  16. 16. InduSoft.com info@InduSoft.com InduSoft Web Studio (Server) SMA (Studio Mobile Access) Studio Mobile Access™ (SMA) allows browsers on any device, to display alarms and process variables. SMA allows any web enabled mobile device, not only those running Microsoft operating systems, but also BlackBerry®, iPhone™ Motorola® RAZR phones, or other devices with built-in browsers to display necessary information. You can even monitor the active alarms and acknowledge them from the mobile device. SMA allows operators to be more efficient and keep the process/machine running at its top performance without the need to be at the immediate location. Studio Mobile Access (SMA)
  17. 17. InduSoft.com info@InduSoft.com Run IWS as a Service InduSoft Web Studio can run as a Windows service. This virtually eliminates accidental shutdown of critical applications by operators. Because increased uptime is mandatory in today's facilities, running as a service also allows IWS to start even when no users are logged on to the computer. This is perfect for remote installations or recovery from power failures. Running IWS runtime as a service increases the security of the system, blocking unauthorized users from slipping in and making any changes before launching the graphic interface.
