The launch of My Equipment Digital enables new functionality with digital collection and updating of industrial automation asset data through the use of network-based devices. The digital collection method includes firmware information and a one-time vulnerability assessment.
Customers can self-manage and track their installed base automation assets through their My Equipment subscription, enhancing their ability to reduce operational costs, improve asset utilization and decrease enterprise risk. The self-manage feature can be added to an Installed Base Evaluation™ (IBE® service) and is included in the My Equipment Digital and My Equipment Managed offerings.
With My Equipment, customers can:
–Mitigate network risks if legacy products and/or unmanaged switches are found
–Review their modernization potential to determine risks and productivity improvement opportunities by –identifying which older products may be less expensive to repair than to buy new
–Provide adequate remote support coverage by confirming that the most prevalent technical segments are covered
–Reduce costs through the optimization of asset and spares strategies by comparing storeroom data to the installed base, and the identification of warranty savings
