  • Added the option to skip meter configuration and liquid product collection for applications that retrieve archives for database publishing.
  • Added Prove data retrieval which supports data records split across multiple archives. This feature currently requires that meter configuration and liquid product information not be collected.
  • Changed OMNI ‘flowing time’ field in archive records to use its native units, which is 500 msec ticks (results in a value of 7200 for a full hour’s flow).

MODBUS SCADAPACK

  • Fixed problem that ignored archive retrieval limits for extended history type.

SCANCOM

  • Fixed problem that caused time synchronization to disregard range settings.
  • Fixed problem that could cause a crash on short response frames.
  • Improved logic for handling spurious and out-of-order response frames.

TOTALFLOW

  • First general release with liquid support. When retrieving data from liquid meters the ‘Extra Data’ options should be enabled.
  • Included logic to support ‘Industry Canada’ firmware.
  • Added an OPC item and command that will test communication.
  • Fixed problem that could cause repeated polling after an ‘error 15’ condition.
  • Changed ‘flowing time’ field in archive records to use its native units of Seconds.

  • Fixed problem that didn’t consider ‘end of batch’ timestamps when determining the last record in the file.
  • Added Shrink Factor field for liquid CFX files.

DATABASE

  • Improved table creation logic.

Server

DATA SERVER

  • Added support for DCOM anonymous logon.
  • Fixed problem that didn’t link new OPC items to existing items from other clients when an alias was used.

  • Fixed problem that made the ‘Display object full name’ option lose its setting.
  • Fixed viewable data in Configuration Change report.
  • Fixed problem in object exporter that could miss String object references.
  • Fixed problem in Queue Viewer that could display the currently polling device in the wrong location in the queue.
