FreeSCADA 2.0.0.2

Following our practice to release preview versions we created new package 2.0.0.2. There you can find several new features basically aimed to verify complete flow of creating and monitoring processes. The major features are the following:
  • Added “Run Time” module for executing Designer’s schemas by using data from several data sources: OPC servers and built-in Data Simulator module.

  • There are also a number of new “actions” for linking data with your visual elements: Rotate, Move, Show (changes object’s opacity) and Value modifier (updates value of a complex control like Gauge). So, you could start making real applications.

  • Basic support for importing SVG and XAML graphical vector files. This means that you can get any nice picture created by 3rd party editor and enrich it by animation with your data.

  • Several SVG files added into “Samples” folder.

PS. You need to uninstall earlier version before proceed with the new install.

FreeSCADA 2.0.0.1

New preview version of FreeSCADA 2 has been arrived. It has the following new functionality:
  • Two new graphical primitives: polyline and button control.
  • Added initial implementation of Actions mechanism. It should allow to link data channels with visual appearance of an element. For example you can rotate or move an element depending on channel value. Actions can be added by selecting “ActionTool” and clicking on some element. Data channel name can be specified on Property Browser window. Please let us know whether this method of adding new actions is convenient and expected way or you'd like to do this differently.
  • Now you can import any XAML graphics into your schemas by clicking on "File->Import Graphics" menu item.

FreeSCADA 2.0.0.0

In purposes of collecting feedbacks on early development stage we start regularly publish the latest package based on development branch of FreeSCADA 2. Please send us any thoughts you have. What you do like, what you dislike or other suggestions. Please send your comments to Developers Forum
The first version contains three basic modules: Designer, OPC connectivity plugin and Data Simulation plugin. You could try to create some schema using few basic drawing tools (rectangle, ellipse and text box). On OPC side there is an ability to connect to OPC servers, scan for a list of available channels and view theirs values on “Project variables” window. The same is true for Data Simulation plugin. Have a look.
