The Fisher ROC Plus Serial device driver provides data exchange between OPC/DDE clients and ROC Plus protocol devices.
Improved the driver's EFM data collection performance and efficiency when intermittent communication errors occur with the connection to the EFM data source. The optimizations are automatically handled in the driver: no project configuration changes were required in the driver UI.
Added support for the use of legacy tag names as part of Automatic Tag Generation. This enhancement was made to resolve a change introduced in the 5.8 release where tag formats created via Automatic Tag Generation were different than previous versions. This tag format issue only affects users who upgraded to version 5.8 and triggered tag regeneration.
For new installations of Fisher ROC Plus driver (server version V5.9 and up), the default setting for this checkbox is 'checked' so legacy tag names are used.
Added support for Channel Serialization, Inter-Device Delay, and RTS Line Control. Updated the Operator Identification tab in Device Properties to be more consistent with ROCLINK configuration software. Consolidated Tag Import Settings under a single tab in Device Properties.
