Broadwin Technology, Inc. develops web-enabled automation software for industrial, energy, manufacturing and building automation applications. BroadWin products integrate with traditional automation and control systems to provide leading-edge information technology supporting web browsers and remote software administration.
enables companies to operate more efficiently with innovative real-time automation
software utilizing standard web browsers.
Broadwin, incorporated in December 2000, is headquartered in
Milpitas, California, 47 miles south of downtown San
Francisco, in the Silicon Valley.
The company recently introduced WebAccess, the industry’s first fully
web browser-based software package for human-machine interfaces (HMI), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).
Using a standard Web Browser, Internet Explorer 6 or 7, users can view and control automation equipment used in manufacturing facilities, industrial process plants, electric power stations and building automation systems. Data is displayed in real-time with dynamically updated graphics using full motion animation.
BroadWin also develops communications drivers that enable
personal computers to communicate with automation hardware.
The unique feature, which distinguishes WebAccess from the competition, is that all engineering, database configuration, graphics building and software administration can be performed using a standard web browser as well. WebAccess enables engineers, integrators and vendors with the ability to support their systems remotely over an intranet or the Internet using an ordinary web browser.
The Engineering Tool is
independent of the software version installed at customers’
site. (An ordinary web browser is the engineering tool!)

WebAccess is available in multiple languages including English,
Korean, simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese.
Broadwin develops software for desktop computers, handheld computers,
PDA and laptops running Microsoft Windows CE, 2000,

Demand for BroadWin software is strongest from the building
automation market in the United States and Japan, the
semiconductor market in Taiwan and markets in mainland China.
Demand for building automation systems continue to grow in the United
States and Japan, driven by energy deregulation, increasing energy costs, the desire to “aggregate” multiple buildings for electric rate discounts and the need to enhance facility
automation with advanced information technology. The software tools provided by Broadwin are targeted to meet the needs of this growing market segment.
Demand for automation software is growing rapidly in mainland
China, driven by strong industrial development and infrastructure
build-out. China has the only economy in the world expected to grow at 8% per annum over the next few years.
As a new market in a rapidly developing country, the
marketplace for automation software is relatively empty
compared to the US and Europe with no established
leaders. Further, China is interested in incorporating leading-edge technology into its industrial sector.
Broadwin is specifically targeting the mainland China market. Broadwin has
recently completed a number of successful installations in mainland China,
and has opened a China branch office, with sales, marketing,
software development, engineering and technical support.
