The SCADA Project

  • As a whole the sofware seems stable. From some weeks now I have automated the electrical devices in my home, I haven't had any problems;
  • It is possible during the creation of the schema to observe some bugs for which reason I recommend that you save the project regularly;
  • For now the WeatherInfo block uses info from the online info on my website bgtimes.com;
  • - If I update the executable or the libraries, which are located in the Library subdirectory, it is not sure that a saved schema will open correctly;


  • SCADA Design

    In order to create a diagram, you have to add blocks with inputs and outputs to connected in the needed logical sequence, so as to get the desired diagram. All the graphical objects can be added from menu Add:

     The graphical elements consist of:

    Functional blocks

    • They can be added from the menu Add->Blocks. They are grouped in libraries according to their theirs functions. Double click over the block in order to add it.



    • Some of them are graphical objects which can visualize values from controlled/modelled process – Lamp, Scope, Volt meter (X Meter), Text Out. Another group of controls is human controlled input for the system, like Button, Check Box, Radio Buttons. The mentioned controls are accessible from the menu Add->Controls. Double click over the control in order to add it.


    Common purpose graphical objects

    • They are: Text, Bitmap, Color invertor, color line, transparent color line. These objects are accessible from the menu Add->Other graphic objects.


    All the blocks and controls have unique names. It is impossible to grant a name of block or control, which already exists.
