What's new in 3.01

In addition all that Aspect 3.0 has to offer in terms of user friendly dashboards, graphics and templates, scheduling and alarms Aspect 3.01 also offers the following enhanced capabilities:



Distributed/Supervisor Functionality


  • Schedules
    Remote Schedules in Aspect Satellites, BACnet devices and UC controllers can now be accessed in the same way as local Schedules within the Aspect Supervisor. Settings from a master Schedule can be copied to many remote Schedules in a single Bulk Change action.
  • Security Enhancements
    The Aspect HTML5 UI can now be configured to use SSL encryption, giving a secure HTTPS browser connection, and avoiding the security warning messages that are now common in major browsers.




  • Trends in Aspect Satellites and UC controllers can now be embedded in the Aspect Supervisor’s map and accessed in the same way as local Trends within the Aspect Supervisor.
  • Aspect can now authenticate users with Microsoft Active Directory or LDAP.



Improved Traceability Tools


  • The Aspect Audit trail now has a “disposition” property associated with every event, so that a user-generated log message can be stored to explain why an event occurred.
  • Newly-added Change of Value (CoV) custom trending allows points to be logged more frequently when required, and to record alarm occurrences.


Both of these enhancements can assist clients in building a system that complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11


Other Enhancements


  • Engineering Centre integration 
    An engineered Unitron Site can be exported from Engineering Centre in a single operation, and imported into Aspect, requiring minimal configuration.
  • Bulk setpoint and schedule change
    Setpoints and Schedules can be copied from an Aspect Supervisor to many Setpoints and Schedules throughout one or more Sites at once.
  • Modbus in the Map
    Modbus devices can now be configured from inside the Aspect Map for simpler configuration and better integration with the BEMS.
  • Graphics enhancements 
    Items in an Aspect graphic can now be aligned automatically to simplify layout.
