The launch of My Equipment Digital enables new functionality with digital collection and updating of industrial automation asset data through the use of network-based devices. The digital collection method includes firmware information and a one-time vulnerability assessment.
Customers can self-manage and track their installed base automation assets through their My Equipment subscription, enhancing their ability to reduce operational costs, improve asset utilization and decrease enterprise risk. The self-manage feature can be added to an Installed Base Evaluation™ (IBE® service) and is included in the My Equipment Digital and My Equipment Managed offerings.
With My Equipment, customers can:
- Mitigate network risks if legacy products and/or unmanaged switches are found
- Review their modernization potential to determine risks and productivity improvement opportunities by identifying which older products may be less expensive to repair than to buy new
- Provide adequate remote support coverage by confirming that the most prevalent technical segments are covered
- Reduce costs through the optimization of asset and spares strategies by comparing storeroom data to the installed base, and the identification of warranty savings
Customers are empowered to take a more active role in asset management with My Equipment Digital, part of myRockwellAutomation.com portal.
