  • A new alarm system architecture provides across-the-board performance improvements; up to 90% improvement over previous versions. Native sequence of events (SOE) and alarm summary views of data ensure that operators have immediate access to process-critical information, in a format which meets their needs. Alarm counts further provide a powerful means for operators to quickly hone in on the root cause of an issue.
  • Project backup, maintenance and upgrade has been streamlined to reduce engineering effort.
  • Extensibility via Microsoft .NET Framework allow users to interface directly with external Microsoft .NET assemblies through the Cicode programming language. This enables an extension of functionality and interoperability by leveraging Microsoft technologies.
