Response time is essential to maintaining production, but maintenance and operations can’t always be at their desks or next to the HMI. Now, the new SIMATIC Notifier app sends automation system alerts direct to your smartwatch or other mobile device. Never again miss a fault notification because you were across the plant in a conference room or across town in a customer meeting. Just glance at your wrist to learn essential details about the type and location of the fault. Acknowledge receipt, note your intention to address the fault, or pass it off to a team member (see figure 1). It’s as easy as a tap on the wrist.
The app can be configured to show three different notification categories: alert, warning, and information (see figure 2). Devices connect over Wi-Fi for secure encrypted communications. The SIMATIC Notifier app is currently available for Android Wear 2-compatible devices. It requires a licensed SIMATIC Notifier server (software download) for operation. Each license covers up to 50 compatible devices.
