Overview

Before you can optimize production, you need to understand where efficiencies can be gained in your plant. To do this, you need a clear view across entire lines and production processes. FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE) is a supervisory-level HMI software for monitoring and controlling distributed-server/multi-user applications. It provides a comprehensive and accurate picture of operations, meeting the demands of multiple stakeholders including engineering, maintenance, operations, and production Information Technology (IT).

FactoryTalk View SE provides robust and reliable functionality in a single software package that scales from a stand-alone HMI system to a distributed visualization solution. As our customers have experienced over the past few years, FactoryTalk View SE enables you to take advantage of mobility, virtualization, and other new technologies, meeting HMI challenges in process, batch and discrete applications and delivering critical visibility when and where you need it.

System Requirements

System Requirements


The computer hardware you choose to install and operate your FactoryTalk® View SE System should be adequately sized for the demands of each component, and meet the following system requirements.

Typically, application servers such as FactoryTalk View SE Server, FactoryTalk Alarms and Events, and RSLinx® Enterprise will need to be sized with faster CPUs and more RAM than operator or engineering workstations. The greater the demand, the more powerful a system you need.

You should also specify a hard drive with enough disk space to provide virtual memory that is at least twice the size of the physical RAM.

Processor Operator Workstation: Intel Core 2 Duo or greater FactoryTalk View SE Client or FactoryTalk View SE Station installed.

Engineering Workstation: Intel Core 2 Duo and greater FactoryTalk View Studio Enterprise, RSLinx Classic, RSLinx Enterprise or Studio5000 installed

Application Server (small system): Intel Core 2 Duo or greater FactoryTalk View SE Server, FactoryTalk View Studio Enterprise, FactoryTalk View Alarms & Events Tag Based Server or RSLinx Enterprise Data Server with FactoryTalk Alarms and Events enabled

Application Server (medium to large system): Quad core Intel Xeon family or greater FactoryTalk View SE Server, FactoryTalk View Studio Enterprise, FactoryTalk View Alarms & Events Tag Based Server or RSLinx Enterprise Data Server with FactoryTalk Alarms and Events enabled.

Memory Operator Workstation: 2 GB or more

Engineering Workstation: 4 GB or more

Application Server (small system): 2 GB or more

Application Server (medium to large system): 4 GB or more
