RACO Launches Cloud-based SaaS Solution for OPC Connectivity
New compatibility allows users to customize visual data representation
Emeryville, Calif. (October 13, 2014) — RACO Manufacturing and Engineering Co., a leading provider of field-proven remote monitoring, reporting and alarm notification systems, has introduced AlarmAgent.info®, a new SaaS application for the AlarmAgent.com® wireless, web-based RTU. The addition of AlarmAgent.info makes the system OPC-compatible, enhancing its existing real-time reporting features by sharing data communication with HMI / SCADA software and third-party customized applications.
This new SaaS application brings a key user benefit with customizable data visualization. AlarmAgent.info enables users to customize how to visually represent their real-time data and create user-friendly data depictions for monitoring and tracking. Depending on the HMI / SCADA software used, the customer can visualize data on multiple platforms, including PC monitors, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
AlarmAgent.info sends real-time, remotely collected data directly to the user’s HMI / SCADA software. Holistic data is quickly sent so immediate issues can be addressed, while maintenance and custom alert notifications help prevent future issues. All data is available on the customer’s AlarmAgent.info dashboard via the channel status, configuration data and performance data categories.
“AlarmAgent.info allows our customers to receive — and visualize — real-time data more easily than ever before, which saves them time and money,” said James Brown, vice president of sales and marketing for RACO. “This latest innovation continues RACO’s legendary reputation for reliability, providing our customers total peace of mind.”
AlarmAgent.com, as with all RACO products, keeps critical data secure. Now, AlarmAgent.info offers even tighter security control than web browser applications that use built-in .NET Framework security.
