Rockwell Automation has announced the availability of its Allen-Bradley Panelview Plus 6 human-machine interface (HMI) and upgraded versions of Factorytalk View and Factorytalk Viewpoint applications.

The visualisation and information products are designed to enhance runtime performance and operator experience while reducing deployment time and costs.

The Panelview Plus 6 terminal includes more memory with faster refresh rates and more on-device storage.

Every Panelview Plus 6 includes the latest Factorytalk View Machine Edition (ME) and Factorytalk Viewpoint software running on the Windows CE 6.0 operating system.

Factorytalk View ME 6.0 software provides the Panelview Plus 6 with time-saving design enhancements, including an extensive graphics library, enhanced colour animation capability and access to a multi-language font library.

The terminal can directly reference tags created for a controller and comes with a factory-default option, reducing troubleshooting to increase uptime.

The latest version supports Windows 7 and has achieved VMware-ready status.

Factorytalk Viewpoint further enhances the system’s interoperability by providing remote access for web browser-enabled devices.

Factorytalk View ME 6.0 can also be purchased separately to provide Panelview-functionality through an Allen-Bradley industrial computer.

For distributed HMI users, Factorytalk View Site Edition (SE) 6.0 software also includes an upgraded design environment through Factorytalk View Studio to help customers build applications more quickly.

Factorytalk SE 6.0 now supports Windows 7 and SQL Server 2008 and has VMware-ready status.

It also offers Factorytalk Alarms and Events server redundancy, safeguarding a common, consistent view of alarms and events occurring throughout an entire Factorytalk system.

For manufacturers that require up-to-the-minute production information from multiple locations, Factorytalk Viewpoint 1.2 software provides access to real-time operations data by logging onto an internet browser.

As a web-enabled HMI application, it extends access to Factorytalk View displays and dashboards to users anywhere for improved real-time decision-making.

The new version supports the latest operating systems and web clients to expand usability of this thin-client application in a variety of web environments and wireless devices.

Newly supported environments include the Microsoft Windows CE 6.0-based Allen Bradley Panelview Plus 6, Factorytalk View ME and SE 6.0 software, Microsoft Windows 7 server, VMware server and Microsoft Explorer 8.
