R. Stahl Thin clients with DRDC support
Thin clients that support the DeltaV Remote Desktop connection (DRDC) are suitable for process plants run by Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control system (DCS). Flexible remote access is guaranteed even to virtualized control system installations. Many system operators configure, test and implement such setups with the DeltaV Virtual Studio software. Running on a virtual machine, the DCS featuring real-time diagnostics can be reconfigured to meet project and process requirements. The DRDC generally eliminates any possibility of conflict from simultaneous access to the same control system server instance. Series 500 terminals fitted with Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) block all BIOS access via conventional hotkeys, and their parameterization is password-protected.
