Reliable Controls® Releases RC-Reporter® 3.4

Victoria, BC, Canada – Reliable Controls is pleased to announce the release of RC-Reporter 3.4. Extract intelligence from your archived building data and make informed operational decisions with RC-Reporter® from Reliable Controls. This fully customizable, server-based application allows you to analyze the trend and runtime data from any BACnet® Internet-connected building, and generate professional performance reports, quickly and accurately. New features include:

Custom Gridline Increments

Customize the major gridline divisions for values that appear on the left, y-axis of a chart component. By default, RC-Reporter automatically assigns gridlines according to how well they fit in the chart. Fine-tune the incremental values for gridline divisions by entering a value in the Increment column of the component data worksheet.

Test Email Server Connection

When configuring RC-Reporter’s connection to an external email server, you can now verify SMTP server credentials by testing the connection within the user interface.

New TIME Function in RC-Reporter Queries

RC-Reporter queries can now include the TIME function, which can be used to specify a particular time as a query criteria.

External Link to Integrate Components in RC-Studio®

RC-Reporter now provides the ability to assign a URL to a report component as an External Link. You can use an External Link in an HTML animation from RC-GrafxSet®, which can be annotated in an RC-Studio System Group that is enhanced, or used in conjunction with the new Dashboard FlexTiles™ in RC-GrafxSet. The resulting System Group annotated with an RC-Reporter Component animation can then be viewed in RC-WebView®, and the MACH-Pro(Web)Com/Sysbrowser user interface.

Zoom and Pin Functionality in Line Chart Components

When viewing a line chart component, a new suite of visualization tools is available in the upper right corner of the component. You can now Zoom In to a particular area of the chart, and Zoom Out one level at time, or Reset the display to the original setting. You can also Pin a section of the chart and drag it to another part of the chart in order to overlay the two line sections. This makes it easier to directly compare two sections of a line chart.
