Mobile monitoring updates switch status

13 May 2014

Belden’s HiMobile app provides status information for Hirschmann switches to mobile devices from almost anywhere.

The app from the Hirschmann product portfolio runs on smartphones or tablets and improves network availability by allowing users to access status information about switches from almost anywhere. Administrators can respond immediately to error messages even without a PC. To avoid typing errors on the smaller keypads used on these devices, IP addresses can also be entered by scanning a QR code affixed to the switches. A further alternative is to select network devices from lists.

Possible application scenarios include machinery for the food and beverage industry, material handling systems, printing presses, and robotics. It can improve network availability in the oil and gas sector or in power generation from wind power and solar energy just as effectively as in road and rail transport or at airports or ports.

Used with the Industrial HiVision network management software, which acts as the server and the app as the client, it provides access to the server via WLAN, Ethernet or a 3G mobile connection. Status information for network devices is read-only and cannot be updated. To make changes to the network a mobile worker needs to login to the full version of Industrial HiVision. The app runs on browser-enabled mobile devices under the Apple, Android or Windows Phone OS.
