  1. Remote ICC Access: Provides ICC Functions from a networked, Windows-Based PC, without using X-Windows emulation software (like Exceed).  The implementation is basically a client/server setup, and is essentially a Visual-Basic GUI for the ICCAPI.
  2. Windows Look and Feel:  Provides familiar Windows “Look and Feel”, such as copy and paste functionality for parameter entry, and Tree-Views for Compound-Block browsing.
  3. Multiple Simultaneous ICC Sessions:  Allows more than one ICC session per AW/AP host, unlike the standard ICC, which only allows one session per host.  There can be as many open sessions as the number of CPs on the system.
  4. Cross-Referencing: Provides Cross-Referencing abilities.  Any Foxboro block can be cross-referenced to show all other blocks, displays, and legacy historians that are connected to it, even while editing the block.  This feature is not available on the standard ICC.
  5. Allows ICC support on WP70/AW51 hybrid systems.  The standard ICC does not allow  block configuration at a WP70, when the CP host is an AW51.  This program supports ICC functions on any WP70 that is on the same node as the host AW.
  6. ICC Functions Supported:
    1. Block Parameter Edits
    2. Add/Delete Blocks and Compounds
    3. Move blocks and compounds
    4. Copy/Paste (duplicate) Blocks
    5. Sequence Code Editing/Compiling
    6. Upload, Initialize, and Checkpoint CP
    7. View PLB Ladder

Possible Future Enhancements:

  1. PLB Editing (PLB Viewing is available now though).
  2. Allow more than one simultaneous ICC session per CP, so more than one user can be editing a CP (as long as they are not editing the same Block)
  3. Track Control Changes
  4. Change the GUI from the standard Windows GUI to HTML, ActiveX, or Java, so that the user does not need any special client software (they can use a standard browser).
  5. Add other types of historians to report on, other than the legacy Historian (such as AIM and FoxHistory)
  6. Port the server-side of this program to NT, so that this program can work with NT-only systems.
