Two Automation Tools to Help Collaboration

Description

Rockwell Automation introduces two tools to improve collaboration on the plant floor: FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices appliance and a FactoryTalk TeamONE Standard Edition app.

 

These off-the-shelf offerings require minimal configuration and can help solve common maintenance problems faster, which keeps unplanned downtime at a minimum. The appliance and app quickly help improve reaction time for maintenance teams and assist decision makers with health and diagnostics analytics for industrial devices and systems. To further streamline the adoption process, a new e-commerce portal is used to manage the new offerings. All subscriptions and management can take place within a single, self-service portal. 


FactoryTalk TeamONE app

 

The app is a new edition that has an added alarm module that gives users the ability to view all active alarms. Alarms requiring immediate action can be shared with specific team members or posted to the entire team for group management and resolution.

 

The app requires no server, device to cloud gateways, or IT setup for manufacturers. It is currently available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store, and a new user account takes just minutes to set up. 

 

FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices Appliance

 

FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices is a hardened appliance that helps avoid costly downtime and improve productivity by identifying device health. With just a connection to power and a local control system network, the appliance begins providing analytics within minutes.



After the connections are made, the application detects automation devices on the network without disrupting performance. Plant-floor teams then gain access to specific calls-to-action, instant device displays and an advanced machine-learning-based chat bot, which are all available from within the appliance. The appliance learns what is important to users by continuously analyzing the devices on the network and delivering recommendations to help maintenance and engineering teams prevent unplanned downtime and repair systems more quickly. 



The appliance can detect and perform a basic analysis on any EtherNet/IP device. The appliance also has detailed analytics for over 2,000 Allen-Bradley devices.
