ACP ThinManager

ACPThinManager allows unprecedented control and security in a sustainable and scalable platform regardless of the size of your industrial environment or number of facilities. ThinManager's thin client architecture allows for deployment of less expensive hardware while giving users the applications and tools familiar to them in a format that reduces management and hardware costs while increasing security.

ThinManager display clients can be generated by a session running on a display server (e.g. a Terminal Server, a shadowed thin client, an image from an IP camera, or VMWare® virtual machines). Administrators can allow multiple user sessions to operate at the same time and each can be viewed and/or controlled directly from ThinManager or from any authorized thin client terminal on the network.

ThinManager renders display clients through a number of different types of thin client hardware available from multiple manufacturers and offers the ability to expand the number of sessions, which can be simultaneously viewed from any designated work station. With ThinManager, our customers realize:

1.  Build on a Multi-Session Core

ThinManager offers technology for IT professionals seeking better security and configuration of their thin client networks. Our MultiSession core technology allows multiple sessions running anywhere on the ThinManager network to be viewed through one thin client.

ThinManager can "tile" these screen views based on your settings. You can dictate which tile shows which session. You can set it to run in screensaver mode so that certain "tiles" are constantly updated with different sessions. Multisession allows you to view displays from different applications on the same monitor.

By acting as a centralized management solution, ThinManager will seamlessly integrate with your current PLC’s and HMI while providing a number of features, tools, and methods of access, which make it simple to monitor and adjust user sessions from anywhere.

2.  Quicker installs with less configuration
No hard drive means no software to install on the Thin Clients. Terminal Server environments allow a single install of each application for use by all connected Clients. Configuration Wizards make setup easier than ever before.

3.  Lower cost
Lower cost CPU, no floppy or hard drives, and less memory means Thin Clients are less expensive.

4.  Less maintenance 
Maintenance is reduced to a few servers in a central location. The constant maintenance of distributed PC operating systems is eliminated with Thin Clients.

5.  Improved At-A-Glance Management
Manage your entire network from ThinManager by viewing all ThinManager Servers and all Terminal Servers in one tree. See which Clients are online and follow graphically the network path from the Clients back to all the servers. Configure and maintain each Client individually in ThinManager, or put the clients into groups, and manage many Clients at once.

6.  Automatic Failover
In the event of a Terminal Server failure, the client will fail over to a back up server and continue working. Imagine the peace of mind this provides. ThinManager allows every Client to be assigned to several Terminal Servers. If the current Terminal Server fails, the Client will switch to another designated Terminal Server, allowing the unit to continue functioning in the event of a server failure.

7.  Instant Fail-over
The Instant Failover Module allows Clients to run sessions on two Terminal Servers simultaneously. If the primary Terminal Server fails, the Client will instantly switch to the waiting session.

8.  Eliminate the 2 a.m. phone call.
Equipment failure is a crisis demanding quick attention. ACP ThinManager allows any ThinManager Ready Thin Client to be replaced by anyone in minutes instead of the hours required for standard Windows PC replacement. We turn down time into your time.
