Current Version: 4.3.2

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.

Benefits and Features

  • Large library of components: alarms, switches, status bars, charts, gages, and more
  • Interactive components (switches, drop lists, digital set points, dials) let you toggle flags or set data logger values directly from your RTMC display
  • Securely monitor and control your data from virtually anywhere by publishing your RTMC projects to your intranet or the Internet using the included Web Publisher and CSI Web Server
  • View data from multiple LoggerNet servers, Campbell Scientific data files, LNDB databases, HTTP data loggers, and virtual data sources all in one RTMC project
  • Send email messages or execute programs when alarms are triggered
  • Create reports that allow you to easily step through historical data and export an RTMC screen either on a schedule or manually
  • Use the extensive math and logic expression library to convert and/or combine your data for display


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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to RTMCPRO: 49

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. The Last() function can be used to compare the current value of a variable with the last value that was loaded. To have the graphic display in a graph, create two separate traces that use an expression similar to the following:

    alias("ln:cr1000.one_hour.temp_degf", temp); IIF(Last(temp) > temp, temp, NOPLOT)

    This expression produces a point if the value is increasing; otherwise, it produces a NAN value, which is ignored by the plot. Specify a trace with the down arrow symbol and a different comparison to plot decreasing values.

    This is easier if all that needs to be shown is the current state of the value compared to the previous. To do this, use an alarm that specifies up arrows and down arrows for the images associated with the on and off states.

  2. 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.

  3. One of the features of RTMC Pro is the ability to embed hotspots inside the project. These hotspots can be embedded with an HTML link within the project and allow the project to specify the value of the href attribute. For example, something similar to the following could be specified for the link attribute:

    javascript:alert("This measurement is helpful for eddy covariance.")

    If the user clicked on that hotspot, the browser would then show the content in an alert dialog.

  4. Ensure that the versions of RTMC products match (same version for Run-Time and Developer).

  5. The 3.1 patch is an upgrade for version 3.0.

    Campbell Scientific offers upgrades within a major version number as downloads from the website, but an upgrade outside of a major version number requires the purchase of RTMCPRO/U.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
