[DeviceStatusCheck]???

Min_Gap=500

Min_cycle_interval=300

 

If this is not defined, BwLNSApp.exe works as it did before.

 

Min_Gap (in milli-second) defines the minimum time between any two GetState() function calls, regardless how many devices and the sequence of the devices. This setting ensures only 1 GetState() can happen in defined time to prevent too many Lonworks traffic.

 

Min_cycle_interval (in second) defines the minimum time to complete check device state for ALL devices. Please make sure Min_Gap * total_devices < Min_Cycle_interval. Otherwise, only Min_Gap will be valid.

 

7.0-2012.03.29

7.0-2012.03.18

Problem Resolved:? We discovered that RPC calls to a built-in WebAccess RPC server using default port number 14592 have not been authenticated properly. With this security vulnerability, running SCADA nodes can be exploited by using reversely engineered exploit code. In the latest packing of WebAccess, we patch the vulnerability by implementing Remote Access Code validation on the built-in RPC server.

 

It is strongly recommended that our users upgrade their systems using the latest packing of WebAccess Node especially if the SCADA nodes are exposed to the Internet. If Remote Access Code has already been used previously, the reinstallation of WebAccess Node on SCADA nodes will patch the vulnerability automatically. If Remote Access Code has not been used, please enter Remote Access Code during the reinstallation of WebAccess Node on SCADA nodes.

 

Please note that the latest packing of WebAccess Client is needed if Remote Access Code is used. An incompatible WebAccess Client will be redirected to a web page on the project node to download and install the compatible WebAccess Client.

 

7.0-2012.03.08

Problem Resolved:? WebAccess has a feature that allows its View Client to connect to the SCADA Node directly without having to be redirected from the Project Node. To reflect the recent update for Remote Access Code validation on RPC calls, the URL link for this feature should be revised as follows:

 

http://your_scada_node_ip/broadweb/bwview.htm#proj=project_name&node=node_name&. . . .

&code=remote_access_code&codetype=1

&node2=backup_node_name&code2=backup_remote_access_code&codetype2=1

 

Note 1: The parameter code and codetype can be omitted if no remote access code is configured for node_name.

Note 2: The parameter code and codetype can be omitted if the remote access code for node_name has not been changed since the last successful connection to node_name.

Note 3: The parameter node2, code2 and codetype2 can be omitted if no backup node is configured or no remote access code is configured for backup_node_name.

Note 4: The parameter node2, code2 and codetype2 can be omitted if the remote access code for backup_node_name has not been changed since the last successful connection to backup_node_name.

 

7.0-2012.03.02

Problem Resolved:?A backdoor left open unintentionally to WebAccess RPC server using default port number 4592 has been discovered by our engineers and outside hackers. With this backdoor open, WebAccess Project and SCADA nodes can be easily exploited by using existing API functions shipped with WebAccess package or by using reversely engineered exploit code. Two separate reports claiming to have successfully exploited WebAccess RPC server have been evaluated and validated by our engineers. In the latest packing of WebAccess, we seal the backdoor by implementing Remote Access Code validation on WebAccess RPC server.

 

It is strongly recommended that our users upgrade their systems using the latest packing of WebAccess especially if their Project and SCADA nodes are exposed to the Internet. If Remote Access Code has already been used previously, the reinstallation of WebAccess Node on Project and SCADA nodes will seal the backdoor automatically. If Remote Access Code has not been used, please enter your own Remote Access Code during the reinstallation of WebAccess Node on Project and SCADA nodes.

 

Please note that the latest packing of WebAccess Client is needed if Remote Access Code is used. An incompatible WebAccess Client will be redirected to a web page to let you install the compatible WebAccess Client from the Project node.

 

Please also note that a new login page will appear before entering View client if Remote Access Code is used. Please enter operator’s username and password to proceed to View client.

7.0-2011.01.11

Feature Enhanced:  Improve the performance of data transfer for WASCADA nodes.

 

Feature Enhanced:  Trending tooltip to display tag description is now optional in Node property page.

 

Feature Enhanced:  Security Area has been increased from 32 to 64.

 

Feature Enhanced:  A dropdown list will appear for digital tag change value interface in Thin Client.

 

Feature Enhanced:?Alarm Management System is implemented as an optional feature to allow users to define worker groups that will receive text messages and/or emails when specific tags in alarm groups in alarm.

 

Problem Resolved: 15-second limit was set unintentionally for all RPC calls when trying to fix network cable disconnected issue. This will cause download operation and some other slower RPC calls to return before actually finishing the call.

 

Problem Resolved: the inconsistent content for block tags appearing in tag list for various log display pages like Action Log, Alarm Log, Analog Tag Log, Analog Change Log, Discrete Tag Log and Text Tag Log.

