Digital Plant Asset Management helps plant operators improve their processes for operation, maintenance, and diagnostics. The data required for this is provided by the Docker-based software smartLink SW-HT from Softing Industrial.
smartLink SW-HT allows easy and fast access to HART devices connected to remote I/Os from Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Schneider Electric, and R. Stahl. Configuration and diagnostic data are accessed via Emerson's AMS Device Manager or other HART IP-enabled Plant Asset Management applications.
smartLink SW-HT provides an Ethernet connection for tunneling the HART commands to the remote IOs. On the field side, smartLink SW-HT is low-risk and easy to integrate. This is even possible during operation and does not require a plant shutdown. The application thus makes it easy for users to implement open, standards-based, and scalable system architectures and integrate connectivity into edge solutions managed by IT.
Softing will present smartLink SW-HT and other connectivity products at HMI 2023 from April 17 to 21 in hall 015, booth F48.
