2020 has brought many changes to the way we operate and perform our day-to-day tasks. In the automation world, facilities are limiting the number of people they have on-site to essential personnel only. All other employees are working remotely. In some roles, this is unproblematic and easy to manage, but in others it is tedious and many responsibilities cannot be performed.
For automation sites that have implemented a Pepperl+Fuchs VisuNet RM Shell thin-client-based architecture for their HMI systems, VisuNet Control Center can be used to make life more manageable inside and outside of the facility. The software allows users to easily communicate, manage, and interface with their entire RM Shell-based thin client installation—whether it consists of desktop thin clients in non-hazardous areas or workstation thin clients in Division 1 areas.
