Software - HMI software: FactoryTalk View 7.0 HMI software offers more efficient alarm management, simplified installation, improved user experience, and integrated data sharing in a wide range of production environments. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice award winner.Manufacturers can gain increased functionality and an enhanced operator experience with FactoryTalk View 7.0 HMI software. FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) and Machine Edition (ME) 7.0 applications offer more efficient alarm management, simplified installation, improved user experience, and integrated data sharing in a wide range of production environments. The software provides scalable HMI solutions that are easier to install, enable operator productivity, and are more tightly integrated to company control and information systems.

FactoryTalk View SE 7.0 software supports larger numbers of HMI clients and servers in a single system, which increases the size of systems that can support FactoryTalk Alarms and Events. This alarming subsystem supports the shelving state and allows users to configure remote-alarming commands on display faceplates, saving crucial time when an operator needs to react to device alarm situations.

A new, improved installation process in FactoryTalk View SE and ME software saves time with a streamlined work flow that automates installation of FactoryTalk View components. For design-time improvements, a new find-and-replace for HMI and global-object displays is available in the FactoryTalk View Studio design environment, so the user can locate and replace tags or strings across multiple servers and screens. For runtime improvements, operators can more quickly and intuitively navigate screens and resolve production issues with a navigation button and display, and move through navigation history. Enhanced graphic capabilities also provide operators with a more realistic view of a process.

A new network-scoped option for FactoryTalk View SE Station software allows users to browse to a FactoryTalk Historian SE server, select tags, and view the historical information for those tags directly on the operator workstation. FactoryTalk View ME 7.0 software offers better device connectivity and diagnostics for Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 6 operator terminal applications and also delivers new ActiveX controls and runtime capabilities.
