New range of open architecture industrial computers and thin clients

24 September 2017

A new family of Allen-Bradley VersaView 5000 industrial computers, thin clients and monitors from Rockwell Automation can help end users modernise standalone or distributed HMI applications to support smart manufacturing.

The open architecture design of the new range is said to offer manufacturers greater freedom to install the software that fits their needs. The portfolio also includes the largest ever full-HD screen size, which can display more information and replicate control room displays on the plant floor for more efficient data sharing.
The VersaView 5000 portfolio, part of the Rockwell Automation scalable compute offerings, includes five products – VersaView 5400 display and non-display computers; VersaView 5200 display and non-display thin clients; and VersaView 5100 monitors.
When combined with FactoryTalk View Site Edition software from Rockwell Automation in distributed applications, the VersaView 5400 industrial computers is said to provide cost-effective compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.
The VersaView 5200 thin clients, the first from Rockwell Automation, are designed for use with the company’s ThinManager software. The software centrally manages content and visualisation for industrial operations. Simplifying management of all devices and users can help reduce downtime and maintenance, says the company.
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 quick device replacement.
