The longer your machines are disconnected, the more critical data loss can occur. Controls Advisor provides a proactive approach to quickly identify and respond to connectivity issues. Through a single application, it allows controls engineers to actively monitor the status of their machines through OPC servers, providing instant notification when connectivity is lost. Tools like trending, alarms, and diagnostics give you the full picture so you can easily and remotely troubleshoot the issue to get back up and running quickly. With Controls Advisor, you’ll know about connectivity issues before the operations team.
