2015 Product of the Year Finalists: Apps for Engineers
Finalists in the Apps for Engineers category for the Plant Engineering 2015 Product of the Year competition.
Remote HMI mobile application
EZ-RMC from EZAutomation is a mobile application that provides remote human-machine interface (HMI) access with SCADA-like features from any Apple iOS or Android device. The app allows users to access their EZTouch HMI or EZ-SOFT HMI running on any computer at the touch of a button. EZ-RMC connects to the EZAutomation HMI through its unique IP address. With this app, the user has full access and control—in real time—to all screens of the HMI program running on the machine. For safety precautions, the application offers eight different levels of password protection and can be set up for just monitoring or monitoring and control.
Cloud-based wireless software, test tool system
Fluke Connect Assets is a cloud-based wireless system of software and test tools that gives maintenance managers a comprehensive view of critical equipment—including baseline, historical, and current test tool measurement data; current status; and past inspection data—enabling them to set up and sustain a preventive maintenance or condition-based maintenance system. It features one-step measurement transfer from more than 30 Fluke Connect wireless test tools, eliminating manual recording of measurements. The system's features allow maintenance managers to analyze multiple types of predictive data (e.g. electrical, vibration, infrared images) all in one program, side by side, in a visual format that enables easy scanning.
