With VBASE 11.7.2 VISAM GmbH publishes another service release for the versatile automation platform.
Among other things, the update introduces the new runtime version VBASE Embedded-C-RT for x86-based HMI systems, which will replace VBASE Kompakt-RT for the discontinued Windows CE in the medium term. The new embedded runtime is only offered pre-installed on automation devices (VTP and VGATE) from VISAM GmbH. Individual purchase without the corresponding hardware is not possible. A first device supporting the new runtime is the already announced 7" operating device VTP-BX74 with Windows 10 IOT. Our comparison table explains the exact differences between the VBASE runtime systems.
Furthermore, the update contains some changes that make the VBASE system even more powerful and secure. For example, more function blocks can be used within a project and the number of linkable arrays for the line recorder has been drastically increased.
The new version is available as an installation file and as an offline update in our download area. Existing installations can easily be updated with the integrated VBASE update manager.
The update is free of charge for all VBASE customers!
As announced, the further development on the basis of the current VBASE generation is considered to be completed and is now limited to service and security updates. The further development of VBASE with new features and functions is fully concentrated on the coming generation: "VBASE X64".
