This company now offers Virtual Lockout-Tagout (vLOTO) capabilities with its Connect Power User Plans. vLOTO allows companies to control remote access to equipment, ensuring the safety and security of workers and equipment during critical operations. If a worker needs to connect remotely to conduct maintenance, vLOTO can help protect the module from inadvertent harm by someone else on the same user team. This capability also offers more control over equipment to end users, who can grant access for a specific duration to machine builders or system integrators. Up to three authorized personnel can grant access, but if one person declines, the approval will be overridden. An audit trail lets an IT department know who granted permission. This technology is a first for remote connectivity applications, according to the company. — ProSoft Technology, Inc., Bakersfield, Calif.
