Hello to all,
I really can confirm that SmartGenerator FactoryLink® module does a good job in converting existing applications from FL to PcVue. Besides a couple of small applications (that mostly are easy) I have done conversion of two large projects by myself with good success and am going to start another one these weeks.
With a little amount of additional work by other tools also the parts of FL application, that are not converted automatically, can be brought into the new PcVue environment. Also by using PcVue's programming interfaces ("Cimway" for communication with special equipment and "Blankmanager" for special functionality in C++ or C language), so called "Third Party Tasks" using the PAK-Interface of FactoryLink®, can be ported to PcVue.
All in all a very good solution for rescuing existing FactoryLink® applications over into todays automation environments.

Hello to all,

I want to add another good experience resulting from the availability of SmartGenerator FactoryLink® in PcVue. Few months ago a public tender was published in Italy aiming to select the best SCADA based solution to rewamp a MonitorPro® project, in a redundant configuration with 6 clients in a control center of a hydroelectric plant. We, Pcvue srl, in a joint venture with one of our system integrators, have presented our bid, in competition with about 15 other companies, among which the market leading suppliers of PLC's and RTU's. We have prepared our offer by leveraging the SmartGenerator FactoryLink®, allowing us to natively import the whole real-time database of over 15000 tags, the alarm handling, the trending, etc. plus have recovered completely the 135 configured mimics. We have evaluated that the savings in our bid were roughly 100 K€ of development costs and, guess who has been awarded the tender? On March 26th we have received a phone call from the purchase department of the end-user asking us our email address since they needed to send us a purchase order for the project!!! We have been awarded the project...
