It’s easy to configure e-Signatures while configuring your iFIX database.Discovery and auto- configuration(DAC) tools allowyou to d iscover PLC configurations, whichin turn can be used tocreate the iFIX D atabase, and configure the I/Odriver and the Historian database. DAC also supports OPC drivers andcan be used to discoverOPC data sources.Integrated Historian. WithiFIX, you have two tightly integrated storage options:66Proficy Historian helps youaddress the need for moredemanding node-basedapplications and morecentralized data logging.iFIX supports configurationof Historian through a singleenvironment, which allowsyou to quickly set up yourapplications.Classic Historian managesthe typical data loggingtasks of a small application.Electronic signatures. You caneasily configure e-Signatures,which are part of the iFIXcore, while creating the tagdatabase. E-Signatures worktogether with iFIX’s Alarm &Event engine to record runtimechanges made to the systemand create an audit trail tohelp you meet regulatory16 Proficy Softwarecompliance standards such as21 CFR Part 11 and NERC.Easy Configurationfor DevelopmentProductivityPrebuilt Dynamo Objects, Efficient Dynamo Managementand Dynamo Toolkit. iFIX offersover 500 prebuilt dynamosfrom basic lights and gaugesto ISA symbols and equipmentdynamos. iFIX dynamos areobjects that can be versionedand named, and they followthe master-instance linkage—automatically replicating whenchanges are made to themaster through the DynamoUpdater toolbar. iFIX’s DynamoToolkit enables you to buildcustom dynamos, which canbe stored as Dynamo sets andwill follow the same masterinstance linkage.VisiconX Objects. You canconnect to any relationaldatabase by simple configuration of wizards. You can buildSQL queries using the VisiconXobjects to access simple datafrom a single database orcombine multiple queries toaccess complex data fromvarious sources.Flexibility to CustomizeVBA – Scripting to Match Today’s Demands. iFIX includesa powerful and comprehensivescripting language, Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications(VBA). In addition, the implementation of VBA in iFIX is pervasive in the GUI environment.
