  2. [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE] 24U releases 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0 for FileMaker® Pro 14-17 This new version of the popular hardware integration plug-in adds compatibility with VINT Prague, CZ — July 30, 2018 — 24U has released 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0 for FileMaker Pro 14 through 17. The popular plug-in for integrating FileMaker solutions with hardware devices, such as relays, envrionmental sensors, RFID, and more, now adds support for the smart VINT interface announced by Phidgets Inc. in August 2017. About 24U Phidgets Plug-In: 24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro to interact with various Phidgets boards to let your solution control physical devices and physical devices to control your solution. 24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro users to: Read and write RFID tags to track goods, assets and people Capture sensor data to collect environmental data such as temperature or force Control servo motors to automate moving parts of robots and machines Read digital and analog inputs to control your solution by physical controls Set digital outputs to switch lights and other electrical devices Display text on an LCD display to create custom user interface such as cashbox Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment About VINT VINT stands for Versatile Interface, and it's the system that all modern Phidgets use to communicate. The main advantages of VINT are versatility, modularity, connectivity and stability. A VINT Hub Port is a versatile interface that combines the functionality of analog inputs, digital inputs, and digital outputs. The mode of each port can be selected in software by creating a new object and opening it on the desired port. Many VINT devices also come built-in with data and power isolation to prevent power fluctuations from entering the system. Sample uses of 24U Phidgets Plug-In Existing customers use 24U Phidgets Plug-in in a wide range of different industries, including compliance testing of electrical equipment, sorting sheep, opening door to gym for customers identified by RFID loyalty card, or robotics prototyping. “We had a hospital client and we used the 24U Phidgets Plug-In together with an RFID reader for tracking patient charts. The results were quite amazing. Prior to installing this the hospital lost charts on daily basis. When a chart was misplaced it was very difficult to find. The introduction of the chart tracking system meant that everyone knew the location of the chart by looking at the patient screen,” said Joe Byrne, CEO of Glanmire Electronics For Owen Caldwell, technology manager at Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., 24U Phidgets Plug-In makes it possible to prepare useful projects for electrical engineering major students. At FileMaker DevCon 2014 Owen said: “With Phidgets we’ve been able to create projects that are not only pertinent to their field but also beneficial to the workplace. We are looking at wiring up the offices to do 3D temperature mapping. With this I am hoping to be able to determine what effect the occupancy of the office has on the overall environment.” What's new in 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0: Compatibility with VINT lets you use the modern versatile Phidgets devices Support for Stepper Controller Support for SBC 4 Recommended configuration: Mac OS X: Any Intel Mac, 4096 MB RAM, macOS High Sierra 10.13, FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced Windows: Dual Core 1.6 GHz processor, 4096 MB RAM, Windows 10, FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced Minimum requirements: Mac OS X: Any Intel Mac since 2008, 2048 MB RAM, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, FileMaker Pro 14.

  3. First-time setting up a complex (or what I think is complex) database, and really could use some help. The idea is to be able to create an inventory of Computers, Peripherals, Software, and Software Licenses, (and where each is installed/located), along with the Purchase Order information for each item, and the Vendor for each P.O. Here's how I sort of see it breaking down, but I'm confused as to how to setup the tables and relationships: One Computer can have many Purchase Orders associated with it. One Computer can have many Vendors/Manufacturers/Sales Reps associated with it. One Computer can have many pieces of Software installed on it One Computer may have many Peripherals One Computer can have many Change Log entries associated with it. One piece of Software (software title) can be installed on many Computers One piece of Software can have many Licenses associated with it One piece of Software can have many Purchase Orders associated with it. One piece of Software can have many Vendors/Manufacturers/Sales Reps associated with it. One piece of Software can have many Change Log entries associated with it. One License can be installed on only one Computer at a time One License can have only one piece of Software associated with it. One License will have only one Purchase Order associated with it. One License can only have one Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep associated with it. One License can have many Change Log entries associated with it. One Peripheral can only be installed on one Computer at a time One Peripheral can only have one Purchase Order associated with it. One Peripheral can only have one Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep associated with it. One Peripheral can have many Change Log entries associated with it. One Purchase Order can have many Licenses, Peripherals, and/or Computers associated with it. One Purchase Order can have only one Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep associated with it. One Purchase Order can have many Change Log entries associated with it. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many Purchase Orders associated with them. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many Computers associated with them. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many Peripherals associated with them. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many pieces of Software associated with them. