A new web server, data-logger historian, "alias" database for long tag name support, expanded soft-logic support, and a "keyless" software protection system are among enhancements that TA Engineering Co. recently added to its AIMAX for Enterprise software. These improvements use Microsoft's DCOM (distributed component object model) and ActiveX; SQL (structured query language) database support; and the TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/Internet protocol) networking functions of the Winsock (Windows Sockets) 2.0 specification.

"These new enhancements represent TA Engineering's commitment to be at the forefront of automation technology. Our company strategy is to provide the latest high-tech features at a low price. This allows our customers to appreciate the high performance of AIMAX, without being financially burdened," says Dr. T.A. Lu, TA's president and ceo. "For example, we are one of the first to provide ActiveX and DCOM functionality in our web server."

AIMAX for Enterprise is the latest human-machine interface software package designed for both large- and small-scale network applications. Following the guidelines set forth in Microsoft's Zero Administration for Windows (ZAW) initiative, AIMAX for Enterprise offers a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) in developing and managing HMI software. TA Engineering's TCO strategy is based on the Win32 API and Windows NT Server BackOffice, which allows the ZAW functions to be integrated into the process control environment. An added advantage, AIMAX software allows users to remotely login to the plant environment for remote management and run-time control. The environment is secured using a combination of Windows NT security and AIMAX Domain Network security.
