Changes in security setting function and other measures enhance security when PCs and network devices are used as HMIs. A new function has also been added that coordinates modifications to user accounts with an IT management system. This makes it easier to modify and delete a user account when an operator is transferred or retired, thereby reducing the risk of unauthorized access. The batch management package for Centum systems has been updated and released as VP Batch, and operation screens have been reconfigured to improve ease of use. New I/O modules and signal conditioner cards that support the Hart communication protocol have been added, and are compatible with legacy Centum systems such as Centum-XL and Micro XL.
