What’s new in this version? 

New features 

For our PROFINET bus monitor ibaBM-PN a new module “Sniffer SiLink” is available in the IO-Manager which can be used to record data transmitted over a SINAMICS Link connection. This is can be used as a replacement solution for our discontinued product ibaBM-SiLink.

For TwinCAT-Xplorer and TwinCAT-Request users new options for unloading address books and preventing automatic updates of address books are available. This helps to reduce the memory consumption in ibaPDA systems with many TwinCAT-Xplorer or TwinCAT-Request modules.

Improvements 

Our ibaPDA client ActiveX control can now also be used in Rockwells HMI system FactoryTalk.

The MELSEC-Xplorer interface now supports the additional read modes “Random read” and “Monitor mode” which improves the read performance for many MELSEC CPU types.

The English and German online help has been updated.

The OPC UA client interface as well as the OPC UA server support authentication by certificate.

Important bugfixes 

Several bugs regarding the OPC UA client address book generation and output handling have been fixed.

Bugs related to the OPC UA client/server certificate handling have been fixed.

Memory leaks when using PTP or IEC61850 GOOSE protocol have been fixed.

Several bugs in the ibaHD Server Event table have been fixed.
