ViewDet – Service tool for application debugging
ViewDet is an autonomous service tool for Windows. It complements and extends the possibilities of the DetStudio development environment in terms of application monitoring, debugging and setting in the control system. The programme can also be used as a simple visualisation to a limited extent.
Its basic feature is the option of reading and writing of individual values of database variables and aliases (essentially the same possibilities as in “watch” in DetStudio). Furthermore, ViewDet is able to read, display, print and export archive and operation logs from the control system as well as remember their history.
Archives can either be displayed in the form of a chart or a diagram. Other features include creation and display of archives emerging directly in PC by periodic reading of certain values from the process station. The variables displayed can be placed deliberately in a so called “scene” with a pre-defined background picture – a very simple visualisation can be thus created. The locks prevent the user from making unwanted changes to variables and ViewDet display parameterspozadí. ViewDet also allows complete editing of IP configurations of stations connected to the industrial Ethernet.
Main ViewDet benefits include:
the option to gather display objects in scenes, fast toggling between scenes
static text and variable
easy editing of time plans by means of the graphic method
the communication period can be set for each element individually
user and admin modes – protection against unwanted changes
support for aliases
printing scenes and elements
exports of archived data
