Surrey, BC – Efficient Building Automation Corporation has released software updates to both Network Integrator (NI) and Visual Integrator (VI), as well as Device Support 2.5 installation package, all available immediately. Highlights from these releases include the following:
NI and VI 4.1.231 (SP2)
- Support for graphics templates in the Web Project Manager
- Better integration of the Graphics Editor with the Web Project Manager, which allows the LNS Object Tree to be maintained between editing sessions
- Improved stability and performance of the web client, especially when retrieving large data sets (trends, alarms) from the server
- Improved license usability: Added ability to deactivate without calling EBAC (so licenses can be moved from one machine to another – the number of times is limited), and a 30-day reminder notice when a time-limited license is about to expire
Device Support Version 2.5
- New version of firmware for UHC-400 that supports Modbus, and the ability to store/backup the program source in the controller
- Integrated browser into the Catalyst editor
- Improved usability of the 300 series LNS plug-ins:
- Circon BASIC has been separated into a stand-alone plug-in
- Each plug-in instance runs as a separate process, which improves the stability and performance (especially while tuning PID loops)