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many Licenses associated with them. One Vendor/Manufacturer/Sales Rep can have many Change Log entries associated with them. Change log is: A manually-created list of notes for any changes, upgrades, problems, maintenance events, etc. performed for the entire department. Needs to be filterable/sortable by Date, Computer, Peripheral, Software, License, P.O., Vendor, and/or type of event. Event types would be from a manually-created value list. Would be great if I could have a layout specifically for entering these events. Also, not sure how I would go about entering events if one event affects multiple computers or peripherals at the same time. I might have to just make duplicate entries (one for each piece of equipment) to link an event to each piece of equipment it affects? I've begun setting up tables for: - Computers - Software - Licenses - Peripherals - Installations (join table joining everything?) - Vendors/Manufacturers/Sales Reps - Purchase Orders - Change Log (not sure what fields I need in this) I'm also trying to figure out the Primary Keys and Foreign Keys, how the relationships should work, and how I can create a layout for let's say Computers that will show me: - Computer info (computer name, location, hardware specs from the Computers table) - P.O. number for Computer (from the P.O. table) - List of installed licenses (including software name/version, license number, vendor, and P.O. associated with that license) (portal to the Licenses table, filtered by ComputerID?) - LIst of installed peripherals (including the type of peripheral, manufacturer, name/serial number, vendor/P.O., date of install) (portal to the Peripherals table, filtered by ComputerID?) - Change Log list for that computer, sortable by date and/or type of change. (portal to the Change Log table, filtered by ComputerID?) And a layout for Software that will show me: - Software name/Version - Type of Software (standalone software, software plugin, etc.) - List of Licenses associated with this Software (including software name/version, license number, vendor, and P.O. associated with that license) (portal to the Licenses table, filtered by SoftwareID?) And a layout for Vendors/Manufacturers/Sales Reps that will show me: - Vendor Contact info (sales rep name, phone, email, website, etc.) - List of P.O.s associated with this Vendor, sortable by date, and expandable to see the individual items within that P.O. (such as license numbers and where those licenses are installed, or peripherals and where those peripherals are installed) If anyone has any advice, I sure would love the help. Thanks.
  4. I need to purchase a machine to run Filemaker Server 14. There are six users. Three of the databases are document management with container fields holding pdfs. The client machines are all iMac. In the past, I used an iMac to run the server, but should I really be purchasing a Windows Server to run. Here is the windows machine I was considering purchasing. Anyone have any comments on configuration: Server.pdf
  5. So the two-year experiment with FMP running on five stations has been a success, and the boss has authorized me to buy licenses for all thirteen workplace terminals. I'm looking at the bundle for ten seats of FMP and one install of FM Server. (Our little network will not be very busy for, say, eighteen months, as I start writing, then integrating, databases to handle all the variables that are currently tracked on slips of paper.) We don't have a server - just networked PCs. It's clear to me that for fifteen FMP clients to see databases, I need to have Server installed on a standalone terminal. My question: Will I have a problem if I buy a $400 machine like this one: http://bit.ly/udkQo3 running Windows 7 Professional, and leave it in the corner, not connected to the Internet, running no programs except FM Server, and just administer it (when necessary) via Windows Remote Desktop?
  6. [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE] 24U releases 24U Phidgets Plug-In 2.0 for FileMaker Pro 15 New version of the hardware integration plug-in brings 64-bit compatibility, ability to control Phidgets over network and support for additional boards LAS VEGAS -- July 18, 2016 24U Software has released the version 2.0 of 24U Phidgets Plug-In. This plug-in enables FileMaker Pro to interact with various Phidgets boards to let a database solution control physical devices and physical devices to control the solution. The latest version adds 64-bit compatibility with FileMaker Pro 14 and 15, ability to control distant Phidgets over network, ability to write to writable RFID tags, display text on an LCD display, control 8 servo motors concurrently via single controller board, read data from load cells, control analog electronic devices by variable voltage outputs, and more. About 24U Phidgets Plug-In 24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro users to: - Read and write RFID tags to track goods, assets and people - Capture sensor data to collect environmental data such as temperature or force - Control servo motors to automate moving parts of robots and machines - Read digital and analog inputs to control your solution by physical controls - Set digital outputs to switch lights and other electrical devices - Display text on an LCD display to create custom user interface such as cashbox - Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment Sample uses of 24U Phidgets Plug-In Existing customers use 24U Phidgets Plug-in in a wide range of different industries, including compliance testing of electrical equipment, sorting sheep, opening door to gym for customers identified by RFID loyalty card, or robotics prototyping.

  7. My office has about 20-30 people using FM at any given time, and we're planning to move from Server 11 to 13 in the near future. I have $2K allocated for new hardware. I'm going on the assumption that a Windows server will give a bigger bang for the buck, but I'm certainly amenable to Apple hardware (everything's currently on a Mac Mini server). I've read over the hardware considerations and I basically understand them, but I don't live in the Windows hardware world much, and my head is turning to sawdust trying to put together the best package for my budget. If anyone can offer any recommendations, I'd be grateful. If $2K is simply insufficient in your opinion, that's a valid answer too.
