In today’s manufacturing environment of continuous improvement, the analysis of production or process data is an ongoing effort. The ability to drive improvements into the process, based on actual real time information is essential. Being able to incorporate an industrial PC with its powerful analysis and communication applications (i.e. Excel, Word, Access, Outlook etc.) directly into the control and data flow is a primary advantage.
When the engineer couples a cMT-iPC10/15 with a cMT-SVR he/she can run EasyBuilder Pro software to work directly, via fully functional HMI with the plant floor devices, and then channel the resultant data immediately into the appropriate analysis applications. The resulting analysis can be shared in real time with colleagues within the plant or around the world, increasing productivity, quality and reliability, driving down costs and travel expenses, and also saving time.
The cMT-iPC10 and the cMT-iPC15 both include a 1.75 GHz dual core 64 bit CPU, 32 GB SAD and 4 GB RAM. The cMT-iPC10 boasts a 9.7 TFT display with 1024 x 768 resolution. The cMT-iPC15 has a similar 15-in. high resolution display. The operating system is either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
