RemoteView is a PC application compatible with Windows XP, 2000 or NT. Once up and running, a RemoteView station allows users to monitor the application of an NDC 8000 measurement system from a remote desk. As a result of RemoteView, management personnel can easily get a real time view on plant quality and production performance. Plant maintenance personnel can remotely troubleshoot system problems and often take corrective action without going to the machine or system. NDC technical support can also perform remote troubleshooting from NDC headquarters. From the RemoteView computer, an individual can not only view 8000 system screens but also can perform system image backup functions.
