What is the IGSS Dashboard?
IGSS Dashboard is a new module in the series of monitoring tools included in the IGSS V8 SCADA solution. The IGSS Dashboard module offers the end-users of the industrial systems to create their own personalized process overviews on-the-fly. Furthermore, with the Dashboard module, you will get several new ways of displaying different process data, for example, graphs, LOG and BCL data may displayed in one view and be updated automatically.
Possibilities with IGSS Dashboards
The IGSS Dashboard process overview is set up by using a number of widgets. Each widget type will allow you to access and display different data which is useful for monitoring the process. The following widget types are available in the IGSS Dashboard:
- Snapshot widget
Gives you continuously process values for a selected IGSS object
- Graph widget
A graphical display of one or several selected IGSS objects
- Log data widget
Provides you with a list of logged process data for one or more selected IGSS objects
- Memo widget
Write yellow notes to remind operators of any important events in the system
- Reduced data widget
Shows a list of Base Class(BCL) or Hour-Day-Month(HDM) values for one or more selected objects
- Web browser widget

The IGSS Dashboard module is run in a separate window, which is particularly useful in multi screen solutions. Below is shown an illustration of an IGSS Dashboard.
Setting up the Dashboards
When setting up your own Dashboard, you may create any number of
different views. For each view you will add the required widgets to
display the exact information that you want. For a view, you will also
define a time interval for which data to be displayed, for example:
this hour, today, last week, or any user-defined timer interval.
Benefits with the Dashboard module
The Dashboard module is very intuitive and easy to set up. The module is
included in the main IGSS license so no extra fee is required.
Dashboards will simplify operators Supervision by providing the exact
needed information in a user-defined layout.
