· Sensor groups are now supported. I-Calcs can reference group(s) and so a change to a group will automatically modify all the I-Calcs that use the group.
· Temperature and humidity groups can now be summarized separately. (See also multi calculation below)
· Validator 2000 latest firmware is now supported.
· New driver for some TecnoSoft data loggers.
· Updates to reports which now include printed on and by. Also ‘Performed by’ and ‘Reviewed by’ will appear more in reports and can be used either for electronic signature or for manual signatures.
· Templates made with Designer now support trends. So right click on a calculation result and the software will collect data from date range of reports and make a trend in Excel.
· Software can now log multiple chambers at the same time using one logger. Channel assignment changes are managed by the software so you can use the same test specification on the multiple chambers without worrying about channel references and locations etc.
· New multi calculation introduced. It will store max, min, average, std dev and uncertainty. This means many times less I-Calcs are needed to produce summary sheets. The 7.1.0 install includes a sample test called ‘Stability Analysis 9 Temp 3 Humidity’ and it uses the new I-Calcs and groups to separate temperature and pressure. To illustrate there is a new summary sheet in Report Lists under ‘Sample Reports Stability/Stability Summary Channel 1-20’.
· Bath and reference temperatures can now be logged, and bath temperature controlled by I-Calcs, for custom calibration procedures.
· Fluke 1586A and 2638A default scan rate setting now depends on Fast/Medium/Slow setting. Also there is now a check box in Logger Control to always use the custom scan rate setting for calibrations.
· Fluke 1586A and 2638A driver now supports resistance and thermistors.
· Designer now supports look up tables for user entered data.
· Legacy Fluke Hydra II drivers no longer reserve TQSoft channel 1 for the Fluke channel 001! J
· 3 Decimal place support for IRTD reference temperature.
· Designer duplicate option will now auto increment probe numbers, making your time more productive!
· Chambers can be specified as cylindrical and the 3D wire diagram will support this.
· Chambers can now have a work zone specified. The work zone can be seen in the 3D diagram and sensors positioned with respect to work zone.

TQSoft™ and TQAero version 6.0.5 has been released.
The new version now includes:
1) Driver for the new Fluke Hydra model 2638A. 2) Support for the new Fluke Hydra 2638A includes memory and storage option data file management, so users can use their Fluke unit independently of a PC and return to PC TQ installation to collect data from the unit and make reports in a secure CFR Part 11/NADCAP compliant process. 3) New driver for Fluke 9190A Ultra-Cool Field Metrology Well. 4) Now includes intelligent CSV file import. This means that the software will likely be able to swiftly interpret and import all your data and calibration Setpoints stored in text or spreadsheets.

TQSoft™ version 6 software now has drivers for:
Agilent 34972A data acquisition unit including support for onboard memory for thermal validation. MadgeTech HT140 and PR140 for thermal validation. Gemini splash and ultra loggers for thermal validation. Yokogawa MW, GP and GX serioes recorders for thermal validation. Beamex FB range drywell baths for temperature calibration. Ametek Jofra RTC, PTC range drywell baths for temperature calibration. Ametek Jofra DTI1050 temperature reference for calibration. Fluke 9190A drywell bath for temperature calibration.

TQSolutions Ltd. is proud to release TQSoft™ and TQAero Version 6 software. Version 6 contains significant additional functionality for the thermal validation community. The highlight of this is a 3D representation of a defined space showing the temperature mapping at sensor locations in digital or colour format. The 3D diagram can be rotated and expanded to any view point, and a data time slider even adds the fourth dimension! Critical points can now be 'replayed' inside a 3D chamber.

TQSoft™ had a successful showing at Interphex in New York last week. Its ability to utilize loggers from a wide range of manufacturers was considered a significant benefit over rival thermal validation systems. It was commented that thermal validation companies involved in different projects, as diverse as sterilizer validation and storage facilities monitoring, would find a compelling business case for acquiring TQSoft™ both for existing loggers and sensors and for new investments.
TQSoft™ version 5.3.7 has been released and now fully supports MadgeTech RTD110 & RTD101 loggers for storage monitoring and storage validation. It also allows for logger times in 24 hour format for MadgeTech logger. It now has ability to read Hart Scientific models 917X and 914X Reference sensor if one is installed on the bath.
Version 5.3.7 also has smart comparison of thermal validation chart trace color with text color to ensure trace labelling is as clear as possible for the eye.
Use of USB to RS232 serial adaptors is now universal. As a result some customers find it difficult to keep track of which COM port to select. Latest version 5.3.7 now allows smart COM port search on certain thermal validation and calibration equipment.
