This version is a minor release improving on the features in the 5.5.2 series.
- Added ability in Centerline Config to select a tag and then share it’s process to all tags in the Centerline.
- DMODXN/HT2N contribution tags will now be created for each of the input tags, allowing tag contributions to be viewed over time.
- Deadband support added to comparison operators < , <= , > , >= . Deadband can be set as either a constant or a percent.
- New tutorials added to PARCview Manual.
- New setting added to System Defaults (SystemConfig>System Defaults>General) allowing uncertain quality values to be treated as good quality. This flag impacts values in Trend and PARCgraphics.
- PARCValue now provides a ValObj property to more easily see if the value is null, the Value property will return a DBNull value which is more appropriate as a legacy capability.
- Adding an “IncludeEndBound” parameter overload to “NormalizeToStep” that allows it to include the interval that starts on the end time. When normalizing IV tags, the final interval will only be a one second interval. Previously the function was only including intervals >= start and < end. If includeEndBound is true it will include all intervals that are >= start and <= end
