Zontec, an international developer of Statistical Process Control (SPC) software solutions, announced an update to its Synergy 2000 Multi-Function Toolbox.
"We believe that data automation should be transparent to the customer," said Zontec president Warren Ha. "Because each customer's needs are unique, we designed the Multi-Function Toolbox to be flexible."
The software automatically collects data in real-time from programmable logic controllers, coordinate measuring machines, and similar plant hardware. It also enables companies to transfer legacy data from other applications or databases, integrate data from manufacturing applications such as ERP, laboratory management systems (LIMS), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, as well as serve as a communication bridge between Open Platform Connectivity (OPC) servers and the Synergy 2000 OPC client.
"For those in the automotive industry, the Multi-Function Toolbox also supports the AIAG Quality Measurement Data (QMD) specification as an open exchange format into Synergy 2000 from standard gauging devices," Ha said.
New features include the ability to connect to multiple OPC servers, to save selected tags as a group in OPC client, to import data from any database through Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), and set up data transfers for multiple comma-separated values (CSV) files. It is updated to the latest version of Microsoft Net 4.0.