 

7.0-2010.11.10

Feature Enhanced:  BEMS version1.1 (Building Energy Monitoring System) uses Microsoft Silverlight and .NET 3.5 installed on the Project Node.

 

Problem Resolved: SCADA node not restarting after download and restart command.  This happened with large tag counts; a timing issue, the command to restart occurred before the node had completely stopped.

 

7.0-2010.09.30

Problem Resolved:  After release 7.0-2010.08.17, the View Client may take up to extra 3 seconds to close. This seemed too long for most users. The code has been reviewed and modified to reduce the delay to a more acceptable level of 0.75 second.

 

Problem Resolved: The issue that the View Client stops responding when physical connection to SCADA Node is broken down as a result of network cable unplugged should have been resolved.

 

Feature Enhanced: As an ongoing integration process for our new Silverlight version of BEMS, WebAccess Node installation will automatically create a virtual directory named BEMS in IIS.

 

Feature Enhanced: Two methods are added in webdobj.webdraw object for users to get tag values from and set tag values to SCADA Node. Webdobj.webdraw is designed to work on the Project Node especially with IIS.

 

The prototypes for the two methods are:

 

STDMETHODIMP GetValueFromNode(BSTR ProjName, BSTR NodeName, BSTR TagList, long No, VARIANT *ret);

 

STDMETHODIMP SetValueToNode(BSTR ProjName, BSTR NodeName, BSTR TagList, long No, BSTR ValueList, long *ret);

 

A sample asp code segment is shown below to illustrate on how to use these two methods.

 

Dim tObj

set tObj = Server.CreateObject("webdobj.webdraw")

Dim  retval

' To Get Values From Node

retval = tObj.GetValueFromNode(?span class=SpellE>Your_Project_Name? ?span class=SpellE>Your_Node_Name? “Tag1?+ vbCrLf + “Tag2?+ vbCrLf + “Tag3?+ vbCrLf, 3)

if retval(0)> 0 then

  ' The values returned are in retval(1), retval(2), . . . for Tag1, Tag2, . . .

else

  ' Tag list has syntax error, Connection to SCADA node failed or Kernel is not running.

end if

' To Set Values To Node

retval = tObj.SetValueToNode(?span class=SpellE>Your_Project_Name? ?span class=SpellE>Your_Node_Name? “Tag1?+ vbCrLf + “Tag2?+ vbCrLf + “Tag3?+ vbCrLf, 3, “Vaule1?+ vbCrLf + “Value2?+ vbCrLf + “Value3?+ vbCrLf)

if retval> 0 then

  ' The values have been set.

else

  ' TagList has syntax error, ValueList has syntax error, Connection to SCADA node failed or Kernel is not running.

end if

set tObj = nothing

 

7.0-2010.09.02

Feature Enhanced: BACnet MS/TP device driver via serial (RS485). Named BwBACnetM, this device driver supports communication via a serial connection (RS485) directly to the SCADA node PC allowing a direct connection to the BACnet MSTP serial network. This provides a second method of communications to BACnet MS/TP serial devices. Note that the BACnetJ driver also supports MS/TP communications via a BACnet TCPIP or Ethernet gateway to MSTP.

 

Problem resolved: Registry entries created by WebAccess were sometimes removed by some anti-virus applications.

 

Problem resolved:  False alarm information sometimes appeared in alarm summary.

 

Problem resolved:  The span high of COM x scan time, %ACOMSCANTM(x), has been increased from 60,000 msec to 600,000 msec to represent the correct scan time for slower devices.

 

7.0-2010.08.17

Feature Enhanced: Scheduled Reports. Although its period is still limited to a maximum of 24 hours, the Shift Report can now extend beyond midnight (for example, from 8 am today to 8 am the next day).

 

Problem Resolved: Modbus server has been updated to fix an error that occurred when reading tags with certain conversion type.

 

Feature Enhanced: A new video type, advantechnvs, is added to support Advantech NVS video server.

 

Problem Resolved: The issue regarding instances of IE 8, which are invoked usually by View in Graph, failing to be freed after use is resolved.

                             

7.0-2010.08.10

Problem Resolved: Blank data in Scheduled Reports in French Language version.

 

7.0-2010.07.16

Problem identified: Datacore will not stop. This prevents download from restarting. This occurs infrequently. Current solution is to return to previous version.

 

Problem identified: Simulation Mode (SIMU) does not enter simulation mode. Tags still attempt communication and are marked as bad *[fffff] or *[9000] or *[8000].  Fix will be in next build.

 

Problem Resolved: View may cause IE 8 to crash after viewing a graph file that contains View in Graph.

