System (20)

No. Sinolta is a 64-bit platform. 32-Bit Operating Systems have memory restrictions that will interfere with the operation of Sinolta.

Category: System

You can run Sinolta on either desktop or server.

Category: System

Embedded Windows are customized to support specific features. Since we don’t have the information and control over third party embedded images, we cannot tell if Sinolta will run or not. It takes minimal effort to install the Sinolta Trial version and try some of the sample projects. Check the error log. If the system runs and there are no error messages, you will have an excellent chance of success.

Open your configuration from the Database Builder and use Archive to archive your configuration into a single archived file. You can store this configuration on a different computer as a backup configuration.
You can either use the redundant data logging to log all your historical data on a separate computer (must map the drive), or you can use standard backup utilities that can synchronize your historian folder with its mirrored folder on a different computer.

Sinolta has a built-in UPS service to interact with a smart UPS and coordinate a graceful shutdown and restart of the system during power failures. If you run your computer with an intelligent UPC that has a digital communication, you can set up your system as follows to handle both short term and long term power failures:
Set up the computer to go to sleep mode after the battery level reaches a low threshold to give your computer enough time to close all applications and go to sleep mode gracefully. This setting is a function of the size of your computer and the UPS battery capacity.
From the Database Builder, go to the Tools menu and Set up, Sinolta UPS service, to gracefully shutdown Sinolta processes well before the computer goes to sleep mode.
Set up the Recovery threshold high enough that the system comes back when the power is stable. For example, set up the recovery level to something like 60% battery capacity. Sinolta UPS service automatically starts the system once the battery level reaches to the recovery level.
Using Sinolta UPS service, your system will ride through short term power outages and will go through a graceful automated shutdown and restart for long term power outages.

From System Manager, right-click on a project and set its Autostart property for Auto Start.
It takes a few minutes for Sinolta Services to start, and then your projects go through full start-up processes.
To start your real-time viewer without prompting you for username and password, from Real-time viewer File menu, create an Express View and select no login option.
Close your current real-time viewer session and start the Express View file that you just created. You will notice that this file does not prompt you for username and password.
Add this file in your start-up folder to start-up on computer start; however, since the Real-time viewer can only connect to the projects that are fully executing, you must apply some delays on start-up to ensure your project is running before real-time viewer automatically start.

Check the Task’s start-up sequence and ensure its start-up sequence is set up properly
Check the error log to see if the task has reported any error messages.

Category: System

Check the error log for error messages. Usually, the error message provides some indication of what the issue is.
Depending on the task, you may have to make some adjustments to your configuration to address the issue.

After downloading the new version of Sinolta, run the installation wizard. If your license requires registration, go through the registration process. If not, then open the Database Builder and select “Upgrade Projects” to upgrade your old configuration to the current version.
Alternatively, if you have an archived file for your project, from the database builder, select “Restore projects” to restore the archived file. The Restore Archive process will automatically upgrade your configuration. Once the project is upgraded, you can start running your project with the new version of Sinolta.

EVENTA and Rocket were code names for Sinolta that were used for a short period. The official commercial name of the product is Sinolta.

Category: System

Yes, the System Manager is used to start and stop projects as well as monitor their execution, but once a project has been started, it will continue to run in the background, even if the system manager is not running.

Sinolta HMI builder supports VB Script
Sinolta Automation supports .Net VB and .Net C#
Sinolta will support Java scripting in HMI Builder in Q2 2020
Sinolta Automaton will support Java and Python in Q2 2020

Category: System

Sinolta can run on any supported Windows operating system. This includes Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows 2012 server, Windows 2016 server, and Windows 2019 server.

Category: System

You can use remote desktop to download your configuration to the remote sever. Sinolta will be able to publish its configuration and new versions of the platform to remote servers in Q2 2020.

Category: System

Yes. However, you will have to use either cloud or enterprise license as the standard server license will not accept VM environment.

Memory requirements depend heavily on your project size and configuration. The smallest Sinolta project will require 1 GB (in addition to the OS). The biggest user of memory is the Sinolta Historian. You will need to perform some bench tests to decide how much memory you need. As a general guideline, plan for 4GB RAM for systems with up to 5,000 points. 8GB RAM for systems with up to 20,000 points and so on.

Category: System

The CPU requirements are a direct function of the dynamics of your system. Sinolta is a highly multi-thread system. While the faster, the better, it is the number of cores that makes a difference.
We recommend using a system with 4 cores (8 logical processors) or better. If you are planning to have intensive data logging and several simultaneous users, we would recommend using more cores. As a general term, the faster the computer, the quicker the system will respond. The other factor that plays an important role is the future growth for this system. You can start small and upgrade your computer later or set up a large server that will be good for the next 10 years.

Yes, but we cannot guarantee the future versions of Sinolta can run on Windows 7 after Windows 7 is discontinued.
