This paper based on facilitating information system integrators to develop supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system customized in agriculture greenhouse, developed a 'Graphical Editor for Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition System in Agriculture Greenhouse' for the establishment of agriculture greenhouse SCADA system. The system provides (1)Open System: the PLC can be the product of any brand, so that the user can no longer spend the extra money to replace hardware to get a customized SCADA system, if the user already has a SCADA system. It can effectively reduce the cost of the system replacement, and can also enhance the quality of agriculture planting. (2)Graphical Editor: SCADA Development Environment provides a convenient and user-friendly graphical user interface that makes information system integrators engineers to immediately establish a customized SCADA system via simply drag the icons. Furthermore, basic settings for the system, such as database connection, device control rule setting, permission setting, alarm setting and other functions, can be easily configured by user through the graphical editor. The main feature of SCADA Development Environment is that provide engineers setting communication between each peripheral device (sensor) and gateway without writing any code, and finally the whole project will automatically generate an executable file which can running on the specified gateway. This system greatly reduces the burden of information system integrator engineer; even the young farmers have relevant knowledge may also establish their SCADA system by themselves.
