Copa-Data is releasing zenOn version 6.22, which benefits from a fully configurable alarm manager that allows users to have customised alarm display themes to improve readability and make the alarm pages comply with given colour usage by an end user or manufacturer. This is further enhanced by the use of a 'traffic light' scheme against each alarm that can also be configured to meet with localised use of colour.
Furthermore, the version 6.22 zenOn Web Server Pro for CE enables up to three browser clients to be connected to zenOn when running on Windows CE. This allows the application and other information of a zenOn-controlled machine using Windows CE to be seen on a standard browser, thereby providing a significant cost reduction in providing this service.
With the Remote Desktop, users can view and operate the desktop of another computer or terminal; this is a very useful feature, especially for commissioning. Available on all zenOn runtime stations (CE, PC, except Web clients), this new feature is included in the basic zenOn package. To use the 'view and operate' functionality, a Windows PC-based OS is necessary.
Duncan Fletcher, Copa-Data's UK Managing Director, says: "zenOn 6.22 is a compact but powerful release; the truly flexible alarm system is easy to deploy and facilitates better operation, while the extended Windows CE capabilities yet again define zenOn as the SCADA HMI of choice for machine builders and all those looking for uncompromised value."
