The visualization software includes updated operating system support for Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista Business Edition, and Windows Server 2008. FactoryTalk View ME also adds support for Windows Vista Home Basic. A new application documenter provides comprehensive documentation of HMI applications, and shows where HMI tags and direct tag references are used throughout the application. The updated software includes faceplates for the new Advanced Process Control (APC) instructions introduced in version 17 of the vendor’s RSLogix 5000 software. The software now supports parameter-passing capabilities, allowing for more powerful graphic reuse options and more effective use of the built-in set of Logix-integrated faceplates.
