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

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
