Easy to use HMI / SCADA development software: SpecView

specially developed for engineers without programming experience!!!

Easy and quick connection to equipment

All I want to do is:

  • connect devices to my PC
  • operate devices
  • datalog signals from those devices and very easily create trendcharts so I can analyse the data quickly

That is all!!!

Welcome to SpecView

How can I help you?

Take large leaps forward with your process control
clear process visualisation

You know exactly how your process works

  • only you know the working of your process inside- and out. No hiring of externally involved PLC programming companies that have little knowledge of your process. No time consuming project meetings explaining to them what you want and need: just do it yourself!
  • easiest way to connect to many devices with many equipment support drivers.
  • In just a few mouseclicks you have the communication with your devices up and running!
  • Add datalogging and trendcharts, also in just a few mouseclicks
  • develop SCADA/HMI applications completely yourself in just a few minutes instead of days/weeks in a very easy way.
