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.

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 dataloggers, 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

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. 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.

  2. RTMC Pro has an Invert Axis property for all axes on a chart. By inverting the bottom axis, the most recent data, along with its time stamp, is displayed on the left with the oldest on the right.

  3. Consider using IIF(). Here is an example of using the last value instead of the -6999 in a min run over a day with temp avg:

    Alias(X, "Server:CR1000.HOUR.Temp_F_Avg"); StartRelativeToNewest (nsecPerDay, OrderCollected ); MinRunOverTime(IIF(X = -6999, last(X), X), Timestamp(X), nsecPerDay)

  4. With the project open in the designer screen, click the project menu item and Configure Snapshot & FTP. Files can be written to whichever local drive is desired or transferred via FTP.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
