The primary user advantages include the web based user interface that makes displays accessible from any device with a web browser anywhere in the process, said Perten.
It includes features for download of data and support for other integration options, including legacy OPC DA, fieldbus integration, SQL connectivity and analogue I/O.
Process Plus is a cyber physical system component, and can run independent of physical installation location.
It can be installed on a stand-alone PC or laptop or in a virtual machine in a customer server.
