In 2020, comprehensive, flexible and automated reporting and analytics functions come as standard with xenon Analyzer 3.40. Further, upgrades to the web engine now support the alarm causes familiar to the editor, while applications run even more robustly overall.
All the applications and functionalities that xenon needs are composed in a handy package that can be launched from its own file system. In the past, it was possible to store the entire infrastructure centrally, using virtual machines, but it was not always practical due to the resources required.
Smart Objects in xenon are a grouping of related elements such as icons, variables or features. Because the object orientation is firmly grounded in xenon philosophy, all content can be maintained centrally.
To make the Chronological Event List (CEL) more needs-based and more efficient to use, users can now use the categorization function with version 8.20. The name combines the Python programming language and xenon Analyzer to highlight the strengths of both technologies for users in predictive analytics.
To better personalize reports in xenon Analyzer, the design of the footers can be aligned with corporate standards. Similarly, in headers not only texts but also colors and graphics, such as logos, can be applied and inserted freely.
In addition, with xenon Analyzer 3.40, the width of headers and footers can be adjusted dynamically and reports are adapted automatically to all formats. For example, values for variables such as pressure, density or electricity consumption can be set in relation to temperature and displayed in a diagram.
Additionally, paper printouts can be reduced significantly, resulting in flexible, sustainable reporting solutions for production operations. Zenon Analyzer 3.40 offers users with twice the number of time filters in a report.

Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site. Replied on April 17, 2015In reply to Vijay B's post on April 17, 2015, I know that what Windows 10 requires.
What I don't know is what kind system builds it can support. What your link doesn't tell me and what I want to know is if a two physical processor system is supported by Windows 10.

Early on in the Windows 10 Beta Test Program, this was the recommended tool to use if you weren't sure: Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.
Mine (2x 2 core Leon) is hitting 30-40% service interrupts nearly all the time since the official upgrade and running anything soon takes it unto 80-100% CPU with terrible performance. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.
Replied on August 4, 2015In reply to SimonKiddPD's post on August 3, 2015, I can tell the Windows 10 won't run on my dual Leon HP z600 system. After disabling the second CPU in BIOS the upgrade worked well, but with the second CPU enabled Windows 10 won't start (Boot loop).
I would suggest to stay at 8.1 til Microsoft had fixed this pain. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.
Replied on August 6, 2015In reply to SimonKiddPD's post on August 3, 2015, Yes it does. It recognizes both processors and works like a charm for my two E5-2620v3.
I can't tell you what's causing the heavy service interrupts and what's making such a huge impact on your processors, but I have an idea that it's Windows 10s new set background tasks. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.

Maybe the processors aren't supported properly because of their age in the technology world. I have an apple machine with one x5680 and haven't tried to upgrade that one.

But after a frustrating phone call to Microsoft there is a “Workaround”: A clean installation from DVD works like a charm.
Warning : preg_replace(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 4 in /under/203390_5020/blog/WP/content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/crayon_lands.class.php on line 340 This makes the upgrade sequence a bit more challenging as the uptime of the whole system becomes more important.
This way, only the PC being upgraded is temporarily unavailable while the rest of the xenon network runs uninterrupted. Step 1: Read back and import the Runtime files into the Editor project in the old version 7.20.
After successful installation, enter the path to your project for the new 7.50 entry in the Startup Tool. After successful installation, enter the path to your project for the new 7.50 entry in the Startup Tool.
Wednesday, July 13th, 2016In the previous blog articles we looked at the information that is essential to understand before initiating any upgrade sequence with xenon. At the same time, with the same Editor, you can create new projects using the new version and benefit from zenon’s latest developments and features.
Thursday, June 30th, 2016When we talk about a xenon version we need to be precise and need to name exactly what we mean by it. Ideally, upgrade to the most recently released xenon version in order to benefit from the very latest developments and new features.
ATTENTION: Always check what differences between versions are important to consider for your project before executing a conversion. To secure your investments done so far in a project To let you and your customers benefit from new product features and improvements at an early stage To allow an easy update process of your xenon system with the lowest downtime for step 2 to be possible quickly, even in existing and running systems.
With xenon this is an easy process where you only have to focus on your core competence and the project and not so much on the application you created it with. To excite your customers is the highest goal to reach and can be the crucial advantage to your competitors.
Conversion Improvement with newly developed features Easy upgrade process for a continuous integration This is an important point in order for you to be able to improve your existing projects with the newest developments and features currently available on the market, without the need to recreate anything again.
This is why we are going to focus a series of blog articles to address it in order to bring the possibilities to your attention. System changes during the lifecycle of the production equipment are very unpopular, upgrades are often delayed as much as possible, mostly till they are unavoidable.
COPA-DATA has invested significantly in features and functionality built into xenon, to provide engineers and end users with the highest amount of true compatibility options. In this series of blog articles I would like to outline this procedure in more detail and explain the technical background.
Now the new version is tested: if any noticeable problem arises, the whole system must be searched to identify the cause. In the worst case, the whole system must be moved back to the original version in order to restart production.
Another advantage is that the alarms and archive logging are also retained and are safeguarded, because the server is also completely available thanks to redundancy. If the current version of xenon is installed on all computers, the project conversion can be started.
If these are transferred to the respective server by the xenon Editor, they can be updated without interruption using the “Hot Reload” function: this function integrated into xenon automatically distributes the updated project data from the servers to the connected clients. The compatibility that xenon offers provides companies with the freedom to plan migration strategies on a long term basis and to quickly react to market trends.
Software updates for production equipment are often seen as a possible risk factor that can impair these objectives. If a system is able to work and run, you should change as little as possible in order to avoid interruption to production, breakdowns or faults.
This is necessary because there might be changes in the database backbone of the Editor, like a new version of the MS SQL Server. The original backup file remains unchanged, so it is always possible to go back to the previous xenon editor version.
Again the Editor recognizes the previous project version and asks the user for confirmation of the conversion. The only difference to option A lies in the fact that the xenon Editor automatically generates a backup of the project in the previous version before the conversion takes place.
The xenon setup sees that every version gets its separate folder / registry keys etc. The best way to only convert parts of an existing project into another is to use the XML export / import interface of the xenon Editor.
Afterwards, simply import the XML file into an Editor of generation 7. Zenon sees that everything is converted correctly. The xenon import / export interface is designed in a way that with a new version there are only new objects or attributes added to the XML format.
The setup automatically recognizes if the computer is a native 32- or 64-bit system and installs either one or both editions of xenon. Runtime Compatibility: You can use cutting edge technology for your visualization network, independent of the variety of versions you use.
In addition to all the benefits previously mentioned for project engineering, the high level of compatibility has three further advantages.
