  1. Hello, I am having an issue with FIX Dynamics Real Time Database and the database columns available within when trying to query the database. On a system running iFIX 5.0, there are 19 data columns available, LHS of attached screenshot (in the screenshot example, crystal reports is used to view the columns). However in iFIX 5.9, only 15 columns are available (RHS of attached screenshot ), how can these missing columns be made available to be accessed? Regards, John

  4. Hi all,   This may sound like silly questions but I'm not sure whats best way to approach this apologies if it has been answered already I tried searching but didn't find anything related. What I want to do is : 1.)Add multiple bitmaps to picture in IFIX (Adding bitmap isn't problem. I'm worried that if I add 6 bitmaps to picture at once and layer them it may slow up system ??) 2.) Is there option for calling a bitmap from location in a picture and resizing bitmap when a certain tag is True ? 3.) The job I'm trying to achieve is, operator has choice of 6 axis to select on machine . They can download one axis at time to manually move axis on machine. What I want do is when the axis is loaded I want to load bitmap on screen show picture of the axis there going to move basically photo of axis physically on machine . And when they load new axis a new picture of that axis is displayed.   Any suggestion would be great.   Thanks in advance,
  5. iFix alarms all at once

    Just after midnight last night a site received EVERY alarm on the HMI but nothing had shutdown.  Has anyone ever seen this?  Does anyone know why this happened or how to prevent this from happening again?  The site is not manned around the clock and the operator received a call out that the whole plant went down.  Thanks!

  8. IFIX Scada communication issues

    I am new to ifix, I am having an issue, I am unable to receive any information, after attempting to fix the fact that the view was only pulling half the data I lost it all, I had a back up saved, but it didn't work on restoring communication, I was getting a cannot connect to node error, but I have fixed that, now all I am getting is question marks. essentially I believe that I have two standalone computers with the ifix software and the communicate directly with various plcs that share information across, either a ring topology or full connected. so the computer I have that is working is setup with scada and the database and MB1 with no network support, the one that is not working is set up the same, my cable connection is a usb to Ethernet and im communicating with a Comm port on the computer. I've tried different comm ports, even contacted GE, they were suppose to have someone call me back but no one has yet. Can anyone give me an idea of what I've got wrong here?
  9. GE iFIX iClient - Mutiple Display

    We are getting a new HMI system that will be running on GE iFIX and iClients.  The HMI is designed for a single monitor (1920x1080) and this will be displayed on a system that can support duel monitors.  We would like to use the second monitor for other windows based applications but I have been told this is not possible on an iClient system.  I have no knowledge of iFix and its HMI programing but this does not seam reasonable.  Can anyone provide any input on this? We mainly would like to use the second monitor to display security and video information for the plant that we already have a windows based application built.   I really do not want to have an additional system just , for this considering we already have a primary and secondary iClient workstations setup. Thanks in advance for any assistance and information.
  10. iFIX history

    Hi all, First time user!  I have read many articles on this site but only just joined.  I have found a great body of knowledge and expertise here, over the years.  Anyway, due to my poor memory I have forgotten the history of iFIX.   We did several projects for a customer years ago, and now I find that my newest customer is intent on using iFIX on one of their jobs.  Just out of curiosity, does anyone remember the history?   Thanks to all, Vector671
