LinuxPR: DataViews…Announces First Open Architecture HMI Development Tool For Linux

Vendor Meets Customer Demand in Industrial Control,
Telecommunications, Transportation and Aerospace.

“DataViews Corporation, the leading provider of open and
high-performance human machine interface (HMI) development tools
for creating operator interfaces, today announced that its high-end
HMI software tool, DataViews, now supports Linux. With this
announcement, DataViews Corporation has become the first provider
of open architecture HMI tools to allow both development and
deployment of Linux-based HMI displays. This solution fulfills the
need for a system that has all the benefits of UNIX — open
systems, high performance, and high reliability — at a small
percentage of its cost. It also eases potential integration
problems between UNIX servers and Windows clients, allowing
developers to host and deploy client-server applications under a
common platform. DataViews for Linux is designed for development of
large-scale, multi-level, mission-critical applications in a range
of industries, including industrial control, telecommunications,
transportation, SCADA, network management, telemetry, simulation,
Geographic Information Systems, building automation and facilities

“DataViews for Linux is a high-end HMI development tool with an
open architecture and support for X-Windows systems. This open
architecture promotes interoperability, easing the process of
integrating HMI systems with enterprise-level information systems,
such as ERP/MRP. DataViews for Linux also:

  • Promotes scalability — allowing developers to meet increased
    demand for more complex HMI systems.
  • Provides an extensive set of C APIs — giving users complete
    control of HMI properties at both design and run time.
  • Features DV Draw — a point-and-click graphical editor that
    allows developers to access thousands of pre-built graphical
    objects, expediting the process of creating HMI displays.
  • Supports flexible deployment options — allowing applications
    built with DataViews for Linux to be deployed to client-server
    applications or to the Internet/an intranet via a Web browser
  • Offers an open data connectivity model — which allows
    developers to create custom data connectivity for connecting to
    their data sources.”
