Wonderware Online InSight: December 2016 update


Wonderware Online InSight: December 2016 Release

Consider it an end of year gift from us to you... some exciting new capabilities are now available in Wonderware Online InSight just in time for the festive season.

So, what's new in December 2016?

  • Expanded datasource support - CSV 
  • Better handling of accumulator and counter tags - Meter tracking mode
  • Chart improvements - New Y-axis option for "stacked" charts plus simpler tag control
  • Administration enhancements

Expanded datasource support - CSV

Wonderware Online InSight can import data directly from a CSV file so Administrators can now enter data from any source capable of outputting CSV. Choose from either the super easy drag-and-drop option, or if you want to automate or script the upload you can choose the convenient URL interface. This makes getting your time-series data into the system simpler than ever before. Check it out:  https://online.wonderware.com/ 

Better handling of accumulator and counter tags - Meter tracking mode

The new meter tracking mode works with your accumulator tags so that you can effectively chart metered data over time, for instance energy consumption or parts per hour.  Also known as counter retrieval mode, this new capability allows you to better track production over time and improve visibility into your process overall.  

Chart improvements - new Y-axis for "stacked" charts

We have made significant enhancements to our charting capabilities including the introduction of stacked charts. By changing the way the Y-axis handles information you can now manipulate your content to show relationships between related tags. This is particularly helpful if you have different units for different tags such as temperature or pressure, simply click in the interactive Y-axis and select how you want your data displayed. For example:

  • Display each tag on its own chart, stacked one on top of the other
  • Display all tags on one chart with one Y-axis
  • Display each tag on the one chart against multiple Y-axis

Chart improvements - Simpler tag control

Another charting improvement introduced in the December product release is the ability to click tags on/off directly from the chart legend. This means you can quickly and easily show, or hide, information from your chart without having to access the underlying data. And, should you wish to permanently remove a tag from the chart display you can do this by deleting it from the chart's data pane.

 
Administration enhancements

We have introduced a new Integration Settings tile that provides easier access to the O-Data API URL, documentation and examples on how to use it.
