• I need to analyze data from different physical variables (pressure, temperature, flow, etc ..) in a single trend. Each variable must have its Y axis customized to allow proper process analysis. I have not found a way to customize the scale of the historical or real trend chart.
    Add an expression might be a way out, but it would be a lot of work.
    Does anyone know an easier way?
    Is there another tool that offers this feature in RTIP?

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to read the iFIX Historical data using an OPC HDA Client?  We just recently upgraded from iFIX 3.5 to iFIX 5.5.  Do I need the EDA Toolkit or the iFIX Historical Data Access Toolkit?  Is there another method to make these historical data files available via OPC HDA?

    Thanks!

  • I'm experiencing slow point updates on a Cimplicity 9.0 project. Info on setup:

    -Redundant server PCs with 4 viewer PCs
    -About 1200 points
    -Communicating with RX7i PLC using S90_Triplex protocol

    With only one viewer running, the points update much faster. The update rate slows down significantly as each additional viewer is started. With 4 viewers running, points are updating only once every 1-2 seconds with the scan rate set to 20 ticks (0.2 seconds). I was thinking it may be due to lack of RAM in the server PCs (they have 4GB each), but when monitoring the system performance the RAM usage is only about 50%, and CPU usage is about 5%. If I stop the project, RAM usage remains around 50%. I already tried reducing the screen cache from 8 to 0 and this had no effect.

  • I have an installation with two SCADA iFIX 5.8 with enhanced failover and Historian 6.0 Server.
    In both SCADA I have installed OPC A&E Server and iFIX AE Collector in redundant mode. Apparently everything works properly, in the Historian client I can view alarms, but in the OPCAELog_ddmmaaaa.txt file after the message "Starting application in UI mode" continuously appears the warning "Error Deactivating". I do not know if this warning is important and how can I fix this error.
    Thanks for your attention.
