EC: Studio Mobile Access
Software - Mobile apps for controls, automation, instrumentation: Mobile Access allows operators, maintenance staff and managers to be more efficient by securely viewing and interacting with process variables, trends and alarms from any HTML5 device, such as iPad, iPhone, or Android tablet/phones. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Award winner.
Use Mobile Access to securely monitor or access process values, trends and alarms with remote devices such as tablets and mobile phones. This enhanced Mobile Access offers data in easy-to-read widgets that can be viewed on any HTML5 based web browser found on iPads, and Android phones and tablets.
Efficiency: Being able to securely access a machine remotely or view dashboards of trends across a plant floor give machine operators and process managers a chance to make adjustments even when they're not able to be physically at the machine. This may include stopping a machine when certain values are not met, or knowing at a glance whether or not an entire plant is operating at the expected levels. A mobile SCADA solution is particularly valuable to anyone with remote facilities in hard-to-access places.
Preventive care: a mobile solution can not only make things more efficient, it can also help guard against disaster. If machine operators and managers are notified of problems immediately wherever they are, it's possible to take action before product is wasted, or the machine is damaged. Regular alerts can also let users know when it is time to perform preventive maintenance on machines such as lubrication or filter replacement.
Acknowledge alarms and maintain traceability: Some regulations, such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11, require that alarms be acknowledged and traced to the user who acknowledged them. A solution such as InduSoft's Mobile Access will allow this to occur on any HTML5 enabled device, whether it's an Android phone, an iPad, or desktop computer. Choose InduSoft Mobile Access to be more efficient and understand what is happening, even when you aren't right there.
