server and the design and run-time interfaces.

MH-SCADA Server is developed in MS Visual Studio C# language to ensure network functionality, stability and expandability

TDI Design Interface

Design Interface is responsible for MH-SCADA project design; the user can design graphics windows, establish a user preview, and test preset documents and menus etc.

Run-time Interface

Run-time Interface is responsible for running projects designed by the Tapping Interface and carrying out man machine operations.

Product Features

Windows style tabbed document interface (TDI) environment
MH-SCADA Design Interface is similar to MS Visual Studio TDI environment and favors mouse tracking motion, thereby assisting the user to simultaneously design graphics windows, setting-up control attributes, super-imposing/deleting data and editing scripts, etc. within a single application window.

Vector Technology

MH-SCADA uses vector plotting, relative to traditional bit charting. Vectors are easily created and re-edited. They can also be scaled (zoomed) to whatever size you want without losing their quality or becoming distorted, allowing for the design of elegant graphical interfaces.

On-line development technology

Traditional software development adopts “offline configuration techniques”, requiring constant compilations after modifying variables, controls variables or the graphical interface – in order to see these changes in the run-time interface, which increases the required design time considerably. But MH-SCADA adopts an "on line configuration", in which there is no need for re-compilation as the runtime interface is automatically updated so there is no need to restart it to view the latest changes.

Click Once Technology

MH-SCADA adopts Microsoft’s Click Once Technology to deploy its runtime interface over the Internet.

Distributed Development Technology

MH-SCADA through the use of four separate components, namely the Agent Server, MH-SCADA Server, TDI Design Interface and the Run-time interface, provides you complete autonomy regarding how you choose to configure your projects. You can either choose to one or all of these components configured by a specific engineer or have several engineers work on separate instances of the interfaces, in separate locations if need be, to simultaneously develop your solutions.

In the example below, all the project data are saved on the same server. Section 1 is responsible for database management, and is situated in a separate location and connects to the server via the Internet. Section 2 is in another remote location, which is responsible for alarm management, and so also connects to the server via the Internet.

MH-SCADA Distributed Architecture

VB.NET and C# Script

MH-SCADA supports the use of the C# or VB.NET scripting languages. When developing and debugging your scripts, you can either use the default script editor or use Microsoft’s Visual Studio.

Spider chart

MH-SCADA’s spider chart is more suited to engineers not acquainted with scripting, who can create the necessary logical functions visually.

OEE Agent

The OEE Agent calculates OEE using parameters and/or recorded data record. It can also perform high-level production management functions.

OEE, namely the equipment integrated efficiency (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), measures the actual productivity of equipment. This provides a simple, continuous and efficient production management tool, which is comprehensively used in MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems).

Alarm Management Analysis

The Alarm Management Agent is a professional integrated alarm management agent, which can record, manage, count and analyze alarm signals. It also provides many advanced capabilities, such as complex queries and a statistics schedule.

Cluster Function

While traditional software typically only provided a backup of the current data, MH-SCADA provides an overall clustering function.

The Agent server can realize a one to one mode to assure the real time integrity of the data collection.

Because of the distributed configuration of MH-SCADA, several designing and/or run-time interfaces can connect to each MH-SCADA server.

The MH-SCADA server provides a load balancing function, which performs dynamic load distribution of several MH-SCADA servers, to reduce their stand-alone load and ensure the real-time running stability of their interfaces. Since several Large systems take full advantage of this facility.

Each server component of MH-SCADA all has cluster function, which combined with the distributed MH-SCADA configuration and the stability of this system whole ensures that traditional configuration software cannot compare with it.

Openness

In contrast to the parochial nature of traditional configuration software, MH-SCADA not only embodies a liberal openness but also satisfies any design requirements.

 

Fields of Application

MH-SCADA can be used in the following industries: petrochemical, car manufacturing, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, construction, mining, environmental protection, power generation, communications, building maintenance, warehousing, logistics and water conservancy, to name a few.
