Now, we reset all DIO channels to false on startup and the state change is processed when the next read is performed.

(Bug) Allen-Bradley Wrong Tag Type (Integer)

  • When the user sets up an integer tag and tries to write a double value to it, errors occur. Now, we convert the value to an integer and write it. So, if the value is 30.47, what gets written to the PLC is 30. This makes it possible for them to use the smaller INT rather than REAL if they want to. It's still recommended to use REAL if they want the decimal though.

P/T Auto Patrol Dropdown

  • Changed the P/T Auto patrol toggle switch to a dropdown with more options. You can now turn auto patrol for the selected P/T or for all connected P/Ts.

Preset Config Loading Process

  • When loading a recipe after the P/T reaches a preset, the settings will load for the P/T's linked cameras independently of the others. This way, if you have two P/Ts and two cameras that are linked, when P/T 1 reaches a specific preset you can load ROIs for camera 1 only. This is useful if P/T 2 is still trying to reach its destination and not ready to load ROIs on camera 2 yet or if P/T has more stops than P/T 1. If there are no linked cameras for that P/T, the recipe will be loaded for all cameras.

SQL Database improvements

  • A better data infrastructure has been implemented for our SQL data tables. These new table formats should be easier for a SQL savvy customer to access them and understand what's going on with the data. Also, WAL was implemented so that ViperVision could write to the database even if a client was connected and reading data.

ROI Handling

  • ROI Added & Removed events from the Atlas SDK are no longer being utilized. Instead, we are handling the ROIs internally now and just verifying that the SDK has the correct settings after the fact.

ViperVision 4.0.0.0

Redesign

  • The main form of the application has a more modern look to it. The settings menu is broken down into smaller pieces, however, the software remains live while making changes. We developed our own controls for textboxes, checkboxes, dropdowns, numeric up-downs, and buttons. Also, we have begun using a card approach to showing list data instead of the older style grids. But we have an ever-growing guru menu for users wanting a more involved experience.

Licensing

  • We implemented a new license scheme. This new approach allows us to provide online licensing by creating the license for the customer when they make a purchase and sending them a Registration Key. They can use that key while their PC is online for the software to communicate with our licensing site and get the corresponding license.

Viewer

  • ViperViewer has been pulled into the application and is no longer a stand-alone app. This will allow us to continue developing it so it does not get left behind. Files can be opened and docked just like live cameras. Any docked files load back up when the software reloads.

(Bug) Axis Freeze

  • After a while, the Axis camera can stop streaming. We can now detect this and restart the stream.

ViperVision 3.8.21.33

New Axis Stream

  • Now using VLC library to stream the Axis camera. This offloads the processing to the GPU and doesn't prevent the FLIR A400/A700 from working properly when run at the same time. No longer need the Axis Media Control SDK. Will need to find a way to make recordings with this new streaming format.

Range Selections

  • After a recent Atlas 7 update, our previous workaround for the ranges no longer worked. They only fixed the issue in the 32 bit version of Atlas. So the temperatures don't show correctly in 64 bit version.

Range Workaround For A400/A700

  • This is in place while FLIR fixes the range bug in the SDK.

EBT Vertical Monitor Support

  • Make it so when the display is in portrait mode, the EBT control can be loaded above or below the images.

Moved Database File To ProgramData Folder

  • The database file was being created in the ProgramFiles folder. Moving it to the ProgramData folder because that is a safe location and does not require admin privileges to use.
