Rockwell Automation releases FactoryTalk View v9.0

February 15, 2017 —The latest version of FactoryTalk View software from Rockwell Automation is designed to improve the operator’s experience with data-driven information while also delivering design-time productivity via tighter integration with the control system.

FactoryTalk View v9.0 software empowers operators to make decisions with access to TrendPro, a trending tool. TrendPro helps operators to access real-time data with built-in analysis tools. The tool showcases contextualized production data by pulling from a variety of sources that were once difficult to access: FactoryTalk View SE data logs, FactoryTalk Live Data and FactoryTalk Historian data. The latest release provides operators drag-and-drop capabilities that bring trends front and center.

By taking advantage of the Integrated Architecture portfolio, FactoryTalk View v9.0 software builds on the ability to directly connect with Allen-Bradley ControlLogix tags. New tag-extended properties eliminate the need for redundant engineering work. With tag-extended properties, developers have direct access to tag descriptions, engineering units and min/max settings. This leaves less room for duplication errors and streamlines the design process.

Additionally, the tag-extended properties enable simplified language switching. Instead of requiring a developer to program language strings within the HMI, translated content can now be directly accessed from the controller, further saving design time.

FactoryTalk View v9.0 software also introduces RecipePro+. This new recipe manager offers a way to download and upload multiple machine parameters at once. The RecipePro+ editor includes a user-friendly interface to create and edit recipe files, and allows for importing and exporting files. For Rockwell Software RSView 32 users looking to modernize their HMI SCADA, RecipePro+ will greatly streamline migration to FactoryTalk View SE software.
