Vista Control System - Vsystem runs on and is the same product on eight computer platforms, including Linux, Solaris, Tru-64 UNIX, OpenVMS (VAX, Alpha and Itanium), Windows NT and Concurrent's PowerMaxOS and RedHawk.
Vsystem is based on an open software architecture.
Vsystem is a collection of comprehensive, real-time, networked process control software tools known for performance and scalability, openness, support and training, and cross-platform/cross-version application.
Monitor and record data at aggregate rates ranging up to and well beyond 3,000,000 values per second. Record data at the time constants of your process--essential and beyond for correct process monitoring and improvement. Develop systems with many more than 100,000 channels at high speed. Vsystem APIs, including the operating-system-independent API, are published; you can add your application experience to the implementation, even when this involves extensive modeling and calculation. You can develop your system to improve quality and productivity to stay ahead of the competition. Vsystem will keep up with your needs, not limit your solutions. Vsystem applications are modular; changes and additions do not require a restart of the whole system.
Vista's Vsystem comprises the following components:
Vaccess - a networked, user-extendable, real-time database and library of access routines. Unique, event-driven architecture results in superior performance, speed, scalability, manageability, and security.
Vdraw - a rich, full-featured graphical user interface with automatic connection to Vaccess, the real-time database.
Valarm - an interactive, configurable alarming tool that signals warnings and alarms, both audibly and visually. Uses custom lists of channels to set priorities and report alarms anywhere on the system--locally or globally.
Vlogger - a client/server logging tool that can archive large quantities of data at sub-millisecond rates.
Vtrend - a history and trending tool for viewing archived data graphically.
Vscript - a high-level scripting language that interfaces transparently with Vaccess.
Vscan - an active connection between Vaccess and I/O hardware, allowing for easy customization.
Vczar - an active agent that serves as the Vsystem network task manager and allows applications and users to control databases in a network environment.
