you A SECURE FUTURE
SHAPING THE Journey of INDUSTRY 4.0
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is the new reality. It now turns the gear of most modern economy. Is your business ready for the biggest organisation, computing and technological transformation of recent times? Industry 4.0 is defined by modern technologies and advanced hardware. Automation, AI, and Machine Learning will all become part of everyday work. Smart machines will revolutionise the "Factories of the Future".
With the latest Thin Clients from R. STAHL, you can future-proof your operations for Industry 4.0 with an all-in-one solution. A Thin Client is an item of computer hardware or a software program that can only fulfil its task using a server or data center. The user has access to applications and data that are processed and provided on these servers.
The Thin Client is an input and output medium for relevant applications. From a technological point of view, Thin Clients are very easy to integrate in modern distributed control systems. Across industry types they are replacing traditional KVM technologies and PC desktop workstations. No data is stored on the Thin Clients themselves or their hard drives. The benefit for you as a user is significant cost savings for the following reasons:
- Thin Clients are cheaper to purchase because they don't have any unnecessary computing power.
- They are easy to deploy and set-up as they require no specialised software installation.
- Thin Clients are centrally configured and hence save you time in commissioning and maintenance.
- Higher cyber security because the Clients are inherently secure devices.
Our Thin Clients are equipped with the new Remote HMI firmware. We have developed this "industrial grade" software and OS especially for the process industry. It has been designed as a closed system and is based on the Windows 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSC operating system as opposed to a Linux-based system. The firmware is highly secure, easy to use and reliable. With the Windows 10 basis, the OS is also intuitive to use by all levels of operators.
SECURE – R. STAHL Thin Clients are closed tamper-proof systems with tiered rights management for end users and administrators. The clients also support customer-specific safety concepts.
SIMPLE – Thanks to the clearly structured operating interface, Thin Clients with the Remote HMI firmware are intuitive and easy to parameterise.
RELIABLE – Ethernet redundancy, reconnect and fallback, system stability and fail-proof operation for the computing clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
