To simplify management of industrial applications and devices, Rockwell Automation has updated its ThinManager software. The latest release of the thin client management software includes new content delivery methods.
Improvements in the software include a new web browser display client that does not rely on Remote Desktop Services. This new application delivery method provides greater flexibility for delivering content and paves the way for more display client options in future releases.
The updated ThinManager software also supports the Allen-Bradley VersaView 6300 thin clients and industrial PCs. The thin clients are ThinManager ready right out of the box. The industrial PCs are ThinManager compatible. They can be used as a PC, a thin client or both at the same time to help improve the reliability of visualization applications. Expanded compatibility and strategic licensing options for the FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) software are also available in the new release.
To support a wider range of users globally, the ThinManager software now allows for all strings and on-terminal commands and prompts to be displayed in a user’s local language.
The ThinManager software also continues to expand visualization options for users. The latest version of the software offers:
- An updated configuration wizard for multiple monitors.
- A freeform-style layout tool instead of limited preconfigured layouts.
- Support for portrait mode in any monitor configuration.
- The use of landscape and portrait screens on a single terminal.
