New Product Features

Game-changing Performance & Scalability

Reductions of up to 90% in database processing time and server synchronization time, plus improvements to client responsiveness makes this release the new gold standard in performance and reliability!

ViewX Enhancements for Improved Usability
  • Integrated Database Search - spend less time hunting things down in the database!
  • Improved Full Screen Mode, to make the most of your screen real-estate!
  • Locate Open Object in Explorer, to get from that open mimic or configuration form back to the Source object in Database or OPC Explorer
  • Momentary Button - a new button style designed to initiate momentary pulse actions, or perform two actions without scripting or logic!
  • Locking options for the Embedded Alarm List, to keep your operators from accidentally filtering or sorting the Alarm List incorrectly!
Trending Options & Enhancements
  • Historic Alarm Indication - see graphically exactly when your points generated an Alarm, even after the Alarm Limits have been changed!
  • Jump Mode - to maintain a consistent fixed trending interval (e.g. 1 Hour) that 'jumps' to maintain the current time on display.
  • Intelligent Scrolling, so the trend area fills most of the way up before continuous X-axis scrolling kicks in.
  • Local Time used for Trend Aggregate Plots and Historic Tags - the user's Local Time Zone is now used, instead of being constrained to UTC time, correctly calculating trend aggregates and time-based historic calculations.
Online Help has been given a facelift
  • New home screens, for improved navigation.
  • Useful links in page footers, helping you easily browse other topics of interest.
  • Improved page layout and font.
  • Support for tablets and other small-screen devices.

Operational Empowerment
  • Store RTU Data during Point Override, and easily visualise this on a trend.
  • Export Historic Data to Wonderware eDNA Historian.
System Administration
