Operating and Monitoring Tasks Now Possible on Mobile Devices with New Visualisation App

The new Visu+ mobile visualisation app from Phoenix Contact brings system visualization to smart phones or tablets. This enables flexible operation and monitoring concepts, with the option of universal access to the system at any time and from any location.
The app meets the growing demand for flexibility in controlling and monitoring tasks by allowing users to use popular consumer devices such as smart phones and tablets. Traditional SCADA functions, including charting of trends and alarm handling, are thus possible on mobile devices. The app is a flexible add-on to the Visu+ visualisation software. The Visu+ Web server required for the app is pre-installed on many devices like the touch panels from Phoenix Contact. To use the app in conjunction with Visu+, the only step necessary is to add the WEB Visu+ license option to industrial PCs.
Fully expanded, up to two clients can be operated using a touch panel or up to 100 clients using an industrial PC at the same time. The HTML visualisation screens for the app are generated in the development environment of the Visu+ visualisation software, making the app even easier to use. In addition, the software can be easily installed via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
