Monitoring & managing your industrial network and devices is essential to ensuring smooth operation and maximizing availability. However, administrators are often on the move, making it difficult for them to stay informed of any changes in the status of devices and networks, let alone troubleshoot situations that could impact network availability. Now, with MXview ToGo, administrators can continuously monitor their network anytime, from anywhere.
“Mobile users now outnumber desktop users, and we are seeing this trend expand into the industrial automation workplace,” shared Richard Wood, product manager at Moxa Americas Inc. “Since engineers joining the workforce today are accustomed to using mobile devices in their private life, it is only natural that they would want to use these same devices to simplify their work life with our MXview ToGo mobile app.”
Using MXview ToGo, event notifications are pushed directly to an administrator’s mobile phone, allowing them to instantly check the status of the network, including whether the network is operating normally, warnings have been issued, or a critical situation requires immediate attention. In addition, field technicians doing a regular inspection or troubleshooting can use MXview ToGo to scan a QR code to view specific device information without connecting to a laptop computer. Also, by deploying the built-in device locator feature, users can trigger a particular device’s LED to blink so they can quickly locate it out of hundreds of similar devices.
CLIENT/SERVER NETWORK SOLUTION
The new MXview ToGo app and MXview software (v2.6 and later) work seamlessly together as a client/server network management solution, providing a visual representation of network topology, while empowering users to perform configuration, traffic load monitoring, and historical event playback.
