Each VTScada installation has the ability to become a server for clients looking to connect to the HMI (Human-Machine Interface)*. Since VTScada 11.2 there have been three different server addresses available to the client, each is optimized for a specific type of device or experience. Each of the three client connections is described below:
VTScada Internet Client (VIC)
Best for users who regularly connect to their SCADA server and are using a Windows® computer. The VIC is a Windows® only application which connects to a VTScada server and provides the client with a view the HMI which is identical to that running on the server. The VIC has access to the historian, reporting tools, tag browser, and security manager. Learn More
VTScada Anywhere Client (Anywhere)
Most users don’t realize that the Anywhere Client can be configured to look and feel like an app or the VIC. The video below shows how this can be done in the Google® Chrome browser.

Mobile Internet Client (MIC)
The original HTML client, the MIC is best for users with smaller mobile devices or those who are hypersensitive to data usage. It runs in a web browser and automatically converts a VTScada application page into a list of tag statuses with the ability to show trends in an on-screen historical data viewer. Learn More
