Omni flow computer reports...

We released a new version of the HMI yesterday. It adds support for retrieving the reports from an Omni flow computer. All of the report types can be retrieved. This release was for RS-232 support. TCP/IP support is in process and should be available very soon.

Here is a screen shot of the report viewer calendar selection. The green dot on the calendar indicates one or more reports for that day have been retrieved and stored on disk.

Analog board released...

We released the 13 channel analog input card. A link to the data sheet is here: Data sheet

Work continues on report collection from the Omni flow computer.

A new feature was added in configuration mode to allow for easier checking for software updates. A menu was added that will check for a new installer. If one is detected the user can elect to download and run the installer or select manual mode to download and save the installer to disk.

Support for Mitsubishi Q series protocol is now on the list to be added. The hardware is in transit and should be here later this week.

For graphics we added a new image list animation. A value is associated with a file name and when the tagname value equals one of the values in the list, the image is displayed.

We also added the ability to import icons into the button images.
