Stratus Technologies, a longtime partner of ThinManager, has developed and released a new server, the Stratus ztC Edge. Stratus supported the ThinManager platform when it was produced by ACP and now as part of Rockwell Automation line of products. We are pleased to share this release information and welcome an amazing new piece of technology to the industrial ecosphere.
System Integrators work hard. Projects usually take longer than expected as the scope stretches to meet the customer’s expectations. Every project has unique challenges. Sometimes you put in long days and weekend work to make sure everything gets done.
Because of these things and much more, successful SIs learn how to work very efficiently. When a tool or system can be utilized to make projects more streamlined, SIs will seek to redeploy that tool or system on other projects to help overcome the obstacles mentioned above.

: Touchscreen Technology Bringing the World to Our Fingertips
They can bring you a world of information and services at the touch of your finger. Touchscreens on electronic devices allow almost anyone to control and operate digital gadgets with a mere tap. Let’s take a look at how touchscreens work and the ways they are changing our present and our future.
How Touchscreens Work
There are two basic types of touchscreens: resistive and capacitive. (1)
Resistive touchscreens are the most common type of touchscreens. They’re typically found at ATMs and kiosks that distribute movies on DVR, etc.
In today’s modern production environment visualization is not only important, it is essential.
Visualization is one of the cornerstones of ThinManager and building your ultimate control room to see everything in your production environment is simply put… “A Piece of Cake”!
Start by obtaining a capable thin client, one that can support multiple monitors. We like a configuration for at least 4 large monitors. Need suggestions, look at the ThinManager Knowledge Base of ThinManager ready hardware. Install and layout your monitors.
Using ThinManager you can now assign your control room thin client with all the applications, HMIs, IP Camera Feeds and Desktops that you will need to operate in complete control with optimal visualization of what is happening in your production environment.
