800xA Remote Clients
800xA Remote Access solution
customer is using Citrix server to connect to one of ABB clinet and access the operator workplace.
Customer is planning to upgrade to 800xA 6.0 What is the best solution for this , keeping same features?
How the Operator workplace license is counted ?
How many operaotr workplace on Machine can handle ?
800xA Smart client is that a solution ?
Smart Client is for Display Only. So if your customer just wants to see Operator Displays and Trends then Smart Client is a solution - BUT - you need an IM to see Alarms and Events on Smart Client ( which kind of defeats the purpose of having a cheap display only solution )
If your client wants fully functional remote operator workplaces to control the plant, then buy a remote workplace license and use Microsoft RDP to connect to the remote workplace server. You need one Remote Workplace license for each remote workplace.
Latest version of smart client having possibility of viewing 800xA process graphics (PG2) with real-time data in a read-only mode without any additional engineering work.
With the context menu comes navigation and also the possibility to view 800xA trends.
However need to undestand that smart client is not for operation.
