Mango Automation is a full features SCADA / HMI solution that offers complete flexibility no matter how large or small your needs are. Mango can be used in hundreds of configuration, from data protocol gateway to graphic user interface. With the Mango expansion modules in the app store and the ability to build custom modules, you will find everything you need in Mango. Here is a list of the key features available.
Mango is a data logging, control, and monitoring system all in one featuring a browser-based interface. Yet, even on small embedded computers, Mango can host hundreds of data points collected from multiple data sources using multiple protocols. When more powerful equipment is used and MySQL is configured, Mango can easily support thousands or tens of thousands of points on a single instance.
Mango can receive data from any device for which there is a protocol driver. Currently supported protocols include BACnet I/P & MS/TP, Modbus (ASCII, RTU, TCP, and UDP), OPC DA, 1-wire, SNMP, SQL, HTTP, POP3, NMEA 0183, MBus, DNP3, OpenV, webcams, vmstat, and many proprietary protocols developed by or for hardware vendors. Mango also supports a "virtual" data source that can generate data for benchmarking or testing purposes. More protocols are being added regularly.
Mango ships with the Derby embedded database so that you don't have to have one of your own. But, Mango can also use MySQL or MSSQL for power users who need performance.
Tell Mango what events you are interested in. Users can define unlimited event criteria on points to detect conditions such as high and low limits, value changes, state change counts, and run-times.
Export your configuration to a text file. Save this file for backup and recovery, or use it to import into other instances of Mango to make identical copies. Or, use the file to manage very large configurations easily.
Any events that occur, either system or user defined, can be handled arbitrarily using user-defined event handlers. These handlers can send emails and escalations to mailing lists, or set values in Mango points.
Your data resides where you install Mango, so you are in control. User permissions are defined by system administrators, and all communications with Mango can be secured with SSL (Secure Socket Layer), ensuring the privacy of your information.
Each point can be configured with its own data logging and log purging characteristics. Logging schedules can be made to be independent of reading schedules.
Create and schedule reports for online viewing or email. Download data in CSV format for quick upload into spreadsheets or other data analysis programs.
Forward information gathered by Mango to other systems in your M2M architecture in on-event fashion for near real-time updating.
Quick charts and set points
Access and control is quick and up-to-date with Mango's roll-over charts and point set controls. The use of Ajax technology ensures that all of the information displayed is recent and relevent.
Create your own custom list of points that you want to watch. Easily add and remove points from the list to keep an eye on particular point values and alarms. Create named watch lists with your favorite groups of points. Instantly see multi-point graphs of the points on your list.
Create your own arbitrary hierarchies of points and point folders to organize your information the way you want to see it.
Use images, graphics, and animations to create dynamic dashboards and graphical representations of your data. With drag and drop simplisity you can be as creative as you like.
View point detail information including current value, detailed tabular and graphical charts, alarms, event detectors, and user permissions. Set point controls are also available.
Active alarms list
All pages in the application include an indicator of the highest active alarm level. Use it to link to the active alarms list where you can see all active alarms at a glance. Read and add comments and link to point details pages where actions can be taken.
Users can comment on events and points so that valuable knowledge is not lost. Event comments are sent with email notifications so that all users are kept up-to-date on system status.
Define events based upon time schedules. Events raised by schedules have access to all of the handling functionality that other event types have.
Changes to all information processing objects cause audit events to be raised, including new objects, changes and deletions. These events pass through the event management system so that all users can independently acknowledge the event.
Automatic software updates
Be notified when new versions of Mango are available. Simply copy the new Mango version into your installation directory and all of your data will be updated automatically.
Mango is fully internationalizable. New languages can be supported simply by translating the label file (and contextual documentation files). Currently translated languages are English, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese and Finnish.
Remote graphical views
Create portlets on your website that remotely display the views you create in Mango.
Hear sounds when alarms are raised in Mango.
