Additions to the manual in version 08.2.00

Integration of PDF files in the GUI

  • You can open custom PDF files from the "Help" menu. To use this function it is necessary to manually create a new directory with the name "additional_help", inside the <install dir>/var folder and copy the PDF files to it. If the folder "additional_help" contains PDF documents, then Industrial HiVision creates and displays dedicated menu items with the name of the PDF files under the "Help" menu. You can add the following types of files, which Industrial HiVision displays under the "Help" menu: 
    • Files that contain a language abbreviation in their name, for example "de_hello.pdf". If the language set in Industrial HiVision match the start of the file name, then Industrial HiVision displays this type of file.
    • Files that do not contain a language in their name, for example "hello.pdf". Industrial HiVision always displays this type of files in the under the "Help" menu.

OPC UA unencrypted communications

Since Industrial HiVision release 08.1.04, OPC UA communications are encrypted by default. To use unencrypted communications between the OPC UA client and server, perform the following steps:

Note: When using the OPC UA protocols, we recommend that you only use encrypted communications. 

  • Open the file.
     You can find the file in the <Install dir>\lib\opcua\config directory.
  • Enter the following line to the bottom of the file:
  • Save and close the file.
  • Restart the HiVisionMasterService8.2 service.

New features in version 08.2.00

Grafana® is a multi-platform open source web application used for analytics and interactive visualization of data. When connected to supported data sources, Grafana® provides charts, graphs, and alerts.
    • Polling Ramp up
       This parameter allows you to specify the rate of polling operations started per second. This rate represents the number of new operations that are added to the polling engine per second, until all requested variables are being polled.
