Control software bundle promises ergonomic engineering
COPA-DATA has updated its family of software products with the introduction of zenon 7.50, zenon Analyzer 3 and zenon Logic 9. Numerous new features and improvements are designed to simple project configuration and robust runtimes.
The most recent software release from COPA-DATA is not limited to the company’s Operator (HMI) and Supervisor (SCADA) products. It includes new versions of its reporting software, Analyzer, as well as the integrated PLC programming environment, Logic.
“Our objective in software development was always having a flexible, modular, but at the same time fully-integrated, networked system, the strengths of which bear fruit when interacting with one another. To achieve an even better synchronisation of our products, we have presented these bundled into one annual zenon release. Of course, there are separate products behind each zenon release as before, which will continue to be purchased, licensed and used separately,” explains Reinhard Mayr, product manager at COPA-DATA.
The new styles in zenon were created to offer a consistent look and feel in visualisation projects. They combine graphic properties of screen elements and define parameters, such as line thickness, size or colour for the required elements. The centrally-saved styles within a project can then be easily applied to other elements. The result is a consistent design within a project, as well as throughout projects and in multi-user projects. Changes can be made centrally at any time and all linked elements update automatically.>
