ABB IndustrialIT CPMplus Smart Client is now available as an upgrade for System 800xA Automation Sentinel software-management program subscribers with the history option.

The Automation Sentinel program for ABB control-system software management helps customers manage their lifecycle costs by extending support for, and the value of, existing ABB software investments.

With this program, ABB customers keep their installed software products up to date and maintain a flexible and affordable path forward to evolve to the latest system-software versions.

Part of ABB’s Collaborative Production Management Suite, CPMplus Smart Client enhances System 800xA Information Management by allowing customers to securely access System 800xA via any internet connection for real-time visibility into the process, as long as a connection to the plant exists (such as VPN).

CPMplus Smart Client also provides new display and data analysis capabilities for Information Management users.

The Automation Sentinel upgrade provides the licences for the basic functionality of CPMplus Smart Client to customers using System 800xA.

By utilising the extended automation capabilities of System 800xA technology, Smart Client provides intelligent data access and viewing functions in a user-friendly, browser-based display to assist all levels of personnel when they need a real-time window into their operations when they are not on-site.

These displays are available using standard network connections, inside or outside the manufacturing facility.

System 800xA’s single point of change management ensures all updates are automatically reproduced throughout the system, so that any information viewed via Smart Client reflects the up-to-the minute system context, status and process conditions.

Smart Client incorporates the same system-wide authorisation settings as System 800xA, ensuring data security and integrity.

In addition to browser-based graphical displays, Smart Client also provides trending and statistical process control.

Options for alarm and event reporting and a Microsoft Excel interface are also available.

Smart Client is a core component of CPMplus, ABB’s Collaborative Production Management suite of applications.

CPMplus provides process and production management, advanced optimisation and connectivity solutions for the process industries.
