OTTAWA, ON, Canada, Feb. 1, 2008 -- Control Microsystems, global developer of advanced RTU/PLCs, SCADA management software, and intelligent sensors, has announced a new partnership with AutoSol® (Houston, TX). As part of the partnership, the AutoSol Enterprise Server (AES) will be offered with ClearSCADA 2007, the full-featured SCADA automation management system designed for high performance installations in oil & gas, water & wastewater, and utility-based industries. ClearSCADA 2007 combines a powerful online object-oriented database; unique, multi-user development tools; a flexible data historian, alarming, and trending system; and an integrated module for electronic flow measurement (EFM). The AutoSol Enterprise Server is an OPC/DDE server that communicates with different manufacturer SCADA and utility-metering devices in their native protocols, over a single or multiple telemetry circuits.

"Our advantage grows again," stated Eric Schwantler, ClearSCADA Product Director - Control Microsystems. "With AES on-board we can now easily interface with an expanded range of third-party software and hardware systems. From extending the service of legacy field devices, to providing the latest in SCADA management technology, ClearSCADA is now the most capable host software available on the market for EFM (Electronic Flow Measurement) and AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) systems."

Enhanced Communications
AutoSol Enterprise Server (AES) focuses exclusively on multi-protocol SCADA and EFM communications in languages native to each device type, including Control Microsystems SCADAPack, Allen Bradley DF1, and Siemens 505. Uniquely positioned, AutoSol is the only company dedicated to developing protocol drivers for both new and legacy field devices.

ClearSCADA 2007 is a full-featured SCADA automation and management system. The software supports a wide range of open architecture standards and communication protocols, including OPC (DA, HAD, A&E, XML), OLE Automation, ODBC/SQL, HTTP, XML, DNP3, IEC60870-5-101 and IEC60870-5-104 Master, SCADAPack Modbus, Modbus, and DFI. The product also boasts a built-in EFM system that provides configuration and data-reading support for gas flow computer-equipped SCADAPack RTUs. ClearSCADA 2007 is available in point sizes of 500, 1500, 5000, 25,000, and 50,000. Custom configurations are available for larger systems.

Pricing & Delivery
