LabVision®-Process Visualisation & Control
A maximum of automation with a minimum of engineering

LabVision® is the trend-setting, modular visualisation and automation software system for automation devices from HiTec Zang and other manufacturers. A process is monitored, controlled and regulated using LabVision® and all procedures are recorded and archived.

The processing system is shown on the display as a dynamic flow diagram for monitoring and operating. The online evaluation provides important information on your process at run time. The process data chain ranges from the definition of the experiment up to the laboratory information management system.

LabVision® is, in the opinion of many users, currently the most powerful and most prestigious research process control system (RPCS) software. It is particularly suited for the visualisation and automation of flow and batch processes in laboratory, pilot plant, mini-plant and production areas in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and foodstuffs technology industries. Thanks to its flexibility, it is also used in other sectors, such as landfill, solar and environmental technology.

The particular strength of LabVision® is in its flexible use. The program meets the requirements of the NAMUR working party - AK 2.4 for research process control systems (RPCS) and is thus equipped for frequently changing or modified tasks.

LabVision® may be used at different levels of complexity. If you wish to benefit from LabVision® as a pure user, one day of instruction is usually sufficient in order to learn everything which is necessary.

But even if you wish to create automation projects for varying systems yourself, you can learn how to do this in one day with a suitably equipped workplace.

This is enabled through the project module library which contains predefined project modules for all important basic functions, such as temperature controlling, dosing, regulation of the pH value or vacuum, distillation etc. 

A familiarisation period of only about one week is required for specialists who wish to learn about all of the possibilities of parameterisation and programming in place of the month-long training courses required for conventional distributed control systems. 

The Advantages

  • Complete documentation of the entire process
  • More efficient use of your resources
  • Consistent presentation of values, events and process phases
  • Release from routine activities
  • Savings during the instrumentation thanks to virtual devices
  • Realisation of a processing data chain without interruption from the job order to the laboratory information management system

LabVision®-Basic Module

The LabVision® basic module is the minimum software configuration of the LabVision® program system. It is sufficient for systems with a small quantity structure and a low level of automation. It can be upgraded to the full or light versions using the expansion modules. The number of data points can also be expanded.

A LabVision® license contains a free-of-charge update authorisation for three months. Small changes (bug-fixes) within a main version can also be downloaded from our web server after expiry of this time period.

Minimum or demonstration versions of some modules are contained in the basic module. The basic module contains 30 data points.

LabVision® Process Report

In the process report all events, values or parameters are recorded and visualised whose presentation as a graph are not useful or possible.

LabVision® Multi-Plotter System

The multi-plotter is an innovative, holistic plotting system. It displays to you the current and historical process conditions in the form of values (analogue plotters), events (event plotters) and process phases (phase plotters) clarity and consistency not seen until now.

LabVision® Online Chart

The Online Chart displays diagrams of values against time. The time axis can be optionally labelled with absolute time or time relative to the time of commencement, i.e. starting with zero.

RI-CAD™ for process flow charts

The RI-CAD™ software module which is linked with the Designer was especially developed for the drawing of RI flow charts and contains a library in accordance with EN ISO 10628. It is used for the drawing of static background images of display and control graphics.

LabVision® Project Modules

The technology of the LabVision® project modules marks a new generation of automation software with a user-friendliness and functionality not seen until now. 

Instantiated project modules enable the visual creation of projects using prefabricated, ready-to-use modules using a drag and drop technology, i.e. a project is established by moving the required project module elements necessary for the demanded functions from a Designer library onto the worksheet.

LabVision® Access Control and User Administration

Depending on requirements, the user administration may be set by the administrator to the strict FDA regulations (GLP, GMP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11), or to quick ability to react to faults and to restrictions against operating errors.

Monitoring and Reporting in LabVision®

Complex systems require sophisticated, flexible alarm strategies. The extended alarm module was developed for this reason. In this way, various reactions to threshold and warning value violations can be set up by the user.
