Maintenance of our historical SCADA product

With Cimview, ensure the proper functioning of your technical installations

Cimview, the forerunner of SCADA

In the late 1980s, with successive restructurings, more and more large companies drastically reduced their facility management teams.

This lack of resources was compounded by an additional difficulty. Indeed, each new automation project went hand in hand with the addition of its own control tool, parallel to the existing systems.

As a result, the site manager was faced with the lack of vertical integration allowing the permanent linking of management information with field data. As for the operator, they were confronted with a major difficulty in monitoring significant data from totally heterogeneous systems, through disparate man-machine interfaces.

Finally, the production manager had to be able to monitor their installations in real time and access historical data to analyse, understand and certify.

Cimview, SCADA and distributed archiving

We then created Cimview, which brings together all the relevant data for the remote management of facilities, from the smallest to the largest, in a single operator interface.

This information is then automatically redistributed to the control stations and to third-party applications in real time.

Today, Cimview is still used by public and private companies managing large infrastructures: buildings, water and energy distribution networks, steel sites, etc. Synthetis ensures its maintenance and durability.

Cimview is supervision software adapted to very large configuration

Cimview’s modular design allows for a distributed architecture across multiple servers for real-time data acquisition, archiving and processing.

Cimview’s fully event-driven operation allows for a very high level of responsiveness with a large number of visualisation stations.

Cimview has a built-in “historian” that allows you to archive tens of thousands of acquired variables.

These cutting-edge characteristics have enabled Synthetis to maintain Cimview in optimal operation for many years, guaranteeing the sustainability of its industrial clients’ heavy investments.
