Visualization products provide a window into critical production process information and enterprise data. These products can accelerate development and enhance operation across every type of industry, application and manufacturing environment.
Your control system continually produces valuable system and production data. Seeing that information - on an operator interface display or a desktop dashboard - helps you and your team make informed decisions that can minimize costs and improve response time. With the right visualization system in place, you achieve enterprise-wide integration of data vital to management, operations and engineering functions.
Manufacturers, especially in the process industries, can gain increased functionality and an enhanced operator experience with HMI software.
Starting with the equipment on your production floor, maintenance and control engineers can now more easily access and utilize information to efficiently maintain production and processes.
Plant-wide optimization means that individuals closest to the equipment see information most relevant to their day-to-day jobs. This data can also be given context, along with data from other systems to make the information meaningful to individuals in other roles.
Dashboards display key production line data for operators, for example, while plant managers have the ability to use this same information to isolate line performance, track scrap costs, and monitor downtime.
Our machine level operator interface is a versatile HMI application that provides a dedicated and powerful solution for machine-level operator interface devices. As an integral element of the Rockwell Automation visualization solution, FactoryTalk View Machine Edition provides superior graphics, run-time user management, language switching and faster commissioning time through a common development environment.
FactoryTalk View Machine Edition allows for a consistent operator interface across multiple platforms, including PanelView Plus and Windows desktop solutions and consists of:
Before you can optimize production, you need to understand where efficiencies can be gained in your plant. To do this, you need a clear view across entire lines and production processes. FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) is supervisory-level HMI software for monitoring and controlling distributed-server/multi-user applications. It provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of operations, meeting the demands of multiple stakeholders including engineering, maintenance, operations, and production Information Technology (IT).
FactoryTalk View SE provides robust and reliable functionality in a single software package that scales from a stand-alone HMI system to a distributed visualization solution. As our customers have experienced over the past few years, FactoryTalk View SE enables you to take advantage of mobility, virtualization, and other new technologies, meeting HMI challenges in process, batch and discrete applications and delivering critical visibility when and where you need it.
On the road, at home or in the office, FactoryTalk ViewPoint provides a secure interface with FactoryTalk View's graphics, trending, and alarming applications through a Web browser. FactoryTalk ViewPoint 8.0 extends the access to FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) and Machine Edition (ME) applications to users anywhere for improved real-time decision making.
As an add-on to FactoryTalk View SE and PanelView Plus, FactoryTalk ViewPoint delivers a rich, interactive experience that includes real-time and historical trending. You gain the simplicity of standard browser navigation and new degrees of access to critical FactoryTalk View information all in a web browser. With zero administration capabilities, there is no client software to install and maintain, lowering total cost of ownership.
