Updated ThinManager Software Enhances Productivity in Industrial Operations

Latest software release gives users more freedom to customize insights and displays to improve decision making

Industrial companies can better tailor production information to their operational needs using the new ThinManager version 11.0 platform from Rockwell Automation. The latest release of the thin client software can help improve productivity, visualisation, security and mobility in a Connected Enterprise.

Companies can improve productivity using the ThinManager software’s new FactoryTalk Activation licensing option. It allows an unlimited number of FactoryTalk View SE sessions to be delivered to a terminal with just one FactoryTalk View SE client license, so workers can access all the information they need to do their jobs without concerns about incurring extra costs. Traditional master licensing will also remain an option for users.

The ability to make more information mobile can also improve productivity. The ThinManager software’s mobile tablet applications have been enhanced to support tiling, virtual screens and IP cameras on iOS and Android tablets. These updates allow a control-room style composite application to be delivered to mobile devices. Now, users can simultaneously monitor multiple content sources while on the move.

Companies can better visualise multiple or large standalone applications using the software’s expanded MultiMonitor feature. It now supports up to seven monitors on a single terminal. This update includes support for the new Allen-Bradley VersaView 5200 Multi 4K Display thin client, which provides up to seven video outputs with 4K resolution.

 Version 11.0 also gives users more flexibility when navigating the ThinManager software’s touch screen. New touch-and-hold functionality can help workers more efficiently access information and make changes.

Other new user benefits in version 11.0 include:

Enhanced Security

Expanding on the ThinManager software’s many authentication options, version 11.0 adds a USB badge-reader module. This gives administrators a wider range of choices for how users securely access content.

Local Language Support

The ThinManager software now includes support for non-English keyboards and the ability to configure the software’s on-screen keyboard in non-English languages. These updates allow users to input data, such as passwords, using their native language and character sets. More localised support features will be added in future software releases.
