High Availability with HoST – Rockwell ThinManager® and Stratus ztC

Your productivity and visualisation must not get over at your workstation. You need secure mobility that is made right into the delivery strategy of your application. Now you can easily deliver all your productivity applications and reports right away to your smartphone, wearables and tablets!High availability

A ThinManager® is a content delivery manager, thin client management software allows control and security in a sustainable and scalable platform regardless of the size of your industrial environment or number of facilities.

ThinManager® thin client software enables secure delivery of the right content, to the right person in the right place. You can now easily expand your ability to manage all devices with this powerful content delivery management system. It delivers content in basically three ways: first through a device, like an iPad, workstation or a zero client box. Secondly, by location. You will able to integrate with Bluetooth beacons as well as RFID scanners and biometric scanners. And thirdly, by user authorization level. For example, a maintenance engineer committed to seeing plc programming screens can only log on with the passwords and see the main screen, but for operator level, they will not be able to touch anything. No matter what your device is, be it a PC or a mobile device, you can now easily transfer your applications anywhere!  The best part is that this ThinManager also comes together with 2FA: 2-factor authentication, so you can use the RFID Scanners, the biometric scanner, as well as windows login.


IT leaders in every single industry, business, and operations look forward to adapting the updated 4. 0 opportunities in order to get insights, gain excellence in operations, and overall greater efficiency and safety in operations. With the ztC edge technology, all the additional problems that arise from security, bandwidth and latency can easily be averted to enable the devices of IIOT and acquisition of data.

What is the zTc edge? ztC stands for zero-touch computing, meaning that it needs to be autonomous, simple to use, as well as protected. The best part of ztC edge is its highly automated, zero-touch, and highly secure computing platform, which has been specifically designed to work in edge environments.ztC Edge 110i - 2 stacked units connected

Our ztC edge is the 110i model. It is an i7 processor with 6 cores as well as 64 GB of RAM and 2 TB of solid-state drives. Hence, there are no moving parts in the ztC edge, therefore the wear and tear of the industrial server can be significantly reduced prolonging the hardware lifespan. It can be also mounted inside a control panel, closer to your workstation. The features of self-protection and self-monitoring help to reduce server downtime by a drastic margin and ensure that you continuously enjoy the availability of applications that are critical for your business.

If a maintenance engineer wants to modify some stuff on the HMI, he needs to go to the RFID scanner, tap in his card, and a windows login page will show up. Next, he will require to put in the password, and he will automatically go to the HMI screen, ready to be modified. After the job is finished and he wants to go back to another station. All he needs to do is tap up, and he will go back to the original screen.

The ztC edge is not only easy to use, but it is also very easy to switch to a zero client box. For instance, if the cable box damages and you replace it with a new box, all you have to do is connect all the cables and plug it back in. Give it a few seconds to load, and you will be able to look back on the screen. When replacing new hardware, there is no configuration needed.

In case anything fails, just Give us a call and we will replace it with a new unit. All you have to do is disconnect the cables, put back the power supply and you are up and running! There will be no need for any recovery or redundancy process as everything is synchronized automatically.
