GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms has announced the latest release of Dataviews 9.25, a set of graphic visualisation development tools for building custom applications.

This latest version includes features to enhance performance of display updates, support the use of scalable text in input object templates, and allow the setting of background colour for scalable text objects.

Dataviews 9.25 also introduces 64-bit operating system support for Red Hat Enterprise Version 5.3.

This feature enables developers to gain further performance from their application by having their Dataviews-built components harness the 64-bit instruction set directly without the need of emulation.

This is a key element for applications displaying a large amount of data in real time and those requiring high performance.

With the 9.25 release, Dataviews now supports Sparc Solaris 10, Intel Solaris x86 and Red Hat Enterprise 5.3 (32 and 64 bit).

Java programmers can now develop their applications using the Dataviews Java API for Java 2 v1.6.

‘With Dataviews 9.25 running natively on a 64-bit platform, we’ve increased the ability to harness the next generation of 64-bit chipsets and push applications further,’ said Mark Pipher, product general manager for HMI/SCADA products for GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms.

‘This version introduces the capability to increase the application complexity and its visualisation components, processing visualisations and data much faster when compared to 32 bit,’ he added.

The Dataviews visualisation toolkit allows customers to develop high-quality visualisations within their applications in order to fit their specific needs.

With more than 15 years of ongoing development, applications created with Dataviews can be found in many different industries for a wide variety of custom applications including an onboard combat tank battlefield identification system, a metropolitan traffic control system, and a warship damage control system.

The multi-platform support and graphical development editor have been key to Dataviews.

‘Dataviews allows graphical objects to be developed and imported quickly and easily rather than having to develop them in code,’ said Pipher.
