Extended Line of Thin Clients Help Increase Flexibility Across the Enterprise

VersaView 5200 thin client portfolio from Rockwell Automation helps simplify management of devices and users

With many applications on multiple displays throughout a plant floor, manufacturers struggle to manage numerous sources of content. VersaView 5200 from Rockwell Automation uses ThinManager software to help manufacturers more easily manage their applications.

 “The latest additions to the VersaView 5200 portfolio allow end-users to choose a single display or multiple displays with a variety of resolution options,” said Christo Buys, Business Manager, Rockwell Automation. “Customers leveraging ThinManager software can now match the right thin client hardware to their specific application needs.” The VersaView 5200 thin client portfolio from Rockwell Automation helps simplify management of devices and users.

The expanded VersaView 5200 portfolio includes five thin clients: single display, dual display, dual 4K display, multi 4K display and integrated display. The multi 4K is the first in the industry to offer seven displays and is exclusively supported by ThinManager software.

 The VersaView 5200 non-display thin client options are ideal for use with VersaView 5100 monitors. This two-piece solution separates the monitor and thin client, so either can be replaced independently.

The VersaView 5200 thin clients are designed to be used exclusively with ThinManager software. The software centrally manages content and visualisation for every aspect of modern industrial operations. It can help reduce downtime and maintenance by simplifying the management of all devices and users. The location-based Relevance technology from Rockwell Automation can deliver targeted content based on role and location.

 When used with the ThinManager software, the VersaView 5200 thin clients can start receiving information as soon as they are plugged in. Device configuration is not needed, resulting in faster device replacement. Information is stored on a server to help protect sensitive information. The ThinManager software also provides multifactor user authentication, including biometric authentication using fingerprint scanning.
