iX 2.40 SP1 – Taking your EXTER/E1000 applications to the next level.

2018-10-12

Beijer Electronics is proud to present iX HMI software version 2.40 SP1 offering a powerful conversion tool to upgrade EXTER/E1000 applications to iX and modern X2 series operator panels, along with other minor improvements.

The EXTER/E1000 operator panels are end-of-life and with the release of iX 2.40 SP1 we help customers set a successful strategy to secure applications created in Information Designer and E-Designer. The powerful conversion tool of iX enables customers to reuse their applications to the greatest extent in iX Developer and on modern X2 operator panels, with the best result and a minimum of work.

The conversion tool in iX 2.40 SP1 supports:

  • Resize & aspect ratio option lets you determine whether an application should be scaled, and aspect ratio locked.
  • Function key templates enables an X2 panel to have a similar user interface as a key panel but realized in a touch panel. The function key templates automatically add objects for navigating/controlling the application and emulate function keys, LEDS and text strips.
  • Key field objects can now be converted directly to iX Developer eliminating the need to add key field objects manually afterwards.
  • Log messages gives a clear overview of the conversion status.
  • Index registers are automatically transferred and converted to iX Developer.
  • Data types are automatically transferred and converted to iX Developer.
  • Scaled datatypes of scaled INT tags are automatically transferred and converted to iX Developer with the original settings.
  • INT tags are automatically transferred and converted to iX Developer.
  • Function key macros are automatically transferred and converted to iX Developer. 

Other improvements in iX 2.40 SP1:

  • Improved database back-up and restore actions.
  • Consolidation of four data base backup actions into one user-friendly action.
  • The .NET Framework is upgraded to version 4.7.2.
  • Minor general bug fixes.
