We are excited to announce the first release of the CygNet Thin Web Client (TWC), v1.0. TWC leverages familiar CygNet screen building techniques to construct web-based workflows displaying data from your existing CygNet servers. You don’t have to know HTML or CSS to build web applications to satisfy your remote operations requirements. By utilizing standards-based web technology, your end users can access operational data from the convenience of a web browser while allowing you to retire the use of costly remote display software to view native screens over the internet.
We are pleased to announce the release of CygNet’s OPC UA Server 1.0, now offering another way to access CygNet data over the web. The OPC UA server communicates with a CygNet system to request and receive data via encrypted communication channels using our intermediary REST API application, CygNet Bridge API. The CygNet OPC UA Server 1.0 operates with CygNet v9.5 and CygNet Bridge v4.4.121.
We’re all very happy to have CygNet 9.4 out in the world. The CygNet development and product management team worked hard to ensure this release would provide significant value for our customers. Hopefully you can see the results of that work in the massive 9.4 release notes.
As the lead developer for Canvas, I want to spend some time highlighting some of the many new HMI features in 9.4. This release represents the biggest investment we’ve done in our new HMI since it came out a few years ago. Frankly there are just too many new features to meaningfully cover in a single post, so I am going to break it up and do a series on some of the awesome new things in Canvas.
Today I want to talk about navigation. Navigation is a big theme for Canvas 9.4. As people start building out new systems in Canvas, we wanted to expand options for end users to move around quickly and efficiently.
I am pleased to announce the release of CygNet 9.4! CygNet 9.4 has been in development since July 2019 and has a lot of new features that I am excited to bring to your CygNet deployments. Also, as a part of this release, we have transitioned to a new documentation delivery platform and have video content ready for you as well. Keep reading below for more details!
