HMI trending update...

Trending/logging of data values has been part of the HMI from the initial release. Trending was accomplished by storing data values, at a user configured frequency (1 second or greater), to an internal database. The “logged” data can be linked to a graphic trend element and displayed as a scrolling trend. The data can also be exported to various formats.

Today we added a feature to allow a graphic trend element to connect to a database, using ODBC, and fetch the stored data. An external program can be used to store the data to the database or the HMI ODBC data logger feature can be used. The ODBC data logger can store data at 100 millisecond or greater intervals.

HMI update 02/22/2016

This update covers three areas of the HMI.

·     Support for string reading/writing was added to the GE SRTP driver.

·      The SMS notification logic was retested and changes made to provide for phone/modem differences.

·      A new scripting feature allows for a script to read and parse a CSV (comma separated values), tab delimited or XLS (Excel) file. After the file is read, the values are available for any script to access for reading/writing and save to disk in the same or different format. Also, an empty object can be created, filled with data and exported to a file.
