Visualization Features ThinManager 13

Event Based Content Delivery

Events are created from external sources and are triggered in ThinManager from variable properties configured in TermMon. Once a trigger is received from another application, ThinManager can execute a variety of actions including:

Add Display Client - New content on a terminal

Permissions - Add or remove user permissions

Pass through event - Actions triggered outside ThinManager

Switch or tile display clients - Change visualization

Preconfigured virtual screen layouts

We can now increase the productivity and reactivity of users such as operators or maintenance staff when problems arise on the plant floor by configuring actions to occur within ThinManager to respond to those problems

For example, IF a safety perimeter is breached around let's say a palletizer machine, THEN we can bring up a camera feed of that machine to the operator workstation or in the control room to see what happened at that particular place on the plant floor

We can even pass through an event from an outside application such as your MES software to trigger another pre-configured action outside ThinManager in a separate application
