RTMC Real-Time Monitoring and Control Software

Overview

Current Version: 4.3.3

RTMC real-time monitoring and control software is bundled with our LoggerNet, LoggerNet Admin, and RTDAQ software. Please note that RTMC cannot be purchased separately. This software graphically displays data, sets input locations, and toggles ports and flags. A simple yet powerful user interface allows RTMC to use components such as alarms, sliders, graphs, toggles, tables, and gauges to design custom multitab displays. For more alarms, switches, graphs, gauges, and layout components, see RTMCPro.

Detailed Description

RTMC Real-time Monitoring and Control Software is bundled with our LoggerNet, LoggerNet Admin, and RTDAQ software. It graphically displays data, sets input locations, and toggles ports and flags. A simple yet powerful user interface allows RTMC to use components such as alarms, sliders, graphs, toggles, tables, and gauges to design custom multi-tab displays.

RTMC's bitmap-based display system provides the tools used to tailor your displays. It can simultaneously display data from any number of data loggers in the network. RTMC can access statistical data reported by the server, including the current state of your data logger network and system-critical information used to trigger alarms. All of RTMC's functions are available when connected as a client to a server on a remote PC. RTMC also includes a sophisticated real-time mathematical compiler for performing real-time calculations. With its point-and-click interface, RTMC is a simple solution for generating real-time displays.

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to RTMC: 21

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. Most controls in RTMC work with mathematical expressions for their fields. For example, if there is a table named one_hour on station stat with a field named temp_degc, an expression can be entered to convert this to degrees Fahrenheit as follows:

    1.8 * "stat.one_hour.temp_degc" + 32

  2. In RTMC Pro, add the picture or icon to be used as a hyperlink, and then place a hotspot over it. The HotSpot tool is found in the tool box under Commands.

  3. Value forwarders can be used to keep all of the values synchronized. Use the switch to set the value in one data logger, and then use multiple value forwarders to read this value and forward it on to the other data loggers. The value forwarders can be set as hidden so that they don’t show up in runtime.

  4. A network may need to be loaded into LoggerNet from a backup file. If there was no backup, an identical network must be set up in the LoggerNet Setup for the RTMC project to run.

  5. Assuming the data structure is the same between the two files, the data from the BACKUP file can be cut and pasted into the DAT file.

  6. The project needs to be designed in RTMC Pro using the development environment. The project can then be run within the development environment or by using RTMC Run-Time.

  7. A basic version of RTMC, called RTMC Development, is included with LoggerNet. The full version of RTMC is called RTMC Pro and has many additional features, including more screen components, the ability to use more data sources (including LNDB databases and data files), the ability to generate reports, and the CSI Web Server.

    LoggerNet does not include LNDB, which is purchased separately.

  8. The easiest way to get the data into LNDB is to store the information in the LoggerNet data cache (or, for the information to be in a format that looks like a data logger data file to LNDB so that it can be imported).

  9. Custom Collection exists solely to collect data directly from the data logger and to write those data to one or more data files. Because of this, the data are not stored permanently in the data cache of LoggerNet. The only way (with RTMC Pro) to get this data into RTMC is to define a data file data source.

  10. Yes, provided the serial sensor is connected to a port that is separate from the one used to connect to LoggerNet.
