Web Interface

Remote control

In the past the change of a PC that had system supervision software on board required the reinstallation or repurchasing of a version of the software that fit with the new operating system.  All of the peripheral locations had to be equipped with a local PC with “client” software installed, or there was a risk of losing the data in the case of an interruption of the connection with the central server.  Furthermore, in most cases, all of the modifications had to be carried out with the system out of service, with organizational difficulties and a notable increase in maintenance costs.
The new systems, which require careful supervision, are more and more delocalized and the need to be able to carry out remote control is increasingly strong.
Being informed in real time of faults, alarms, and anomalies, performing the utilities command, checking the hours of operation or intervening to modify the time slots of lighting activation or climate control is fundamental today.
This has been furthermore been accompanied for some time by the need to carry out the energy monitoring of all of your installations to control energy efficiency, avoiding wastes that entail significant cost increases.

The application of this new technology is fundamental for obtaining the high performances of the solution that we propose:
- Single central server that integrates an advanced web interface;
- Redundant system to avoid the loss of data;
- Possibility of modifications remotely with systems functioning;
- Asynchronous connection that does not require a continuously active connection;
- Data transmitted only to check the status variations, so as to occupy the least bandwidth possible;
- Fast connection with different communication technologies;
- Status changes and alarms are saved respecting the chronological order of each event, and marked with a timestamp automatically aligned with the time reference server available on the Internet;
- Remotization of the control to reduce maintenance costs.

The Telemetry, unlike traditional systems, is based on the principle of transmitting only the data necessary when required, without the risk of losing information during the disconnection period.
Our equipment transmits the values detected to the central server only when certain conditions are met. Examples of conditions that can cause the start of the transmission are reaching a time or exceeding a threshold preset by the operator. During the period in which the transmission is interrupted, the data are in any case detected and stored on an internal memory.
To better understand this process, you can simply think of the racing world. During a Formula One race, the cars transmit the sensitive parameters only when passing in front of the boxes. Along the rest of the track, the information is detected and stored on board the car itself.

The complexity of new installations that consist of different systems has led to the need to create an articulated integration among them which however allows one to have a general but simple and intuitive vision. Our solution essentially consists of two integrated realities: the innovative supervision software called WEBCON and the Duemmegi Bus systems.
WEBCON is the central supervision software, installed on a dedicated server, that integrates a web interface. To access the program it is enough to have an up-to-date web browser installed.
Every update on the server is immediately available to all of the clients without them needing to change anything. All of the first-level changes to the project can be carried out with the installation operating.

WEBCON is based on a distributed architecture, where multiple WEBCON systems in the field communicate locally with the field systems and devices and transfer the detected events to the central WEBCON system, which aggregates the data and provides an integrated user interface. It is furthermore possible to make multiple central WEBCON’s redundant and delocalized. In this configuration, every central WEBCON will maintain the state and the log of all of the events detected by the peripheral systems.
It is based on open HTML5 and Java standards: it can read data coming from any relational database equipped with a JDBC driver, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, etc.;

WEBCON allows the development of complex application logic on both peripheral and central systems using the standard programming language Java. It is also possible to completely customize the user interface, creating customized interfaces for distinct users and configuring the rights of execution of commands for each user, at both a peripheral and central level. The user interface is not only available on the central system: every WEBCON peripheral can have its own customized interface to locally present the data acquired from the field and carry out commands.
