We are pleased to announce the lauch of an app & remote desktop connection which allows you to connect to and control your Perry PLC Control Panel from any PC or IOS/Android mobile device.*
The launch of this app allows users more flexibility when operating their driers, you can now operate the panel or check the status of your perry equipment from wherever you happen to be.
Advances in technology are allowing farmers to become more mobile and less reliant on traditional, labour intensive farming methods. At Perry of Oakley Ltd, we pride ourselves in being up to date with technological advances, along with wanting to provide our customers with a quality product we also want them to embrace the new technology available to make their lives easiLa We now have a mobile phone application that allows you to control or view your Perry Drier or Plant Control Panel.
There is a FREE app available on both iTunes and within the Google Play Store that allows for a quick and easy connection to your Perry Control Panel. Once connected you can control your Perry PLC Drier or Plant Panel from your phone allowing you to control your drier or plant from anywhere!
There are 2 settings within the app, the first allows full control which allows you to operate the panel from your phone and the second is view only which allows you to view all the menus within the panel and the panel itself, so you can check that everything is running as expected.
The screen will show exactly what is on your panel, so there is no need to learn any new routes or procedures, you use it in exactly the same way as the panel itself. On a phone screen the buttons can become a little small, but there full zoom compatibility allowing you to zoom in to the screen and scroll around, making the app easier to read.
Remote Desktop Operation
The remote operation application installed on your PC allows full access to your drier or plant control panel, you can check on the running of it or change the settings. If you can do it on the control panel, you can do it within this application. You wont need to re-learn any complicated software or procedures as the screen you see is the Perry Control Panel that you are already familiar with.
You can install the application on more than one PC if required and you can link the application to multiple panels. This is particularly useful for people who have more than one drier or plant, it means that no matter how many panels you own, you can control them or just check the running of your equipment from your desk!
This is a secure connection that requires a unique IP address & a password, the passwords can be changed quickly and easily should you wish.
It is the same software that our engineers use to offer their remote support, meaning we are very familiar with it & can offer training and support when needed.
Because your panel is connected to the internet, you will also have access to the following within your drier panel:
- Status reports in email and text form to be sent to selected numbers and e mail addresses.
- Can download all alarm history and recorded drier conditions.
- Remote connection by Perry engineers to diagnose any faults.
- Moisture contents can be entered during the day.
- Can export all recorded drier conditions and moisture contents to excel and automatically create daily record sheets.
- Fuel use calculator included for oil burning driers.
