Product Name(s): RC-Archive
Product Description: RC-Archive provides application for acquiring and archiving large amounts of trend log data from single and multiple systems. Using RS232 and Ethernet communications, RC-Archive can reside on any PC and pole the trend log data of multiple systems on user defined intervals. A separate archive is generated for each trend log in the host PC and large amounts of historical trend log data may be viewed in the graphical viewer, then exported to one of several file formats for importing into third party software analysis packages. Trending Description: All controllers contain full trend log and runtime log totalization. Current data is stored in the actual controller. Long-term trends can be archived centrally using RC-Archive. Archiving Trend and Report Data: Long-term trends can be archived centrally using RC-Archive. Trending and Reporting File Formats: Dbase IV, and Export to MS Excel/ASC Text. Global Reporting Capability and Standardized Reports: Any controller can trend the points of any other controller. Support for Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE); Object Linking and Embedding (OLE); or equivalent: Yes: Dbase IV ODBC drivers can be used to interface to RC-Archives files.RC-Viewer is an OLE container for MS Excel. RC-Archive trend logs can be exported to MS Excel through OLE.
Product Application(s): All Microsoft Windows Operating systems.
