The computation of the total solar heat gain coefficient (g-value) following the rules of standard ISO 52022-3 (2017) has been implemented. The procedure takes into account the temperature change of panes and gases due to absorption and re-emission of solar radiation. The absorbed solar power and the final temperature of each pane are side-results of the routine and are available in addition to the g-value.
The BREIN prediction page now forwards mouse clicks and mouse moves to the underlying CODE window. This opens the route to interactive operator work.
However, the prediction page of BREIN is updated every second only. This means the user interface is not as responsive as that of CODE itself.
We have developed a new scanner software that connects the Zeiss Optoplex SQL system to BREIN. The program scans database tables for inline and exsitu spectra and feeds new spectra into the corresponding BREIN input folders.
The definition of the trigger event that initiates the re-computation of the prediction page has been improved: You can now specify a range of x, y or z values, in addition to fixed values.
A setting of “1500 … 1600” for y means that the trigger event is fired whenever the condition 1500<=y<=1600 holds. This new feature is useful to handle traverse systems which do not measure at exactly the same positions when scanning a sample.
You can still set unique values like “1567” for the x, y or z coordinates.
This problem has been described in a previous post. The recommended installation of the Microsoft redistributable package does not seem to solve the problem in every case.
We have made the missing DLLs available on our website. You can download the files here and copy them to your SCOUT or CODE program folder directly, without executing any installation routine.
The relevant program folders are (very likely) c:\scout\ (in the case of SCOUT) or c:\code\ (for the CODE software).
On monitors with high dpi values (small pixel size) Windows 10 sometimes decides to scale text output on graphics pages. In this case main view graphics of SCOUT, CODE and BREIN may look ugly, like on low resolution screens.
If this happens on your computer you can right-click the program file (scout.exe, code.exe or brein.exe) and select ‘Properties’ (or ‘Options’) and then open the tab ‘compatibility’. Check the option ‘Disable display scaling on high DPI settings’ as shown below:
That should solve the problem.
Thanks to S. Eraslan for pointing out this solution!
We have fixed a (small) incorrect conversion of X, Y, Z color coordinates to sR, sG and sB computer screen values when the field of view has a cone angle of 10°. The routines for 2° cone angles have not been changed.
The generation of sRGB values for color visualization on computer displays has been improved. Most colors look significantly brighter now. Be aware, however, that you can still not fully trust color visualizations unless you have a calibrated screen.
Starting with object generation 4.50 our software products SCOUT and CODE can handle the latest type of Avantes spectrometers. The new functions are contained in the DLL file avaspec.dll which must be present in the program directory.
If you try to run CODE, SCOUT or SPRAY with object generation 4.50 or higher and you get this message please install the Visual C++ Redistributable package for Visual Studio 2013. Here is the link:
If you follow the ‘Download’ section you have to select the vcredist_x86.exe. Running this will install the required DLL files.
