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.
·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.