 

Feature Enhanced: Thin Client.  In addition to iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, iPad and Android phones in general should work well now with our Thin Client. Please use the built-in browser on the supported mobile devices to connect to http://your_project_node, the page should be redirected automatically to the Thin Client on your project node.

 

Feature Enhanced: A Key Macro command can be sent from within View in Graph to its parent - a ViewDAQ/View containing the View in Graph. The syntax is:

Macro:      <SENDPTZ>=parent#your_macro_command

 

TCL:        SENDPTZ ?parent#your_macro_command?/i>

 

VBScript:   SENDPTZ ?parent#your_macro_command?/i>

 

JScript:    SENDPTZ(?parent#your_macro_command?;

  

Feature Enhanced: SQL Commands in Scripts. In addition to FETCH NEXT which is previously supported, FETCH PREVIOUS, FETCH FIRST, FETCH LAST, FETCH ABSOLUTE n (starting from 1) and FETCH RELATIVE m (can be a negative number) are now supported for databases that support scrollable cursors. As a result of our internal testing, we can conclude that these fetch commands work fine on Microsoft SQL Server while failing on Microsoft Access.

 

A JScript sample is shown below to illustrate on how these commands can be used:

 

SQLDIRECT("CONNECT SESSION 2 TO bems,sa,zzcnjky");

SQLDIRECT("USE SESSION 2");

SQLDIRECT("DECLARE C1 CURSOR FOR Select [F_Value] from [T_EC_EnergyItemResult] where [F_EnergyItemCode]='01000' and [F_EndTime]<'2010-3-18 12:00:00' order by [F_EndTime]");

SQLDIRECT("OPEN C1");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH NEXT C1 INTO tag1");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH PREVIOUS C1 INTO tag2");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH FIRST C1 INTO tag3");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH LAST C1 INTO tag4");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH ABSOLUTE 5 C1 INTO tag5");

SQLDIRECT("FETCH RELATIVE -3 C1 INTO tag6");

SQLDIRECT("CLOSE C1");

SQLDIRECT("DISCONNECT SESSION 2");

 

7.0-2010.07.02

Problem Resolved: Datacore crashes immediately on start if Display Scan Tags are marked to DataLog or Log to ODBC. Starting with May 10 2010 build, if Display Scan Tags were marked to DataLog or Log to ODBC, they where forced to Constant Scan; however, not enough memory was allocated for the larger number of Constant Scan tags.  A change to BwDatImg.dll solved the problem.

 

Problem Resolved: Slow downloads occurring for a database with a large number of ODBC log tags.

 

Feature enhanced: Added a text-type system tag, DevActIP(comport, unit number). It shows the current active IP for a device. For a dynamically addressed remote SCADA node (i.e. WASCADA), a user can use this information to access the remote SCADA node. This is read-only tag

 

Feature Enhanced: Added a text system tag "SMS_Numb". This allows a user to change the SMS phone number (initially defined in SCADA Node Properties).

 

Problem Resolved: In a super SCADA node connecting to multiple remote SCADA nodes (WASCADA), in different time zones, with trend synchronization tags configured, a problem would occur the 1st day of each month, with  log data not recorded correctly.

 

7.0-2010.06.08

Problem Resolved: On certain computers with IE 8 installed, the entire content of Draw Client or View Client will flash itself about every one second. We are almost 100% sure this is caused by a bug in a COM interface provided by IE 8; we decided to work around the issue in case Microsoft never fixes it. To implement this update, please install the latest packing of WebAccess Client.

 

7.0-2010.05.10

Feature Enhanced:  For all device driver communications, a 20 ms delay is added after the first connection and before the first send to make sure the device is ready to receive data after the initial connection.

 

Feature Enhanced:  Event data uploading performance has been improved.

 

Feature Enhanced:  An accumulation point with a negative accumulated frequency ranged from -1 to -3600 seconds is now allowed to mimic a differential tag. The differential tag value will be evaluated every "-Accumulate frequency" seconds as the difference of the current source tag value and the last reset time source tag value). To use the following picture as an example, Meter Reading is the source tag with 1440 as Reset Minutes. The differential tag, Daily Usage, will be evaluated every 60 seconds as the current daily usage. To avoid the tag values being reset after restarting kernel, it is recommended to set "Keep Previous Value" to 1.

 

New tag fields:  .EXTAA0, .EXTAA1, .EXTAA2, .EXTAA3 and .EXTAA4, are added and defined as the analog type to represent Extra Value 0,  Extra Value 1, Extra Value 2, Extra Value 3 and Extra Value 4 of a tag. These tag fields are used to hold any user defined data. If
