Changes Since 2004
Home ] Up ]

 

The following additions / modifications were performed since 2004 version:

bulletMultiple Remote Unit Windows capability was added to RUEX. Each remote unit can now be assigned as many windows as needed. This is to accommodate remote units with large number of I/O points, so the latter can be displayed properly.
bulletDNP 3.0 Protocol implementation was completed. A standard driver for DNP devices is now available, offering standard DNP functionality. Dedicated drivers, specific to non-compliant equipment are created as needed by deriving them from the standard driver, and adjusting them accordingly.
bulletMODBUS Protocol handling was updated and reorganized. A standard driver for MODBUS devices is now available, offering standard MODBUS functionality. Dedicated drivers, specific to non-compliant equipment are created as needed by deriving them from the standard driver, and adjusting them accordingly.
bulletDouble Poll command was added to RUEX and MREX. RUEX also has a parameter specifying time delay between the two polls. When double polling an RUEX remote unit or an MREX meter, the first poll is followed by a delay, then another poll is generated automatically.
bulletAll WebLink Components were updated (Manager, Publisher, and Service):
bulletTo make them less cryptic, system components on the left (Selector) side of web pages were renamed from RUEX, LMEX, CCEX, and MREX to SCADA, Load Management, Capacitor Control, and Meter Reading, respectively.
bulletThe left (Selector) side of web pages now fully expands upon first entry, displaying all published NTMC objects at once. This minimizes the number of mouse clicks needed to access the sought information.
bulletSecurity rules were further tightened, while leaving administrative accounts intact with all privileges.
bulletLoad management waiver status is now reported on every Load Management page, including individual load points.
bulletFor every load point LMEX can be programmed to report load state together with Load management waiver status as a single value. This can be used to generate e-mails when that load changes its 'value', i.e. either load state or waiver status, and send them to load point's owner(s).
bullet'Frozen' Operations mode was added to LMEX load points. Load points in 'frozen' mode are ignored by LMEX algorithms just like load points in 'manual' mode. On the other hand, load points in 'frozen' mode can be manipulated by authorized individuals via the web, while loads in 'manual' mode can not. Details of 'frozen' mode functionality can be found here.
bulletLoad point ON / OFF states are now color coded. Colors selected come from NTMC color databases. The values of the latter are defined by NTMC operators.
bulletNumber of points in the graphs is now determined by the relevant parameters in NTMC. For example, the RUEX Analog Point 'Number of Readings' parameter is used to determine the number of points when that analog point values are plotted on the web.
bulletDouble Poll buttons were added to web pages displaying RUEX remote units and MREX meters. When double polling an RUEX remote unit or an MREX meter, the first poll is followed by an operator specified delay, then another poll is generated automatically.
bulletIP Addresses of web browsers interacting with NTMC are recorded in NTMC event log files when users issue commands via those browsers.
bulletAOT Accumulation - parameter was added to RUEX control points. When Disabled, control point's Accumulated Off Time (AOT) is not updated at the time of transition from OFF to ON state. At that same time parameter's value is automatically reset to Enabled. This enables operators to turn off AOT accumulation when control point is set to OFF for other than normal operational reasons. Since LMEX load points and CCEX capacitors are mapped to RUEX control points, this functionality extends to Load Management and Capacitor Control components.
bulletAll NTMC Components - can now run on windows accounts with non-administrative privileges. This makes installation of NTMC easier on LANs where there are tight security arrangements in place. This modification does not affect NTMC native security.
bulletRemote Client - was modified as follows:
bulletData recording files (current, and archived) can now be viewed remotely as well.
bulletWindows accounts on control room  and remote computers no longer have to match either by name, password or privileges. This makes installation of Remote Clients easier on LANs where there are tight security arrangements in place. This modification does not affect NTMC native security.
bulletIOEX - now displays connected clients and servers. Control room IOEX displays connected Remote Clients by their respective IP addresses, while Remote Client IOEX displays control room machine by NetBios name or IP address, depending on the settings.
bulletConfiguration File Printing - was added to MCED.
