We are pleased to announce that CygNet version 9.2 is now available for download from the Weatherford CygNet download site. The 9.2 release provides new and updated functionality and features including Nexus, Canvas, CygNet EIEs, CygNet Measurement, and the CygNet Well Test Module.
Highlights of additions and changes in CygNet version 9.2 are listed below. For more details, see the CygNet v9.2 Release Notes document.
The new Nexus server is available in the CygNet v9.2 release to operate with your CygNet software installation. Nexus enables you to publish your CygNet data to an MQTT server, so that you can provide data accessibility to subscriber clients using MQTT messaging.
Canvas and Canvas View
Canvas, the CygNet HMI design tool, offers a significant feature expansion in the 9.2 CygNet release. The new version provides many new or modified features. Newly available controls include the Detail, Donut, Linear Gauge, Sparkline, and Tile View controls. The Tag Chooser control has been modified so that it now supports group hierarchies. Other usability enhancements include the addition of Canvas style sheets, a find and replace feature, support for multiple control selection and property editing, a new Controls tab on the Screen pane, an Include in Script control property, and other application-wide enhancements. Visit the CygNet blog to access webinars about using some of the Canvas features.
CygNet EIEs provide several new features for version 9.2. The CygNet remote device editor now contains a Points page so that you can view all points associated with a remote device.
Several new EIEs are available in this CygNet release. Additions include a pair of IoT EIEs, the IoT EIE and IoT Sparkplug EIE, and two OPC EIEs, the OPC Lufkin EIE and the OPC Weatherford EIE. The IoT and IoT Sparkplug are template-driven EIEs that use the MQTT protocol to subscribe to data that is published to the MQTT server. The OPC Lufkin EIE enables CygNet host communication with field devices supporting standard OPC protocol, in conjunction with the OPC Comm EIE. The OPC Weatherford EIE enables CygNet host support for dynagraph card features unique to the Weatherford RPOC device, using standard OPC protocol.
New CygNet Measurement features for the version 9.2 release include a new Balance Contribution report, an optional new Export: PGAS Data XML command, and several usability modifications to existing reports and commands.
CygNet Well Test Module
The CygNet Well Test Module is now available for use with CygNet 9.2. This separately licensed module is integrated with CygNet SCADA to track oil, water, and gas (OWG) values for tested wells in a production facility. Additional component installation and/or configuration are required prior to using the new module.
There are many other enhancements and fixes contained in CygNet v9.2. We encourage you to upgrade your CygNet installations and access the new functionality.
