Advantech is providing compact form factor Windows CE devices certified through the Powered By Wonderware program.
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech and Invensys Operations Management announced their partnership in developing the Wonderware InTouch
"The Powered by Wonderware program, in conjunction with our partners, means that our customers can now order their HMI hardware with runtime software pre-installed, directly from their vendor of choice," said Keith Jones, Invensys Operations Management marketing program manager, Wonderware HMI/SCADA products. "This offers a certified combination of InTouch Compact Edition software and vendor hardware, tested by Wonderware and ready to use out of the box."
