New Challenges for Interoperability of Control Systems
Visualization of data from SCADA systems and control systems databases on Internet browsers is becoming an important constituent part of control system functioning. New Web technologies for automation systems allow effective way of various data formats exchanging that was earlier difficult or impossible at all. Modern today’s Web technologies were analyzed and was shown that it is possible to solve interoperability problems between different fieldbuses or databases more effectively, when data structures of control systems and device profiles are described in XML. It was shown that XML and it supporting family of technologies allows new possibilities for description of control systems data base content and structure.
