Several usability improvements for NAPCON Configurator, the interactive engineering tool for NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer, for instance
Improved support for more complicated recipes, allowing NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer configuration and structure to vary based on the product quality, feed type or other quantity that describes the operating mode.
Improved handling of the configuration project file, such as autosave and enhanced multi-user support
Improved procedure and logic of the NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer configuration update to the NAPCON Informer database.
Automatic compatibility with NAPCON Improve dashboards
NAPCON Improve Operator Interface
The web-based operator user interface, NAPCON Improve Operator Interface, has been further developed based on customer feedback, for instance
Dynamic presentation of the present and past operating point on a graph
Enhanced multi-user support
Customisable CV switches
Trending of CV and MV future predictions
NAPCON Controller and Optimizer
Minor improvements in NAPCON Controller’s optimization algorithm
NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer benefit from all improvements of NAPCON Informer, as NAPCON Informer is the OPC UA server for all NAPCON Controller and NAPCON Optimizer applications
