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.

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. 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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. RTMC Pro comes with a web server and a publish-to-web function to publish whole sets of graphs to the web. RTMC Pro also enables the output of snapshots (images) that can be used in user-created web pages.

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

  7. There are options to include a custom message that can be sent instead of, or in addition to, the standard text.

  8. 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.
