Longwatch, Norwood, MA, has introduced the Operator’s Console Recorder, a software module that automatically records images being shown on multiple HMI or SCADA operator’s displays. The module takes signals directly from each HMI screen’s video software driver, so it records the actual video being sent to the HMI. The software can accommodate video signals from an unlimited number of HMIs to show what operators were watching at the time of an event or alarm.

Video images can be combined with the automatic data mapping capability of the Longwatch Video Historian, so the recorder can automatically retrieve and replay operator displays by clicking on a time-based alarm or system message.
