Publisher-Subscriber Protocol Open standard provides "many to many" deterministic communications, synchronization of distributed applications, global availability of reliable information, automatic discovery and reconfiguration, and optimized traffic load — all without the need for network programming.
Faulty Device ReplacementAutomatic reconfiguration and network addressing of any device interruptions, improving productivity.
Bandwidth Monitoring Clearly determine the communication load that a device is exposed to and then tune it to achieve optimal performance.
Enhanced network monitoring, web services, and diagnostics Using standard Internet protocol (SNMP - Simple Network Management Protocol) and standard Network Management Software, every FactoryCast device allows access to its enhanced Management Information Base (MIB). Monitors the device for network performance, and performs diagnostics on the operation of its services.
