Rockwell Automation has released its FactoryTalk Batch View software, which enables a “modern batch experience” by improving employee collaboration and system interactions. The software offers an intuitive and scalable, browser-based interface that adapts across smartphones, such as iOS and Android, to tablets and PCs. Users can access real-time information and interact with their process from the plant floor to the production office through a consistent user interface.
Key capabilities include:
- A modern web interface offers easy adaptation to new or existing platforms and environments with backward capability to previous versions of the software; single-server architecture allows for new features and functions to be added with minimal impact to operations.
- Uses common system security policies for access control similar to any workstation, as a node on the plant network.
- Interfaces support multiple mobile devices and are easily integrated with HMI screens onto workstations.
The software is suited for large industrial facilities that have workstation infrastructure limitations, and require multiple access points across the plant.
