SPRINGFIELD, MA - October 2021 - LLumin, Inc., a leading provider of asset management software, announced today that it has released, in partnership with Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the Archive Management of Change (MoC) module for FactoryTalk AssetCentre.

Archive Management of Change augments the existing security in FactoryTalk AssetCenter Archive by adding workflow and digital signature. Customers who wish to add visibility and control around modifications made to Controller code being managed by FactoryTalk AssetCentre now have a simple but powerful tool they can use to track, from cradle-to-grave, the entire modification and change request process.
The offering is ideal for customers in industries like life sciences, food and beverage, and energy who are focused on complying with regulatory requirements as they manage evolving engineering and design requirements within their industrial automation environments.
LLumin's workflow engine was integrated into Rockwell Automation's FactoryTalk AssetCentre platform, adding the ability, within the Archive, to create policies that restrict authority to grant change control permissions, impose quality, and MoC rules upon code modification completion, and require a digital signature. All MoC usage generates audit trail messages
"AssetCentre is already a vital instrument on the plant floor. Now, with the Archive MoC capability, powered by LLumin, it will provide customers with a powerful solution for adding a higher level of quality control to their engineering processes and facilitating regulatory compliance strategies," said Edward Garibian, CEO of LLumin.
"AssetCentre, with Archive MoC, provides customers with the tools needed for process-driven change and configuration management," said Tad Palus, Sr. Global Product Manager at Rockwell Automation. "Extending FactoryTalk AssetCentre's Archive security support to include Digital Signature and Workflow functionality, powered by LLumin, helps industrial automation engineers better control and track modifications to files in the FactoryTalk AssetCentre Archive used on a plant floor. "
"LLumin is used by Asset Management and operations professionals to protect mission-critical assets from unplanned downtime," added Ed Garibian, LLumin CEO. "LLumin's workflow architecture is a perfect complement to Rockwell Automation's FactoryTalk AssetCentre. Our solution prevents unauthorized (accidental as well as malicious) modifications of critical control system application code."
FactoryTalk AssetCentre, with Archive Management of Change, is available from Rockwell Automation and its distributors.

EXAIR Webinar Series: Break the cycle of replacing electric shop vacuums.

Be sure to attend the latest of EXAIR's webinars. Get educated on pneumatic industrial vacuums so you can break the cycle of replacing electric shop vacuums. Industrial environments often present a continual battle to keep them clean and safe. Unavoidable by-products of manufacturing processes include liquid and solids which often present hazards to personnel, products and processes. Solids may be trim, dusts, or chips from a manufacturing line; liquids may be coolant spills, coating overspray, or even burst packages. Cleaning up these materials often falls on the operators of the equipment who need reliable, adaptable, safe and effective tools for cleanup. Supplying them with tools which fail frequently or do not meet the requirements of the safety team is a recipe for disaster. Attend this webinar to gain an understanding of how pneumatic vacuums can reduce the maintenance, increase reliability, and improve flexibility for your facility. Attend live on May 24th at 2 p.m.
