Controller change management
The increased use of industrial automation to achieve more efficient operations has created a higher dependency on industrial programmable devices, such as PLC’s. What happens if an unauthorized or even an authorized someone makes a change to a program that results in undesired performance, or corrupts the program due to these changes? If there is no immediate backup, the result is costly.
The PLC Gatekeeper is in-line preventive tool, that supports a practical approach to manage controllers in operation from FAT, during installation and commissioning to SAT approval and it provides real-time the ability to restore programs and neutralize impact of undesired changes at any time.
The Gatekeeper prevents device program changes and protect controllers against human error, unauthorized access, undesired changes or failure of equipment. It discovers and tracks changes and fully controls change request processes and access including the ability to restore approved versions.
