The vendor has also worked with Specter Instruments to validate and integrate support for Win911 in iFix, allowing for alarms to be sent to paging devices and phones, similar to the Pager option that exists for Cimplicity. Also new is the Persistent Array Block, which allows users to store up to 60 values per block that can then be referenced in their applications. “Customers now have a purpose-built area for storing all types of values, from integers to scientific notation,” says Roy Kok, senior HMI/SCADA product manager at the vendor. “As they build applications, they can now isolate variables that change from application to application to one area for improved documentation and troubleshooting.” Customers that subscribe to the vendor’s Proficy GlobalCare will be notified of the availability of the Productivity Packs for download.
The second Productivity Pack is available for the vendor’s Proficy HMI/SCADA iFix, Cimplicity and View customers. New features include Alarm & Event Express, an e-mail notification tool for sending alarms to users based on the OPC A&E standard that works with Cimplicity, iFix and View products.
