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.

  • 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

Technical 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. For best compatibility between RTMC or RTMC Pro projects and RTMC Run-Time, the version numbers of the applications should match.

  • Projects created with a newer version of RTMC or RTMC Pro will not run in an older version of RTMC Run-Time. As an example, a project created with RTMC Pro 5.0 will not run in RTMC Run-Time 4.0.
  • Projects created with an older version of RTMC or RTMC Pro will open and run, but component size or placement may not match the original project, requiring the project to be edited.

An upgrade for RTMC Pro must be purchased separately if you have these earlier versions of RTMC Pro.

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

  3. RTMC Pro can use the DAT file instead of the cache as the source of data (historical graphing).

  4. 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.

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

  6. Yes. RTMC Pro includes options to export entire screens or specific objects. These images can then be incorporated into a separate web page.

  7. 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)

  8. The CSI Web Server can only be configured to be a stand-alone web server. RTMC Run-Time does have the ability to periodically generate web pages from the project and to transfer these files to an FTP server. To use the interactivity that is possible with the CSI Web Server, use iframes in web pages that can reference pages served by the CSI Web Server.
