As your fleet of assets grows, maintaining and monitoring those assets becomes not only more important, but more challenging. What firmware version is the asset on? Do we have any faults? How is the asset running and performing? These are but a few of the questions that plague operators every day.
GE’s latest innovation in Industrial Ethernet Switches provides control operators another way to manage and monitor their network directly in their control management tools such as Proficy Machine Edition.
With the high-performance capability of gigabit ports, this latest series of PROFINET managed switches easily prioritize, partition and organize user’s network and provide reliable and good quality services. It is ideal for factory automation applications.
For any of you that have had a chance to work with the GE Quickpanel View, you will know what I am talking about. You have a handful of QP View units (perhaps more), you have 10 or 20 users, and several security levels that need to be setup, and now you have to do this on each and every QP View, one at a time, using the EditUserList command.
