OPUS AGWS6 Graphic Workstation
Graphic Workstation User Interface
OPUS SOFTWARE presents AGWS6, the sixth generation of Advanced Graphic Workstation software. AGWS6 provides a sophisticated graphical interface to PC6-SQL for the display and analysis of real-time text and graphical information.
Both integrated and external workstations are supported. The integrated workstation resides on the PC6-SQL computer system and communicates via an internal link. External workstations communicate with the PC6-SQL system via various forms of asynchronous link, including local and wide area networks, wired or wireless links.
The workstation software is supplied free issue, the number of users on a system being controlled solely by the PC6-SQL licensing.
PC6-SQL supports multiple users, accessing the system either directly or through one or more workstation servers. Multiple workstation servers can be installed to support a practically unlimited number of users without any appreciable degradation of system performance.
User Defined Setup
Connections with multiple named sites can be established using pre-configured 'User Defined Setup' files. These files define all operational parameters for the connecting link, any required privilege levels and directory paths (unique paths for the site's mimic, map, graph and template specification files etc.).
Mimics are typically used to customise the operator interface or depict plant information in a graphic, or schematic form. AGWS6 mimics can also be treated as templates allowing the same page to be reused for different sites or plant areas.
Mimic pages consist of a background superimposed with static, marker, control and live data items. The background can be rendered using either a solid colour, one of the various graduated fills (18 off), or using a specified image (e.g. an associated map, plan or photograph of the plant).
Various static items can be inserted onto a page including text, frames (2D or 3D shapes), titled boxes, pipes, tanks, cutout overlays, bitmap images and icons. Pipes, text frames and bitmaps can be animated.
Markers can be inserted onto a page and provide operator interaction using simple mouse clicks. These markers, or mouse hot spots can be inserted using either hidden points, hidden boxes, or visible mouse buttons. The mouse cursor automatically changes to a pointing hand symbol whenever the cursor rolls over a marker.
commands can be associated with a marker's active and latched states.
These commands can be used to provide links to Microsoft compatible packages
(MS Access, MS Excel, Media Player etc.), to activate utility or user
programs (e.g. Visual Basic control applications), to display other mimic
or map pages, to display other directory or summary information, to display
graph data, in fact to perform any desired display or control action.
