Rockwell Automation releases Factory Talk Optix HMI process visualisation in Australia and New Zealand

The world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, Rockwell Automation has begun rolling out its cloud-enabled human-machine interface (HMI) platform, FactoryTalk® Optix™, throughout Australia and New Zealand.

FactoryTalk Optix enhances the capabilities of the FactoryTalk software suite. This suite is used globally to support advanced industrial applications, such as IoT, creating a robust ecosystem.

“FactoryTalk Optix enables users to design, test, and deploy applications directly from a web browser, allowing them to achieve new levels of collaboration, scalability, and interoperability in optimising automation and IoT systems,” said Anthony Wong regional director, south pacific, for Rockwell Automation.

FactoryTalk Optix is one of the five core solutions in FactoryTalk Design Hub, which helps industrial organisations transform their automation design capabilities with a more simplified, productive way to work. FactoryTalk Remote Access, along with FactoryTalk Optix allows users to access machines, controllers, or HMI from almost anywhere with a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that uses industry standards for cybersecurity. Remote access is an enabler for on-demand remote assistance, installation, programming, updates, troubleshooting, and maintenance of remote systems and applications.

The result is increased design productivity, faster time to market, and systems that cost less to build and maintain.

“I’m calling this release ‘Visualisation for Visionaries’, because FactoryTalk Optix unlocks unprecedented collaboration and innovation through cloud-based engineering workflows. The result is visually stunning, data-driven, scalable solutions with seamless connectivity, which are faster to create and easier to maintain, to better support our customers’ smart manufacturing efforts,” said Adrian Giecco director, software and control, Rockwell Automation Asia Pacific.

FactoryTalk Optix is designed to help improve processes and efficiency. Among its features and benefits are:

  • Design options: Design and test projects in a modern object-oriented programming environment.
  • Reduced design time: Multi-user collaboration; simplified standardisation through libraries of reusable content, custom templates, and style sheets; and responsive graphics, easy wizard-based workflows.
  • Improved development and deployment flexibility: Create an application once and deploy it to any device.
  • Reduced risk: Better manage changes to applications and libraries through cloud-based storage with version control.
  • Driving standardisation with graphics options: Style graphics to support a global audience.
  • Reduces costs: Pay-for-what-you-need runtime licensing model based on application features used and the ability to scale hardware requirements based on application complexity.
  • Extensible options: Achieve openness and interoperability through machine-to-machine and machine-to-cloud communications enabled by OPC UA, MQTT and IoT native connectivity and an open C# interface.
  • Standardised HMI platform regardless of controller selection: Connect with any controller or device with built-in third-party drivers.
