Increase uptime, decrease maintenance costs with FactoryTalk AssetCentre

Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk AssetCentre, a software tool that streamlines change management

01/10/2008


Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk AssetCentre , a software tool that streamlines change management and helps manufacturers leverage automation assets, is built on the FactoryTalk Services Platform to provide a centralized tool for gathering, managing, and securing data on automation assets such as control systems, drives and human-machine interface devices. The application offers a set of asset-centric tools designed to improve production system security, minimize risk, maximize uptime, and improve operational efficiency. The FactoryTalk suite of plant-wide information software offers a flexible solution to reduce costs and extend the lifecycle of existing investments. FactoryTalk AssetCentre expands that objective by helping to securely and centrally manage factory and process automation production environments by securing access to the control system, tracking users' actions, managing asset configuration files, configuring process instruments, and providing backup and recovery of operating asset configurations. FactoryTalk AssetCentre is part of the Asset Management production discipline in the FactoryTalk suite, which delivers business benefits across six production disciplines. The scalable software applications are designed for integration with the Rockwell Automation Logix Control Platform, plus connectivity to third-party and legacy systems.
