IWS SCADA/HMI Development + 1 runtime

The “Development” package allows the user to develop and execute the application for unlimited time (it combines the previous two licenses in a package). You have the option to install both licenses on the same computer or split them into different computers. If you are...


The “Development Only” package allows the user to develop as many applications as you like, test them for up to 72 continuous hours and deploy in a station where the runtime license is installed.


The “Runtime” package allows the user to execute the application for unlimited time, and blocks the development tools, so the user cannot create new applications or modify existing ones.

InduSoft Web Studio® Features



In addition to the many alarm functions you expect from InduSoft Web Studio, v7.1 also sends online alarms or reports using multi-media formats like PDF. Alarms are real-time and historical; log data in binary format or to any database. Use remote notification to have alarms sent right to your inbox, printer, or smartphone


IWS gives you great command over graphics in a user friendly and intuitive interface. Paste images, and even rotate them dynamically using custom rotation points. Fill bar graphs with color, or adjust the scale of objects with easy-to-use configuration. Other animations include ‘command’ (for touch, keyboard and mouse interaction), hyperlink, text data link, color, resize, and position.

Collaboration: InduSoft Collaborative Solution and ALM (Application Lifecycle Management): Compare any configuration file or merge changes from multiple developers. The collaborative solution offers support for versioning and source control, and interaction through Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server*, allowing Application Lifecycle Management on location or on the cloud.+

Database: Connect to any SQL database (MS SQL, MySQL, Sybase, Oracle), or MS Access or Excel, and ERP/MES systems(including SAP), even from Windows Embedded CE. InduSoft Web Studio is flexible, offering a built in interface that doesn’t require knowledge of SQL (for trends, alarms/events, grid and other objects). Use any SQL statement you need, anywhere you need it.

Drivers: IWS 7.1 provides over 240 native communication drivers for PLCs, temperature controllers, motion controllers, bar code/2D/RFID readers, and many other devices. Use these built in drivers, or connect to an OPC server. InduSoft driver toolkits even allow you the flexibility to build your own drivers.

Email: Send email to desktop computers, email enabled phones, or other enabled devices. Get real-time information on alarms, process values, and other events. InduSoft Web Studio v7.1 supports SSL encryption allowing the use of 3rd party providers such as Gmail.

Events: IWS v7.1 offers traceability for operator initiated actions or internal system activities. Log events such as security system changes (user logon or off), screen open/ close, recipe/report operations, system warnings, and any tag value changes, including custom messages.

FDA Traceability: Take advantage of built-in functionality to create 21 CFR part 11 compliant projects with traceability and e-signatures. These features are often used for pharmaceutical and food applications, but can be used for any application where traceability is a requirement.

FTP: Automatically upload or download files during runtime to/from remote storage locations using the FTP protocol and flexible scripting functions. Configure FTP via scripting or the included interface.

Graphics and Design Tools: Create screens to meet any application requirement using the tools in our graphic interface. Combine built-in objects to create any functionality required. Store graphics in the library for future use, and easily make projects across a product line share a consistent “look and feel”.

Historian Performance: InduSoft has optimized the trend history module, featuring data decimation designed to load millions of values from SQL Relational Databases. Easy to use tools provide quick access toStatistical Process Control (SPC) values without any need for programming.

Import Wizards: InduSoft Web Studio import wizards allow you to convert whole applications from PanelMate™ from Eaton, or PanelBuilder™ from Rockwell automation. It’s possible to save considerable time in conversion from a previously designed application to an InduSoft Web Studio application.*

Intellectual Property Protection: Screens, documents, scripts and worksheets can be individually password protected. This prevents unauthorized viewing or editing of your project or application. Protect your intellectual property with just a few mouse clicks.

Multi-Language: Develop your application in one of many development languages, including English, Portuguese, German, French, and Spanish, or use translation tools to switch the runtime to any language. InduSoft Web Studio v7.1 offers automatic font replacement based on the language selected.
