The WirtschaftsWoche wrote on October 2nd, 2019 "The economy is cooling down - industry in recession". Use this as an opportunity! In a phase in which incoming orders for many companies are stagnating, the time can be used to prepare for the next economic boom. Machines and processes can now be automated in order to produce even more cost-effectively and to be that decisive step ahead of the competition.

With the new version of the Alarm Control Center (ACC) you benefit from the latest innovations in the field of alarm management with which we prepare you specifically for the new economic boom. In this newsletter, we will go into more detail about these innovations that the Alarm Control Center has in store for you.

  • Release ACC 5.2 on October 1st, 2019 with the following innovations:
    • Agent for OPC UA
      • Do you have different control systems in your production? OPC UA standardizes industrial connectivity and ensures interoperability between products from different manufacturers. We have now also implemented this standard in the ACC so that you can connect all systems and plants to the ACC.
    • Channel for OPC DA
      • Would you like to set OPC variables to report a failed escalation back to the controller? This is now possible in ACC V5.2.
    • Channel for Ascom OAP
      • The messages are shown on the telephone display of the called subscriber and can be accepted by pressing a button. End devices of the Ascom Unite Messaging System (UM) that can display text messages such as DECT telephones and the Wifi smartphone “MyCo” are supported.
    • Redesigned iPhone app for ACC V5.2
    • Option conference server SIP
      • Do you want your experts to exchange ideas quickly and find a solution in the clinic and care environment, in building technology or in production? The SIP conference server offers you the option of automatically calling defined persons and connecting them to one another in a conference.
