Diablo Analytical has released Version 188.8.131.52 of the EZReporter Software. This is a minor release that is primarily recommended if you are using either the INFICON Micro GC Fusion Connector or ABB TotalFlow PCCU7 Connector. The significant enhancements are listed below. A complete list of fixes and enhancements is provided in the release notes.
[+] [ALL] Added an InstrumentStatus parameter that can be displayed in the monitored parameter table. You specify the desired instrument and can create a text alarm to notify you when the status has changed to a particular state. Using the new Reverse Comparison option you can also trigger an alarm when the status has changed to something other than a particular state (for example, trigger an alarm when the instrument status changes to something other than “Connected”).
[+] [ALL] The INFICON Micro GC Fusion Connector has been enhanced to attempt to re-connect to the GC automatically when the connection has been lost for some reason. There is a new “Connect Retries” option in the connector settings that allows you to set the number of retries that should be attempted. The retries are attempted in conjunction with “Check for Results”. So the re-connection attempts will take place at the Result Polling Interval (every 2 seconds by default). Consequently, the length of time retries will be attempted is approximately the number of retries multiplied by the result polling interval. The default number of retries is 30 (which is 1 minute with the default 2-second result polling interval). The retries are displayed in the “Status Message” column of the Fusion instrument in the instruments table ((Connect Retry [1 of 30]”).
[+] [ALL] Updated the ABB PCCU Connector manual to clarify issues associated with the PCCU installation folder location. If the installer finds PCCU7 installed, it will assign read/write permissions to the “spreadsh” folder.
