Mitsubishi Electric Renews SCADA Lineup

Supporting the increasing focus on digital manufacturing and IoT, Mitsubishi Electric has renewed its SCADA lineup, now offering two types of software for system monitoring and process control under the series name “GENESIS64”, replacing the existing “MC Works64” SCADA software. The new lineup will meet the diversifying IoT needs, covering a wide variety of purposes from small production line monitoring and control to multi-site monitoring and business intelligence (BI) of plant-wide systems, process automation as well as utility and building automation. The “GENESIS64 Basic SCADA” is an entry-level software with essential functions for small production lines, and the “GENESIS64 Advanced Application Server” is a full SCADA suite for large-scale monitoring of factories, buildings and utilities.

For customers with bigger system needs, “GENESIS64 Advanced Application Server” will help to create a serverless system using cloud computing, which will facilitate the construction of redundant, multi-location or other highly secure, large-scale systems. This “top end” soft-ware can also connect to wearable devices such as smart glasses and smart watches, supporting customers interested in introducing remote monitoring or giving work instructions remotely. Furthermore, the software can be operated by voice commands with the use of AI smart assistant speakers, which helps operators avoid touching the monitoring screen – another function that supports the “new normal” in the manufacturing world.

With the renewal of the SCADA lineup, Mitsubishi Electric customers will have a unified one-stop access to SCADA solutions provided by the U.S.-based ICONICS, Inc., a SCADA and IoT analysis software company acquired by Mitsubishi Electric in 2019. Customers will be able to benefit from the combination of ICONICS’ software technology and Mitsubishi Electric’s FA technology spanning expanded software products and services from the edge to the cloud, all targeted at helping customers solve their automation and process control issues. This integration is initially demonstrated in the direct connection of Mitsubishi Electric PLCs to the GENESIS64 SCADA software, achieving automatic detection and smooth startup while eliminating the need for an OPC server.
