Lin & Associates is proud to announce our newest version of ALTIUS “HI-Performance HMI Solution” v. 5.3 Patent Pending! Gear up with our latest release featuring optimized infrastructure and performance! ALTIUS will be your toolkit for scaling to the highest peaks of efficiency. Review the new advancements implemented in the ALTIUS product line:

+ History Compare – The ability to run a history comparison on points on a display just got better with four different time intervals (20 mins, 1 hr, 4 hrs, and 8hrs) plus now point data can be collected from both limits and tolerance.

+ Improved Alarm Indication – Alarming on valves and equipment now features a separate option to choose either outline or background fill of the shape in the alarm color. These options are selected in the style sheet.

+ Disabled and Inhibited Alarm Characters – The “D” and “I” characters representing the “disabled” and “inhibited” alarm states are now customizable allowing for the character and the background fill to be changed to any color combination desired. These changes are made in the style sheet.

+ New Shapes – A series of new indicator shapes have been added including the Indicator Calculation, Long Tag Indicator, Indicator Parameterized, and Indicator No Alarming Parameterized. These new shapes bring more functionality and versatility to our shape library.

+ New L2 Shapes – Several new shapes have been added to our Dashboard Library as well. As we continue to evolve the Level 2 graphic and how it displays information, new shapes will be created. The DPA (Dynamic Progression Awareness) vertical and horizontal bars, DPA Connector, and Alarm Group shape are just an example of these advancements.

*ALTIUS v 5.3 is Patent Pending

Lin and Associates was once again happy to attend the Honeywell Users Group Americas Symposium, commonly referred to as HUG, hosted this year at the JW Marriott Resort in San Antonio’s beautiful Hill Country.  Of note, this is the very first HUG, in its 38 years of existence, to not be held in Phoenix, AZ, but we still welcomed the change of scenery.

One highlight from this year’s HUG, is that, as Honeywell channel partners, we attended the Industrial Solution Provider (ISP) conference.  Here, Honeywell unveiled their latest member of the Experion Distributed Control Systems family, Experion LX, a platform designed to meet the specific demands of mid-scale operations.  We are thrilled about the many opportunities this new package presents, especially Experion LX’s cost-effective approach while still maintaining the safety, efficiency, and state-of-the-art technology of Honeywell’s large-scale platform  Experion PKS.

Finally, we would like to thank Honeywell for hosting yet another successful and highly informative conference.  The speakers and trainers, as always, discussed pertinent industry topics sparking valuable discourse in this globally changing energy landscape.  Well done everyone and thank you!  If this year’s triumphs are any indicators to next year’s HUG attendance, it will be bigger still and we are looking forward to it!

Lin and Associates, Inc., announces the release of our fully bundled ALTIUS “Hi-Performance HMI Solution” v5.2, compatible with Honeywell Experion ® PKS R4xx. This product update features some real gems, including our ever-expanding Advanced Graphic Library, increased Three-Tier Navigation Menu functionality, and as always our continued attention to client’s needs.

Our Advanced Graphic Library just got a little more, well, advanced with the addition of Fieldbus graphics and more customizable operator options. Responding to our clients’ needs, a full Fieldbus Shape Library is now available with the typical controllers, indicators, control valves, and level bars. As with our other shape libraries, the Fieldbus shapes are Drag-N-Drop, Right-Click, and Faceplate enabled for closer monitoring and access to more advanced tools. The new Fieldbus shapes also sport our signature alarm color usage and information presentation consistency, as well as all our other customizable features our clients have grown to rely on. Furthermore, we also broadened our Advanced Graphic Library by adding increased operator control and personalization with the ability to set default Operating Limits, established at the managerial level, for specific process displays or the entire console. Additionally, operators can now visually alter their control environment by hiding ancillary objects and lines on the process displays. Based on an operator’s personal preference, excess screen-noise, such as instrument lines, vessel names, static equipment, and even indicators, can be reduced with just an icon click.

In the ALTIUS v5.2 release, the Three-Tier Navigation Menu also receives some increased functionality by way of the added Tabbed Menu. Embedded in the actual graphic, the Tabbed Menu automatically pools all associated graphics and arranges them in convenient, fully customizable tabs at the top of the process display. Accessible in the Application Center, the Tabbed Menu allows for more personalized options with left, center, or right alignment, adjustable pixel space between tabs, and fully changeable tab fonts and colors.

In adhering to our overall established aesthetic qualities and standards, ALTIUS v5.2 procures a little polish increasing usability and an overall streamlined experience. With the introduction of Object-based Yoking, the widget database is now dynamically updated with just a simple click. And finally, we have established product licensing with ALTIUS v5.2 making patches and upgrade notifications more automatic and specifically tailored.

We at Lin and Associates, Inc., strive to make all our products and services as efficient and effective as possible with advancing technologies and best practices so our clients reap the benefits when seconds count. We achieve this with your input and suggestions, so please tell us what you think and what you would like to see.
