Zontec Releases Synergy 2000 Multi-Function Toolbox v. 2.0

Seamless data automation regardless of equipment

Published: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - 12:22

(Zontec: Cincinnati, OH) -- Zontec Inc., an international developer of statistical process control (SPC) software solutions, has released an update to its Synergy 2000 Multi-function Toolbox for its customers worldwide.

“We believe that data automation should be transparent to the customer,” says Zontec’s president, Warren Ha. “Because each customer’s needs are unique we designed the Multi-function Toolbox to be flexible.” The Multi-function Toolbox automatically collects data in real time from programmable logic controllers, coordinate measurement machines, and similar plant hardware.

The Multi-function Toolbox also enables companies to seamlessly transfer legacy data from other applications or databases, integrate data from manufacturing applications such as enterprise resource planning, laboratory management systems, supervisory control and data acquisition systems as well as serve as a communication bridge between (open platform connectivity) OPC servers and the Synergy 2000 OPC client.

“For those in the automotive industry, the Multi-function Toolbox also supports the AIAG Quality Measurement Data Specification as an open exchange format into Synergy 2000 from standard gauging devices,” notes Ha.

“We are excited about the release of version 2.0 of the Synergy 2000 Multi-function Toolbox,” says Cary Williams, the process leader for Amantea Nonwovens LLC. “The Synergy 2000 Multi-function Toolbox has made it easier for us to look at our data over time. It has facilitated our continuous process improvement efforts.”

Here is a brief highlight of some of the new cutting-edge features:
• Ability to connect to multiple OPC servers
• Save selected tags as a group in OPC client
• Import data from any database through open database connectivity
• Setup data transfers for multiple comma-separated values (CSV) files
• Updated to latest version of Microsoft Net 4.0
