Q & A: Honeywell Web Vision Controller. Q. Hello, I have a webvision Controller and can no longer log into my webvision controllers. Was the webvision controller hit with the same JAVA issue as the rest of the tridium line up? If so, what course of action can I take? If not, what is the recommended course of action? A. Yes unfortunately the Webvision and Webstat products are both affected by the wbApplet issue. The product managers are aware of the issue and are aware that people are waiting for a solution. The only work around right now is to use a previous version of JAVA such as JAVA 6 update 45 or JAVA 7 update 17.

    Good job guys. Your mixer setups is right on the money. Voice coming through clear. Eric on mixer setups once you have the perfect, mix then your done. You may want to make a note of the mixer settings and date. This will help you in the future. I will be doing live music streaming from my home studio. Thank you for the good control trends info.

    Sirs -
    I have presented this question to the Niagara coding gurus at Tridium, but to no available.
    What’s funny is that the Tridium guys are asking the coding community to list they works for sales -
    like custom JAR files. Ok I put them to the test.

    It there a super cool Bad-A## JAR file for chiller lead-lag. And I not talking just 2-CH lead-lag, I want
    full multiple chilers (6-8) with multiple pumps and to lead-lag on fault, maintenance switch, calendar or run-time. Why reinvent the wheel – someone must have built it. Is anybody offering the JAR for sale?

    Tx,
    Don C.
