Release Notes for system:inmation 1.48
- Support for Windows XP Service Pack 1
inmation 32bit services can now be run on hosts with a Windows XP Service Pack 1 installation. (TFS ID 7764)
- Browse restrictions for OPC UA Datasources
Introduction of browse limit options for OPC UA Datasources to control number of items and nodes that are browsed.
- Performance Improvements - History retrieval for Redundant Items
Considerable performance improvements to increase speed of history retrieval for redundant items.

Improvements made to logging system to allow the system to continue processing logs after extremely large log messages are received. (TFS ID 8358)
- PLC Datasource
Datasource now handles non-accessible tag types that previously could cause interruptions to connections. (TFS ID 8207)
- MongoDB.Bson NuGet update
All inmation clients now use MongoDB.Bson NuGet package v2.7 to support MongoDB 4.02 installation. (TFS ID 8327)
- Setup Upgrade
Improvements made to the setup to handle problems with stopping services during upgrade. (TFS ID 8318)
- Web API property writing
Improvements made to the mechanism by which Web API writes certain properties to prevent undue load on image writing. (TFS ID 8271)
- Handling deletion of certain object types
Improvements made to the way that deletion of object types that have sub-objects with sub-objects (for example OPC Datasources) is handled. (TFS ID 8019)
- OPC server disconnection handling
Improvements made to better handle unexpected server disconnections in certain circumstances. Prevents reconnection errors upon service restarts. (TFS IDs 8341, 8069)
- S88/S95-compliant Production Tracking
system:inmation 1.48 sees the introduction of the Production Tracking functionality, allowing the user to retrieve, create and store batch records from production facilities according to the ISA-88 international standard. This can be linked to the assets managed in the ISA-95 equipment model to maintain manufacturing operation and control connections.
- Batch Tracker Object
A new class, the Batch Tracker, has been added to the I/O Model. It can contextualize batches from any inputs (e.g. PLC registers or OPC items). It works near real-time and allows for complete data acquisition including raw data, time series, trends and events. All such characteristics can be stored with the Batch Production Record.
- Production Tracking Data Store - Batch Record MongoDB Repository
Batch Records can be stored in the new Production Tracking Data Store. The new repository stores batch records according to ISA-88 and ISA-95 standards and can be queried using inmation’s Lua and Web APIs.
- Production Tracking Calendar - DataStudio
Production tracking events can be viewed and filtered using the DataStudio Calendar display. The display also offers the possibility to retrieve and view full batch records for production events direct from the calendar.
- Batch Production Record Querying - Lua and Web API
system:inmation APIs (Lua and Web API) can be used to query the production tracking data store and retrieve batch production records in JSON format.
- Batch Record Datasource improvements
The Batch Record Datasource has undergone improvements to ensure the reliability of batch tracking using the PI-bridge interface. It is now possible to retrieve batches from the reference point of the current batch (for example, getting the next batch or the previous batch).
- DataStudio JSON Viewer
The DataStudio JSON viewer has been improved to allow you to toggle between a structured and a raw view of the JSON string. There is also a refresh button to keep the viewer up to date with the latest JSON value.
- History Transporter Optimization and Improvements
Many optimizations have been applied to the HistoryTransporter class. It now allows for the fine tuning of AspenTech IP.21 History Requests, re-uses open connections with either the PI-Bridge or the SQLPlus interface, configurably reduces the calls to fetch external tag context and has intensified reporting about configuration problems (e.g. missing tags in the source system).
- NodeSetup installer - Install/Remove Server instances
The 1.48 NodeSetup installer can now install/remove multiple instances of the inmation Server component.
- Web API Improvements
Improvements have been to the Web API including increase in optional fields for the access token for WebSocket interface and integration of active directory authentication. The ReadHistoricalDataAtTime endpoint now supports the WebSocket interface.
Compatibility of 1.48 with Visual KPI 5.61.2For system:inmation 1.48, the recommended version of Visual KPI is 5.61.2. system inmation 1.48 remains compatible with older versions of Visual KPI from 22.214.171.1244 onwards Due to known issues, Visual KPI 5.57 should not be used.
