03/10/2009


The latest version of the IndustrialIT cpmPlus Smart Client from ABB is a thin client for use with System 800xA. This release includes enhancements for expanded visibility of alarms and events, improved navigation, and streamlined access to all connected plant 800xA systems.
Smart Client provides secure, view only, browser-based access to multiple plant systems from any network connection. It helps users securely access their ABB or third-party automation systems via an internet browser for real-time visibility into the process. The units do not require programming to configure them, nor separate data definitions, but instead use existing data definitions in System 800xA.
The latest version of Smart Client includes improved alarm and event display functionality, so that users quickly identify the root cause of problems. Users can navigate to the real-time alarm and event status from the data values on the user’s role-based dashboard, where all information is displayed in a meaningful context. Smart Client is a core component of cpmPlus, ABB’s Collaborative Production Management suite of applications.
