New generation Scada system. Industrial iot dynamic gateway.
WHAT IS BETAWAY?
BETAWAY is a new generation Scada system collecting shop floor data from heterogeneous systems, machinery, sensors and other processing systems, to be used for process purposes or to be sent to higher MRP, MES systems as well as to the Cloud for data analysis.
BETAWAY is a dynamic gateway for acquiring, processing, sending and controlling data. Customised services can be configured through a simple graphical interface.
BETAWAY is a multi-platform software, which can be installed on different devices and operating systems, it is open to integration with other systems, and it is modular, scalable and multi-process, based on input and output interface abstraction and job transformation for data normalisation.
The intuitive graphical interface eases the set-up of receiving and sending data parameters and customised services for different needs. It is possible to manage complex data sources such as TCP or simple text files.

MANAGES ALL INPUT AND OUTPUT MODULES
BETAWAY can be used to manage product and process tracking as well as, in the IoT environment: to satisfy use cases aimed at increasing efficiency; reducing human error; for greater control, optimisation and monitoring of production and costs.
Whether on its own, or with other modules of the platform, BETAWAY is used to manage quality control operations or to provide real-time data for monitoring and operating plants as well as for alarm management.
BETAWAY is enhanced with artificial intelligence algorithms to support your smart manufacturing projects.
Data does not have to have a predefined and standardised structure in order to be processed by the BETAWAY system. This allows supporting a wide variety of data sets.
Different types of protocols
Industrial protocols are widely supported depending on the requirements or the need to read data from a robot or a text file.
Sending notifications and alerts
By configuring threshold limits, the system is able to send real-time notifications when processed data diverges from the pre-set standard.
If an infrastructure node is no longer active, the system to heat can automatically adapt to new conditions by reacting to the hardware infrastructure on which it relies.
The output is easily visualised through pie and bar charts and real-time line graphs based on HTML5 technology.
The system can be configured on different types of devices (computers, tablets and smartphones) using the main browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
BETAWAY software has a scalable architecture. It is possible to install BETAWAY on high-performance server hardware or on hardware with less power.
The hardware on which BETAWAY has been successfully used is listed below:
- DELL R460 12Core, 24Thread, 32GB RAM
- DELL EPC 5000 Intel CPU E3825 2Core, 2Thread, 4GB RAM
- DELL EGW 3002 Intel CPU E3805 2Core, 2Thread, 4GB RAM
- DELL VOSTRO Intel CPU i5-8250U 4Core, 8Thread, 16GB RAM
- RaspberryPI Zero ARM CPU 700Mhz 1Core, 512MB RAMs.
OS (OPERATIVE SYSTEM)
BETAWAY is cross-platform. You will find below a list on which BETAWAY has been successfully used:
- Microsoft Window 7
- Microsoft Window 10
- Microsoft Window Server 2012
- Microsoft Window Server 2014
- Mac OS X 10.13 High Sierra
- GNU/Linux Ubuntu Server 19.04
- GNU/Linux Debian 9
- GNU/Linux Debian 10
- GNU/Linux Raspbian 10
PROTOCOLS AND CONNECTORS
TCP with single/multiple messages encoded in these formats:
- PLC S7
- PLC OPC UA
- Oracle MySQL DB
- Microsoft SQLServer DB
ENGINEERED WITH THE BEST TECHNOLOGY
The AngularJS framework, CSS3 and HTML5 were used for the frontend setup. The interface is responsive and therefore adapts to any type of device. Data displayed are updated in real time through the use of Socket.IO.
The server uses Node.js and relies on a non-relational database MongoDB in order to collect all the unstructured input data. BETAWAY uses the multi-processing features offered by Node.js Cluster and Redis, depending on the machine where BETAWAY is installed.
The list of configurable modules includes the main industrial protocols such as: TCP, Modbus, MQTT, SIEMENS PLC, REST, DBConnector and many others.
