We are currently running an opto 22 hardware configuration and do not wish to change this, but we do need to change out multiplexor and software to control out climate labs. I know that BridgeVIEW is exemplary for control of single environments, and provides exactly the sort of data acquisition utilities and precision we require. Our dilemma is that we are currently running 24 climate controlled rooms concurrently, that all need to be controlled accurately, as well as all data from these rooms being redily accessable. Can you please tell me if BridgeVIEW is able to concurrently run up to 30 individual controllers at the same time? We need this security in order to ensure that all rooms will operate as expected for the lifetime of the software, and that nothing
bizarre will occur if more than one controller is connected at the same time. We also need to be sure that if for some reason, one controller does fail, that it does not remove our entire network of climate controlled
rooms as well.
We also need to run seperate controllers for CO2 emissions and Nutrients as well as the 24 for rooms and one for data acquisition. Please can you advise whether BridgeVIEW will meet our needs.
The nice thing about BridgeVIEW is that the HMI Wizard creates independent while loops for each TAG. This way, it doesn't matter if data can no longer be acquired from a specific input, therefore halting the execution of the loop. All other loops will continue to receive and process data. You can control and access as many controllers as you like, as long as the network or controller board or serial interface or whatever else you are using to access your hardware allows BV to access all inputs/outputs.
