Webinar series: Revitalize your HMI operations

02 May 2024

This three-part webinar series on the FactoryTalk Optix portfolio from Rockwell Automation will provide an overview of how this end-to-end human-machine interface (HMI) solution can revitalize HMI operations across a company's equipment lifecycle. The series also deep dives into how best to design and test HMI projects directly from a web browser with collaborative workflows and version management, create an application once and deploy at scale to many devices, and empower operators with relevant data for faster decision-making.

Part one: Design and collaborate webinar

Today’s digital landscape is evolving rapidly. HMI design engineers need new tools to quickly create intuitive visualization so operators can leverage plant floor data to enable the enterprise. This is where a modern HMI software platform with collaboration tools comes into play. These tools offer comprehensive project visibility within a collaborative design environment so designers can work in teams to maximize productivity.

Part two: Deploy applications at scale

Once FactoryTalk Optix users have leveraged its powerful features to build their applications, the next step is to deploy them out to the field devices. This can be done locally via USB drive or through a LAN, but with FactoryTalk Remote Access you can also connect to Rockwell Automation’s cloud infrastructure to remotely and securely deploy your application via VPN anywhere in the world. In this webinar we’ll provide attendees with a detailed coverage of FactoryTalk Remote Access and our seamless continuum of deployment options, including ASEM 6300 industrial PCs, OptixPanel HMI terminals and Embedded Edge Compute modules. We’ll also talk about how FactoryTalk Optix flexible runtime licensing containerized deployment gives users a real competitive advantage.
