The lack of vertical grid lines is actually a show-stopper for using PI Vision in some departments over here....
Using Attributes reduces the number of PI Tags, so this functionality is very needed.
Just like Jason wrote; Analysis doesn't replace, but appends. And I would like to have the replace option added.
Role-based edit permissions on displays is in development for the PI Vision 4.x release. This will allow you to give multiple users permissions to edit the same display.
This would be very useful for us. Any updates yet?
Can you share with us any info about your use case for sending data back to the SCADA system? For example, what is the purpose of that data? How many tags and how often will you send?
We are currently sending data of around 200 tags to the SCADA system, but this number will rapidly increase in the near future. Frequency is depending on the data’s purpose but is as small as “once every 3 seconds”.
We are controlling small, decentralized systems connected to the Scada system utilizing different systems doing complex analysis based on heuristics and near real time data processing. These are hard to in cooperate directly into the SCADA System thus we use the PI System to send a set of commands and set points to the SCADA System.
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, this has not been completed. It needs to be re-prioritized for a later release.
In response to Nitin Agarwal, "Hi Arie - As Roger Palmen mentioned belo..."
The 5 seconds latency is no problem, it's actually fine. But our second event (with the same timestamp) comes in 1 or 2 minutes after the first event, and we also have cases were the delay is about 10 minutes. So I would expect Analysis would be triggered again. But it seems that the Analysis is only triggered if the timestamp of the latest even is greater then the previous event.
In my humble opinion is should be greater or equal to the previous timestamp, or the latency should be adjustable (like in ACE).
In response to Nitin Agarwal, "Hello Arie - I am trying to understand y..."
What you describe here, is exactly what I expect: " If we were to evaluate the analysis again (when the second input arrives at 14:02), would you expect the new (correct) output value to replace the one that was previously written?"
Native integration to MATLAB Production Server is planned for AF 2018 release.
Please contact me directly if you have specific use cases or want to be involved with the beta.
Let me know if this is sufficient.
Although native MATLAB integration will be available in the 2018 release, I’m reminded that it is not technically comparable to “custom functions”, thus reverting the status label.
Because the ACE wizard isn't working anymore in VS2015, it would be good to get away from ACE, and make use of the AF Analysis scheduler.
