The GLG Toolkit is
flexible and robust graphical framework for building visual interfaces
that display real-time data, such as operator displays for Process Control and Monitoring, SCADA / HMI mimics and diagrams, Traffic, Telemetry and Network Monitoring
displays, and other mission critical applications.
The .NET Edition of the Toolkit includes a
graphical HMI editor, a large number of pre-built components,
a C# User Control with a C#
class library for embedding the HMI screens
into an application.
A C/C++ DLL and an ActiveX Control options are also provided.
The Toolkit's run-time can be easily integrated into existing
SCADA applications, making it an ideal tool for developing custom HMI and SCADA systems.
Point and Click
The GLG Toolkit
includes the GLG
Graphics Builder - a graphical editor with point and
click interface for creating dynamic
HMI and SCADA screens and
diagrams. With the Graphics Builder, developers can create
control and system monitoring drawings, define dynamic behavior
and attach real-time data
sources. A number of pre-built components and palettes are available
for use as building blocks in the Builder. An optional GIS Map component is also available.
The HMI screens
use vector graphics and are resolution-independent,
to deploy them on a wide range of displays - from large monitors to mobile devices.
created with the
Builder can be reused between all deployment platforms - C/C++/C#/.NET,
Java, Web and Mobile.
C/C++ DLL or ActiveX Control
provides a choice of either a C#
class library, a C/C++
Library or an ActiveX control
for run-time deployment. These deployment options are used by an application to
load, display and update the HMI screens with real-time data at run time. All deployment
options provide a concise but extensive
programming API that allows developers to configure the HMI displays at
run time, as well as to handle user interaction.
The Toolkit's open
and flexible framework makes it easy to embed HMI screens into existing
SCADA applications without a need to rewrite the existing code, and
it saves months of
when developing new custom control and monitoring solutions.
A choice of
several API packages is available, from basic to intermediate and advanced.
for OEM Use
The GLG HMI Configurator,
a simplified version of the HMI
editor for the end-users, is also available. It may be used for
OEM distribution by system integrators and can be extensively
customized with custom actions, icons, dialogs, data browser and other custom
With the HMI
Configurator, an operator can create and configure
HMI displays by
dragging and dropping pre-built components from the provided
component libraries and connect them to data
