Application transforms iPhone, iPad, and iPod into HMIs
ProSoft i-View from ProSoft Technology is a mobile phone application for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod that transforms these devices into mobile HMIs to enable real-time remote process control for engineers, plant floor operators and maintenance technicians.
Using ProSoft’s 802.11 industrial wireless or cellular solutions, ProSoft i-View allows control engineers to remotely monitor and modify live data from programmable automation controllers (PAC) on an EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/IP network, including flow measurements, valve control, process data and status data. For 802.11 plant-floor network access, the WiFi function of the phone can be utilized in conjunction with ProSoft Technology 802.11 Industrial Hotspot solutions. For applications with wide geographic disparity such as pipeline and well-head monitoring, or where engineers require access from long distances, the ProSoft Technology Intelligent Cellular series can be utilized to broaden the range of access.
