InduSoft's upgraded Web Studio v7.0, which is designed to improve human and machine communications. Courtesy: InduSoftInduSoft has released a major upgrade for InduSoft Web Studio v7.0, adding new features to their software package.

The Service Pack 1 upgrade includes features such as multiple language development support for Japanese, French, Portuguese and German along with SSL email (support for Gmail), new symbol libraries, new drivers and much more. Service Pack 1 is provided free of charge to existing InduSoft Web Studio v7.0 customers, and can be downloaded via the Internet.

To help customers optimize machine and process performance, the upgrade provides statistical process control (SPC) to the already feature rich trending capabilities. Without making any modifications to their project, users can enable the SPC capabilities of the trend to display average, minimum, maximum and standard deviation for process values with no programming necessary.

With this upgrade, InduSoft also introduces a new (optional) OPC module that supports XML applications with full control over communication. Users are able to send and read any process variable on demand, and control when items are enabled or disabled. Automatic expansion makes it exceptionally easy to configure arrays. The new OPC module adds more flexibility by supporting multi-threading capability, allowing users to have multiple communication threads even when connecting to the same server.

New communication tools improve human and machine communications. To provide a variety of email options, users now have the ability to send secure emails using SSL over various providers such as Gmail. New (optional) IEC/DNP3 drivers provide efficient and reliable communications for the electrical and utilities industries.

With the aim of faster and easier deployment, Service Pack 1 implements tag integration with CoDeSys that enables users to easily use CoDeSys tags inside InduSoft. Adding even more flexibility, new function support VBScript parallel execution gives users the choice to run global procedures in a multithreaded or linear execution.

InduSoft Web Studio licensing options previously supported 150 to 512,000 tags. Service Pack 1 adds the choice to go up to 10 million tags. 

A customizable product installer lets users turn their applications into products they can distribute to their customers, or deploy quickly on their own equipment. This saves disk space by customizing only the options users want to install.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
