Remote HMI application available on app store
The C-more remote HMI application is available on the iTunes App Store and does not require third party remote desktop VNC-type applications.
AutomationDirect’s new C-more remote HMI application is available through the iTunes App Store and provides remote access and control to mobile users who have a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. A C-more panel with remote connectivity is required, and unlike similar apps in the market, the C-more Remote HMI app does not require third party remote desktop VNC-type applications. Multilevel Logon Security is provided for up to three remote access user accounts that are configured and stored in the panel project. Multilevel access control allows each of the user accounts to be configured in one of three levels of access: full control access, view only access, and view and screen change only access.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
