We are pleased to announce the latest release of CygNet, version 9.5!
At a high level, the 9.5 release has a lot of added features. To help you get acquainted with this new release, we've cataloged our most significant enhancements below for your review:
Facility Attribute Increase
We’ve heard from several customers that their data model could use more attributes. To help customers that need more attribution, we’ve added 41 new attributes have been added to facility records in 9.5! We distributed these new attributes into:
• 30 new 10-character table attributes
• 10 new 80-character text attributes
• 1 new 300-character text attribute
In addition to adding these new attributes, users who leverage mixed-mode replication to replicate from older versions of CygNet to 9.5+ can now utilize patches that will ensure that the replication approach to upgrades will continue to work as you’ve come to expect.
Canvas was a large focus in the 9.5 release and we have a lot of new feature set to cover, so to simplify the review, we’ve made a quick video that goes over some of the high-level features here:
Between our enhancements and fixes, we’ve added:
More Liquid process variables, more data import options, better gas analysis management and reporting, as well as a new wet gas automatic recalculation option!
Our IoT capabilities are always expanding, and 9.5 marks the most advanced and simplest IoT publisher from Weatherford. Rule-based configuration options mean you can set-and-forget the Link service and ensure your newly created points will be targeted by the service. These rules can be applied to both your Points and Facilities within CygNet for added flexibility. We also support rollup history publishing so you can have better control over the data that is published out of your Link service.
Just like 9.4, all of our product documentation will be available online via HTML pages. We believe that this will make it easier for you to keep up to date with the changes within the software, as well as simplify finding relevant data more efficiently. One of the most significant benefits of this change is enhanced search capabilities and the ability to request additional documentation for specific sections within the help. This new web-based help will also allow us to add details to the documentation if issues are found with the content. We hope that this new change will help you to do your job as a SCADA administrator or CygNet user more easily.

2020 was a challenging year for everyone on multiple levels. Dispite the hardships we have faced, I am extremly proud of the dedication, focus, and quality that has been produced by our Engineering, Support, and Documentation teams in this 9.5 release. I would like to also give a thank you to our CygNet community that has banded together under the Highly Unofficial CygNet User Group put together by Zack Warren.
We are currently working on a few more surprises for the CygNet community to be released this year. We have several other items that will drop in the next couple of months so please subscribe to the blog becuase this is where the announcements will be made first.
