InduSoft has released Service Pack One of InduSoft Web Studio v8.0, adding improvements to its software. Continuing InduSoft’s vision of any device, any network and any data—this new service pack improves existing HTML5 and custom widget capabilities, introduces an add-on conversion tool for FactoryTalk applications, and enhances IoTView.
Adding to the interoperability of InduSoft Web Studio 8.0 SP1, the HTML5 capabilities have expanded to include horizontal trends. The custom widgets now allow users to host third-party applications within the InduSoft Web Studio environment without necessitating Microsoft-specific Active/X and .NET controls. Engineers can easily create custom widgets using HTML/Jscript. Support for the new Import Wizard for FactoryTalk ME/SE greatly reduces the engineering time required for migrating applications from FactoryTalk to InduSoft Web Studio.
The scalable, platform agnostic IoTView runtime, introduced in InduSoft Web Studio v8.0, has also been enhanced to improve data and connectivity. InduSoft Web Studio 8.0 SP1 includes math scripts and enhancements to database connectivity to execute transactions. These capabilities allow IoTView to collect data at an aggregation point close to the sensors and transmit only the data points requiring attention, all in real time, and then manipulate and transform the data into meaningful information before presenting it. These enhancements to InduSoft Web Studio make it the perfect solution for IIoT, Industry 4.0, and Made in China 2025.
The InduSoft Web Studio v8.0 SP1 release is a natural evolution of the product’s life-cycle, and in this latest service pack version, it remains 100% compatible with applications designed using previous versions. The service pack also includes enhancements to the development environment to further reduce the development time for InduSoft Web Studio applications.
