Nowadays, users buy a piece of technology only to find it so overburdened with features that actually using it in anger becomes a nightmare of screens and button clicks. This is a growing issue in our industry. The problem of overcomplicated and/or underdeveloped manufacturer control systems - and the fact that an operator could well be faced with working with several of these control systems to achieve a single task – is real and has clear economic ramifications.
Rascular has the solution. Using a PC-based, fully user-customisable control system is one answer; more specific PC-based applications, another. These allow engineers to set up workflows that are as simple or complex as they like, to extend existing product life or to create automated time-of-day events that never need worry an engineer or operator again.
Let’s take one, real-world customer application. A broadcaster required a cost-effective system to create customised router control panels that could be deployed across its international operations. In addition, the broadcaster wanted a robust application to control the routers automatically at key times of the day on a repeat basis. For example, a channel in Arabia might take programming from a channel in the Far East from midnight to 5am. Helm Clockwork – a Helm application - allows the broadcaster to achieve this without human intervention. Helm’s easy-to-use panel designer can be used to create purpose-built control panels for the applications.
