ClearSCADA

Systems running on server hardware need to use server operating systems such as Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2008 R2. Server operating systems are designed for servicing entire systems rather than individual computers or small networks and so are better suited for larger ClearSCADA systems with more than two clients.

Systems running on desktop hardware should run desktop operating systems such as Windows 8 or Windows 7. Desktop operating systems are designed for user interaction on the computer on which they are installed.

Desktop operating systems should not be used for servers with more than two clients as the TCP/IP security measures in these operating systems can cause significant delays.

Refer to the following table for supported Operating System versions:

ClearSCADA also requires Internet Explorer 9 (32-bit), 10 (32 bit) or 11 (32-bit) for both software installation and fully-functional web-based operation. The new WebX User Interface available from ClearSCADA 2015 R1 is accessible from any HTML5 browser for viewing of Trends, Alarm Lists, Event Lists, and Queries from various types of phone, tablet or laptop.

Web Server
The Web server available in ClearSCADA 2017 is 64-bit only and therefore not available to install on 32-bit computers. This feature must be installed on the server(s) to use the new WebX User Interface.

The original integrated WebX is still available for both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.
