Before you can optimize production, you need to understand where efficiencies can be gained in your plant. To do this, you need a clear view across entire lines and production processes. FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE) is a supervisory-level HMI software for monitoring and controlling distributed-server/multi-user applications. It provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of operations, meeting the demands of multiple stakeholders including engineering, maintenance, operations, and production Information Technology (IT).
FactoryTalk View SE provides robust and reliable functionality in a single software package that scales from a stand-alone HMI system to a distributed visualization solution. As our customers have experienced over the past few years, FactoryTalk View SE enables you to take advantage of mobility, virtualization, and other new technologies, meeting HMI challenges in process, batch and discrete applications and delivering critical visibility when and where you need it.
Technology is an ever-changing landscape - one that evolves so rapidly that it can be hard to keep pace. Exploiting advancements in commercial technology and product investment will help enable you to take advantage of mobility, virtualization, and other new technologies. FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE) will help you prepare for changes in your own environment and deliver:
Improved Run-Time Experience
Configuration and Application Building
Expanded Operating System Support
The computer hardware you choose to install and operate your FactoryTalk® View SE System should be adequately sized for the demands of each component, and meet the following system requirements.
Typically, application servers such as FactoryTalk View SE Server, FactoryTalk Alarms and Events, and RSLinx® Enterprise will need to be sized with faster CPUs and more RAM than operator or engineering workstations. The greater the demand, the more powerful a system you need.
You should also specify a hard drive with enough disk space to provide virtual memory that is at least twice the size of the physical RAM.
