Version 7.1

Build 302 2019/01/19

WARNING:

This installation requires a change to the existing database.

Connections

ALL CONNECTIONS

  • Corrected an issue where the Queue Viewer can see ‘orphaned’ polls when switching between primary and secondary connections.
  • Added logic to prevent task starvation that causes a high volume of high priority tasks to prevent lower priority tasks from running.

TCPIP

  • Added new OPC Item ‘CurrentHost’ to indicate which Host Address is current.
  • Corrected an issue where the lost connection timeout was not always accurate.
  • Corrected an issue where queue viewer messages were not being removed upon completion when switching between primary and alternate connections.

TCPLISTEN

  • Corrected an issue where only some of the devices start to poll when at least ‘max sessions’ of them are due at once.

TCPPOOL

  • Corrected an issue where lost connection timeout was not properly reset on valid response.
  • Corrected an issue where demand stayed on after polling failed due to a lack of response.
  • Improved TCP Pool so that it can try another modem port within the same poll cycle if the previous modem failed initialization.
  • Corrected an issue where modem health was incorrect when the ‘Release when done’ option was used.

Protocols

ALL PROTOCOLS

  • Added continuous scan.
  • Added the ability to turn on continuous scan for a set number of seconds.
  • Removed obsolete property ‘SwitchDelay’. This may cause error messages during startup. These error messages can be safely ignored. These properties can be removed from the database by running the ‘DbCleanup.sql’ script generated during ACM startup. This file can be found in the ACM data directory.

BSAP

  • Corrected an issue where polling failed to resume after the device was interrupted by another device on the same connection.
  • Added support for ControlWave devices to use list numbers greater than 255.

CONTROLLOGIX

  • Corrected an issue with the LEN string write option.
  • Corrected an issue where internal tags were causing the connection to attempt connection even when disabled.
  • Corrected an issue where the tag discovery process was receiving an incomplete message and crashing.
  • Added support for the connection tag modifiers < C1> and < C2>.
  • Improved CONTROLLOGIX driver to better handle errors from the RegisterSession command using an EIP encapsulated header.
  • Corrected an issue with multidimensional writes (tag[0,1]).
  • Important: The option to enable non-listed tags is now defaulted to ‘enabled’. If you have an existing configuration and use the ‘Enable Non-Listed Tag Validation’ option, OPC items not found in the driver’s saved tag file must now have a data type specifier appended to their names (example: MyBool;C1).

DF1 / ABTCP

  • Corrected an issue where polling errors were not being logged.
  • Corrected an issue with PLC5 Serial response.
  • Corrected invalid values for flowing time and low flow cutoff alarms.

  • Improved time synchronization user interface and logging.
  • Corrected an issue where a demand poll would be repeated without being requested.

KIMRAY

  • Improved logging to better inform the user when an archive is misconfigured.

MERCURY

  • Maximized the performance of polls with multi-record history reads.
  • Added Mercury version number to the PGAS publisher.
  • Corrected an issue where using the RR command for Audit Trail collection could result in error.

  • Added the ability to schedule meter configuration polls.
  • Improved the validation of EFM records to not include records with dates in the future.
  • Added default login information.
  • Added new option for mapping of EFM volume.
  • Corrected an issue where OPC item “Status” would display a status of complete when communications are good but the Site id is incorrect.

MODBUS

  • Corrected an issue where a checksum error was causing a crash.
  • Corrected an issue with the MODBUS bit display modifier (L/0.32).
  • Corrected an issue where a time synchronization error was logged when there was no error.
  • Corrected an issue where a “Test Communication” command reported a misleading error message when the device is mis-configured.
  • Improved the polling process when a CRC error is returned from a device.
  • Improved efficiency of write requests when data is of disparate types.
  • Added MODBUS Broadcast Mode.
    Important: Devices with an address value of zero are treated as write-only broadcast devices.
  • Corrected an issue where the register count and byte count included in Modbus multi-register write messages was not consistent with the number of bytes and registers actually written.
  • Added support for low priority writes < lpw> and delayed writes < dw>.
  • Corrected an issue where auto recovery would attempt to switch communications back to the primary schedule before the current poll is complete.
  • Corrected an issue where the demand flag is stuck ‘on’.
  • Improved MODBUS driver to avoid a crash that could occur upon receipt of invalid data.
