Direct connection to InTouch or InSQL tags with time or event-based sampling;
Mapping of user-defined variables to InTouch tags to populate SPC charts with live data;
Attachable to any ODBC or OLEDB database;
Different configurable views of data (status screens, control charts, and exception reports);
Multichart view configurable to display up to 12 SPC charts updated in real-time;
Free-form text comments that can be attached to any data point on a chart;
