In addition, because BridgeVIEW is easily integrated with the company's machine vision and motion control software and hardware, top manufacturers are using it today in production line, process control, pilot plant, remote monitoring, and HMI/SCADA applications. The new version of BridgeVIEW delivers many powerful application development technologies, including:

  • Multithreading.

  • Full OPC client support.

  • ActiveX container.

  • BridgeViEW automation and TCP/IP server.

  • Distributed computing tools.

  • Translation and documentation tools.

  • Programmatic menu bars and undo.

Novice and expert users alike will benefit from these new features, developing faster and more programmatic menu bars reliable measurement and automation applications that take advantage of industry-standard and undo technologies. BridgeVIEW Version 2.0 is available for Windows NT/95.
