FactoryTalk AssetCentre v7.0 software from Rockwell Automation automates discovery and tracks the status of devices, network switches and software on workstation computers across an entire facility or production operation. The software streamlines life-cycle management and helps decrease unplanned downtime.
The FactoryTalk AssetCentre asset-inventory agent scans a network to discover hardware, firmware and software information for assets active in the facility. The devices are then tracked in an active asset inventory. Ongoing tracking of updates provides a history of how a system has changed and potential hazards, such as workstation computers running unauthorized software. This version of FactoryTalk AssetCentre software also includes a mobile-friendly dashboard, providing access to information about the status of last search results with drill-down capabilities to view failures and successes. The dashboard displays an audit log of changes and asset performance, helping users remotely access the system and address potential issues from device of their choice.
