New programming method: Qcode
Qcode is a text-based programming method available on all channels with function. For each function, it is possible to select whether to use Qcode or the classic method Object List.
Qcode makes it easier to implement more complex operations in fewer channels.
New channel type - Finite state machine
Improved state machine with transition conditions, this makes it easier to implement functions like sequence controls.
New component type - Comment
Comments can be placed anywhere in function groups.
New channel type - Array Channel
The array channel is used to store multiple values in a single channel. The stored values can be accessed in other functions by indexing the array. There are also special array functions that perform operations on all values in the array such as finding min, max or average.
Multiple instances open at the same time
Now possible to have multiple instances of IQANdesign open at the same time. Copy and paste works between instances.
Graphic measure on display
Line and bar graph display controls for IQAN-MD4. Used to draw a graph of a channel value over time.
When using an array channel the complete array is drawn as a graph:
Channels can now be made visible in other function groups than its own, either in sub function groups (protected) or the entire application (public). This reduces the need to create FGI's to access channels in other function groups. To make a channel available throughout the application, make it public. When using these as inputs, they will show up with a dashed line.
It is now possible to add PDF files to project files for viewing on IQAN-MD4.
New module type - IQAN-SV
The IQAN-SV is an Ethernet camera which requires minimal configuration. More information will follow.
Improved decoding of J1939 PDU1 (DA)
Added property "Destination address (DA)" to JFIN/JFOUT. The new property is enabled when PGN is in PDU1 range. In previous version, this had to be calculated as part of the "PGN" property.
Resizable object group windows in function inspector
Resize the object groups to make Object List more visible.
New connection type: IQANconnect
A new way to connect remotely via Internet where you pay per connection. The IQANconnect service is available for beta testing, more information on this will follow.
For more details on the IQANdesign 4.00 news, see release notes.
IQANdesign 4.00 is fully compatible with project files created in version 3.
Use check for updates in IQANdesign 3 to download IQANdesign 4.00
A hint is to look through the examples and solution library files that install with version 4, you find them under:
these files have been updated to give examples of the new functionality.
