Run Real Time or Simulation Modes




Mode Menu: Simulation & Real Time Monitoring of Controls

The Mode menu allows a user to run the KilnView software in Real Time or Simulation mode. 

Simulation Mode: The simulation mode is only used in demo versions of the software or customer testing and training.  All data is auto generated by the system. 

Real Time Mode: The software always starts in real time mode for system safety with the software monitoring the configured input controls; i.e. FDC-2010-K5C, Series 300 Controls, etc. 

This Mode [choice of Simulation & Real Time] can be locked out in the configure users section of the program.

Registering and Obtaining Unlock Code to run in Real Time

The KilnView software package must be registered to operate properly on a PC.  After installation, when the software is first started, the following screen will be displayed:

The User ID displays a code specific to the PC that the software is being installed on.  Call Future Design with the User ID code and we will immediately email an unlock code (or give it over the phone) to register the software.  Once the software is registered, the “register” dialog will no longer appear during software startup.

If you choose not to register the software, KilnView will run in simulation mode only (will not communicate with kiln or single loop controllers) until the software is registered.
