L3Harris selected GLG Toolkit to provide the HMI subsystem for the Machinery Plant Control and Monitoring System (MPCMS) onboard the U.S. Coast Guard Juniper-Class USCG Seagoing Buoy Tenders (WLB). The system provides a graphic user interface that allows operators to navigate between HMI pages that represent the propulsion, tank level indicators, electrical, and auxiliary systems.

Each HMI page contains graphical representation of equipment that can be controlled with a mouse-based point-and-click interface. The system also provides HMI screens for displaying and acknowledging alarms, monitoring communication traffic, configuring user selectable analog points for logging, as well as elaborate utility screens for adjusting set points and other system parameters.

In addition, the system provides the ability to initiate digital commands to toggle the operation of various pumps, circuit breakers, motors, etc., while maintaining continuous graphical feedback of the various systems and subsystems. This system is built to a high level of shipboard automation as prescribed by the American Bureau of Shipping (ACC), one-person engine room, which allows for control and operation from multiple shipboard locations.

The HMI subsystem also provides the On-Board Training Mode (OBT) that allows for an instructor to log into the system as an instructor to simulate plant configurations including malfunctions and alarms on an HMI station that has been configured as a student station.

While in the training mode, operation of the workstation peripherals has no effect on the actual machinery or equipment, but is evaluated by the simulation routine to progress the training scenario. Displayed status pages and mimics update to simulate expected conditions and maintain a sense of realism during an exercise. Clear and concise indication that the system is in training mode is also provided to the trainer, students, and ship's crew.

BIS (Baltic Information Systems, Ltd.) is a software company specializing in development of safety and process monitoring systems for Nuclear Power plants.

The BIS's new product, BISMARC, is a universal process control and monitoring SCADA system that may be configured to fulfill almost any plant monitoring task. It utilizes client/server architecture with TCP/IP-based communication and multi-level redundancy for high reliability, where the server software performs the PLC data acquisition, data processing and archiving, while the client software is responsible for data visualization and handling user interaction. In a distributed system, each node may serve as a server and client simultaneously. BISMARC is currently available on the Linux platform.

The GLG Toolkit is used as the core engine for the graphics subsystem of the client application, the Plant Inspector. HMI drawings created in the GLG Graphics Builder are used as templates which are loaded into the Plant Inspector module at runtime. The Plant Inspector periodically updates trends and control points defined in the drawings with the real-time data values from PLCs. An operator can control plant devices by the means of buttons, toggles, switches, dials and other input objects in the drawings.

"We prefer the GLG Toolkit because of its flexible and powerful development environment, cross-platform design, Unicode and True Type font support, concise API, nice graphics and many other features. An excellent support from the Generic Logic team was invaluably helpful during the development process."

Partnering with Generic Logic

Generic Logic offers special programs and OEM discounts for value-added resellers, consultants, as well as system and network integrators who want to partner with Generic Logic.

Contact Generic Logic if you want to resell, embed, or bundle GLG products or technology with your own product to provide a value-added solution for your customers.

Company Information

Generic Logic was founded in 1994 to develop and market the GLG Toolkit - a set of editors, libraries, tools and components for creating and deploying dynamic graphical displays to visualize and control real-time processes in variety of industries.

The GLG Toolkit was developed as part of the consulting activities from 1989 to 1994. It has grown from an in-house consulting tool into a top-of-the-line real-time graphics and data visualization product with various additional packages and deployment options, from the Java version of the Toolkit to the Map Server module with an integrated GIS functionality.

The flexible component-based architecture of the Toolkit with open data interface allows applications to use it as a add-on graphical interface module, without locking them into a proprietary application framework, which is the case with many other packages. The unique features of the Toolkit, such as constraints, resource or tag-based data access and infinite customization capability, provide application developers with a powerful tool to handle the ever-increasing visualization needs of modern applications.

Generic Logic is continuing to increase the power and flexibility of its premier product - the GLG Toolkit, dedicating big portion of the company resources to the development of new features and adapting the Toolkit to new markets. The GLG Toolkit family of products supports a wide variety of hardware platforms and software deployment options for Linux/Unix and Windows with cross-platform support for OpenGL rendering. It icludes the Java and C# / .NET version of the Toolkit, as well the HTML5 JavaScript version for the Web and Mobile deployment in a web browser. An alternative AJAX Graphics Server version for the server-side web deployment is also available.

Generic Logic is constantly working on extending its product offerings. A new HTML5 JavaScript version of the Toolkit makes it possible to deploy GLG drawings on the Web and Mobile devices and reuse application logic in the JavaScript code for easer porting.

The GIS Map Server product compliments GLG Toolkit by offering GIS mapping functionality, stand-alone or integrated into the Toolkit. A combination of the GIS mapping functionality with the Toolkit's dynamic capabilities provides new exciting opportunities for developing mission-critical applications.
