SCADAview History

  • SCADAview has come a long way, here is a brief history:

XENIX (1985)

Prior to the DOS version we attempted to have someone write a central control program using the XENIX operating system).  Not much is known about this... and it didn't work.


DOS Version 1 (1986)
"Function keys version"
Central card rack CTU5/CTU6
SCADA or HMI was not a term used yet - we just called it "Haynes Central Control" software
Written using Microsoft BASIC.



DOS Version 3 (1987-1990)
First graphic system using Dr. Halo to draw the screens
Central card rack CTU5/CTU6


DOS Version 4-5 (1989-1999)
First version to add support for more than 2 analog inputs in a station
(up to 6 based on special central code written for Web Water Development, SD)
Central card rack CTU7/CTU8 or C2000
Written using Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System 7

Graphics screen example:


SCADAview for Windows (1995-2002)
Central was C2000 or card rack
Written using Microsoft Visual Basic


SCADAview 32 (2003-2011)
Added support for 16-bit analog data from new generation central PLCs (S4500 etc.)


SCADAview CSX (2010 and beyond!)
