Overview

Current Version: 5.0

RTMC Pro is used to create and run graphical screens that provide real-time monitor and control capabilities. You can easily design displays using its large library of components including alarms, switches, status bars, charts, and gauges. Simply select a component, place it on the workspace, and specify the data value to be displayed. Each component has properties that can be set by the user giving maximum design control.

This separately purchased product is an enhanced version of the RTMC client that is included with LoggerNet, LoggerNetAdmin, and RTDAQ.

Detailed Description

RTMC Pro, an enhanced version of RTMC, includes a development and a run-time program. Specifically, RTMC Pro provides the following:

  • The ability to use LNDB databases, Campbell Scientific data files, HTTP data loggers, virtual data sources, and multiple LoggerNet Servers as data sources
  • The CSI Web Server for viewing your data from a web browser
  • The ability to generate reports
  • More graphical components. For example, more alarms, switches, graphs, gauges, and layout components are available
  • Components to run/open a file, run a Cora-Script command (LoggerNet command), or view a web page.
  • Images of the project that can be saved and transferred to a web server automatically
  • The ability to send email messages or execute programs when alarms occur. Alarm activity can be logged to a file
  • More settings for components existing in both RTMC and RTMC Pro, which enables more design control

RTMC Run-Time and the CSI Web Server can run projects created with RTMC Pro's development program. However, RTMC Pro 2.x development tool is not compatible with the RTMC Run-Time and the standard RTMC development tool in LoggerNet 4.x or higher. An upgrade for RTMC Pro must be purchased separately if you have these earlier versions of RTMC Pro.

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. RTMC Pro 5.0 includes the following enhancements:

    Hardware Acceleration

    • The desktop versions now use Direct2D to draw the components, making for a faster, more comfortable user interface. This also removes the pixilation that we were seeing with GdiPlus.

    Graphs

    • We are now using an in-house software package to draw our graphs. We are no longer dependent on third-party software (TeeCharts) to draw our graphs.

    Different Look and Feel

    • All the components have a different look and feel than they used to.
    • Many of the components scale differently as well, as the component changes size.
    • There are many new settings in many of the new components.

    New Feature: Color Theme

    • The user can now change the look of multiple components at the same time, or even change all of the components in the whole project at the same time. 
    • All components have the same background options that include gradients, transparencies, and borders.
    • Each component can be rotated as well, even if it is within a group of other components.

    New Feature: Graphs

    • Graphs now have areas graph options, and better bar graphs.
    • A constant reference line (or points) is now available.
    • The series lines can change colors over different thresholds.
    • There are more options with the marks.
    • Wind direction

    New Feature: Multistate Alarms

    • The background, text, image, and numeric values can now all be set for multistate alarms.
    • The color of the standard image for all the alarms can be changed, as well as background colors.

    Bug Fixes

    • Multiple bug fixes along the way, some of them in our currently released product, especially those dealing with machines with different DPIs (i.e., laptops or Surfaces).

    New Components

    • Interpolation Map
    • Lines (straight lines, arrow lines, arced lines, and Bezier curved lines)
    • Multistate Images

    New Components that Will Be in Next Version

    These are new features that have been implemented in the Desktop version, but not in Publisher yet. In the interest of releasing this software, with less time to code completion and less testing, we will remove these options from the Desktop version with the hope that someday we will be able to implement them in Publisher for a future RTMC release.

    • Contour Graphs
    • Array Graphs
    • Profile Graphs
    • Graphs where the domain axis is on the Y axis
    • Color Fill Graphs.
    • Gated Valve
    • Some of the rocker switches
    • Some of the dial options.
  2. As LoggerNet collects data from a table, the table record number, which normally increases by one with each record stored, can get reset to zero through various mechanisms, such as the data logger recompiling its program. Because of this, the record number alone is not sufficient to identify a record within the cache table of LoggerNet. LoggerNet uses the file mark number to keep these discontinuities straight. Each time that a missed event is detected or the record number regresses, LoggerNet increments the file mark number that it uses to store new records.

    Starting with LoggerNet 4.1, this parameter can be specified with a value of &HFFFFFFFF. The LoggerNet server interprets this by looking for the starting record number in the latest file mark.

  3. The report range is selected by using the forward and back arrows.

  4. The snapshots are generated in either instance—whether starting the project from RTMC Developer or RTMC Run-Time.

  5. In RTMC Pro, there is a workspace option to auto-size in runtime. This fills up the window and sizes the content as needed. This option is very useful when developing projects to be run on more than one display.

  6. The table component of RTMC Pro has the option to display the newest data at the top of the table. It can then be set up to save images of that table component or the entire screen (for use in an HTML page), or the RTMC Pro project itself can be run in the RTMC Web Server.

    Using RTMC Pro Dev, select the New Data At Top table option property.

  7. The report intervals are open-closed. If a three-hour chart with hourly data is shown, whether three or four points are shown depends on the interval. On an open-closed interval, only three points are shown—one for each hour. On a closed-closed interval, there are four points, but the first point actually represents data outside the three-hour interval. RTMC Pro was designed to use open-closed intervals.

  8. Yes. Use the StartRelativeToNewest function as a prefix to the averaging expression to specify how far back to go in the data when the project is first started.

  9. Shape rotation does not currently work in RTMC Pro. There is a work around, however. Save the shape as an image from the shape property page using the disc icon at the bottom right of the screen. Then load the saved image into an image component that has rotation capabilities.
