The VersaView 5000 portfolio of architectural industrial computers is the latest open architecture HMI or industrial computer offering business manager for control systems that give manufacturers greater freedom to install the software that fits their needs. The portfolio also includes the largest ever full-HD screen size, which can display more information and replicate control room displays on the plant floor for more efficient data sharing. VersaView 5200 thin clients are the first from Rockwell automation designed to be the preferred thin client hardware for use with the company’s ThinManager software.
The software centrally manages content and visualization for every aspect of modern industrial operations. It can help reduce downtime and maintenance by simplifying the management of all devices and users. And its location-based Relevance technology from Rockwell Automation can deliver the right content, to the right worker, at the right time and place.
ThinManager Architectural Industrial Computers, when used with the VersaView 5200 thin clients, can start receiving information as soon as they are plugged in
The device configuration is not needed, resulting in faster device replacement. Because information is stored on a server instead of locally, sensitive information is less likely to be lost if a device goes missing. The ThinManager software also provides multifactor user authentication, including biometric authentication using fingerprint scanning.
The VersaView 5000 portfolio Rockwell automation computers help in reducing maintenance needs. It uses a supercapacitor, which mitigates the need to replace batteries and simplifies air shipment logistics. In addition, an edge-to-edge, all-glass touchscreen reduces cleaning efforts by eliminating the residue buildup that can occur on traditional systems.
When the VersaView 5000 portfolio is combined with FactoryTalk View Site Edition software from Rockwell Automation in distributed applications, the VersaView 5400 industrial computers can provide compliance with 21 CFR Part 11. The software stores, processes and transmits electronic records and signatures to show which employees have made changes. This is critical for highly regulated industries like the life sciences.
