VisuNet RM Shell 4.0

Pepperl+Fuchs takes a giant leap forward by introducing next generation firmware RM Shell 4.0

With the new software RM Shell 4.0, Pepperl+Fuchs has enhanced its thin client based VisuNet Remote Monitors. Access and control of process control systems in explosion hazardous areas is greatly simplified by using standard Ethernet networking principles between the safe and explosion hazardous area. Thin client solutions open up a variety of new opportunities and introduce greater flexibility to the life sciences as well as the chemical and petrochemical industry.

Since RM Shell 4.0 supports common remote protocols like Microsoft RDP 8.0 and VNC, VisuNet Remote Monitors are adaptable with both modern virtualized and conventional workstation-based process control systems. Safety standards such as an integrated firewall and password-protected user roles ensure a safe and reliable connection.

Maximum level of user-friendliness

High usability was a crucial factor when further developing the software, so the user interface is clearly arranged. The standardized design of the user interface for all remote protocols ensures a consistent „look-and-feel“. Additionally, a touch screen function eases handling.

Take a video tour through our new firmware generation RM Shell 4.0, and see for yourself its simple operation and the outstanding features. 

Basic Layout, Tool Bars, and User Roles

The clearly arranged interface enables the user to intuitively use VisuNet RM Shell 4.0. Different user roles allow different permissions, so each user will see only relevant menus and information. This enhances both clarity and security.

Setting Up a Connection Profile

With RM Shell 4.0, you can easily create harmonized connection profiles according to your specific requirements. Predefined user roles give tailored access to the system and its configurable functions.

Configuring Advanced Connection Profile Settings

RM Shell 4.0 provides you with advanced functions to simplify operation. You can configure the Remote Monitor to automatically establish a connection to the process control system after system startup. In the event of a host failure, RM Shell 4.0 is able to establish a predefined backup connection independently, ensuring an error-free information display.
