Rockwell Automation's FactoryTalk VantagePoint 4.0 software includes enhanced connectors, configuration and reporting tools
Rockwell Automation's FactoryTalk VantagePoint 4.0 software includes enhanced connectors, configuration and reporting tools to help develop reports, visualization and analytics for manufacturing operations and enhance performance for manufacturing intelligence applications. The latest version is designed to simplify connectivity to additional Rockwell Automation products and provide native integration to Microsoft SharePoint 2010.
FactoryTalk VantagePoint software connects to disparate data sources – real time, historical, relational and transactional – to create a single resource that can access, aggregate and correlate information into a common, unified model. FactoryTalk VantagePoint Web-based dashboards and reports monitor key performance indicators.
FactoryTalk VantagePoint 4.0 provides enhanced connectors and preconfigured reporting content for Logix programmable automation controllers, FactoryTalk Historian, FactoryTalk Metrics and FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix. This release also enables production intelligence for PlantPAx process automation system customers by providing prebuilt reports and a visual model of the process library. FactoryTalk VantagePoint also includes direct connectivity to third-party historians and control systems.
Users can create reports using common tools – such as Microsoft Excel – and view data through the FactoryTalk VantagePoint portal or Microsoft SharePoint.
