Operate across your entire network and workseamlessly from the terminals through to control level. zenongives you complete independence when choosing yourcomponents. You save time, costs and manpower.consistency drivers and connectionsThe consistency of zenon has set new standards in the zenon provides over 300 communication protocols. YouSCADA world. have the freedom to decide on the hardware with which you Platform-independent from Windows CE want to work. New machines or modules can be includedthrough Windows Embedded, Windows 7 and quickly and easily. In zenon, there are integrated standardWindows Server 2008 R2 to web. interfaces available (such as OPC DA, OPC UA, SQL ODBC, Consistent from PC to CE panels; both can be SNMP, Modbus RTU, Open Modbus TCP) which can be usedused as a client as well as a server. to connect to overlaid ERP systems, for example. Projects can run on both PC as well as CE panels. You can test each connection using integrated simulationto overlaid ERP system. editora project for all systems, from multiple monitor systems The zenon Editor makes consistent work possible.

Changes can be transferred to Runtime during operation and reloaded there without re- starting. In addition, remote administration provides inte- grated tools for analysis and remote facts Compatible and open – in terms of both hardware and software The zenon network concept harmonizes the PC and terminal worlds Transparency at all levels Platform-independence Hardware and manufacturer independence

You have flexibility over the languagein which your projects can be executed and you define theunits that are used to display values. Just configure yourproject and use it any time, in any language and with anyunits desired. You work efficiently and quickly and optimizeyour time to market.eight languages in the editor internationalize the runtimeThe user interface of the zenon Editor can be displayed in Runtime offers language and unit switching in as many lan-eight different languages.
