The new software offers more alarm and recipe features, additional math and tag logic, plus improved Windows compatibility. This newest version is compatible with all previous C-more projects. Improved features include: new menu options, customizable toolbars, updated graphics and more to provide improved ease of use.

New tag combinations added to the event manager allow for simple logic with multiple events. Users can combine up to four different tags to trigger actions based on logical results, going beyond simple alarm and message functions. The easy-to-use event manager allows actions to be taken on a screen change, a set date or time, a single tag status or value, and now on a combination of tag status or values.

New math functions add more computing power to the project. Create custom formulas with constants or tag values or use the math keypad which provides access to simple and complex operations including log, sine, and square root.

An enhanced alarm list offers more options for alarm customization and new alarm filters allow for dedicated alarm summaries. The alarm list object allows operator interaction with alarms that have occurred and allows operators to view, confirm or clear the alarms. Alarms can include specific messages with embedded PLC tag data, as well as, date and time information for the alarm status.

Among the added accessibility features, a new object layer list window shows all the objects on the active screen and allows the user to lock/unlock, hide/unhide objects or quickly select them for editing. It also allows access to individual objects in a group without ungrouping and contains additional lists for hidden, locked or overlapping objects. New recipe functions allow access to databases containing 99 recipe sheets, each with 1000 recipes of 256 possible tags or values which can now be modified and saved on-the-fly while the machine is running.

The C-more HMI configuration software is priced at $99.00; current C-more EA9 users qualify for a free upgrade. The C-more Remote HMI App, remote access and control on the go, is available for only $4.99 in the Apple® or Android™ app stores.
