Immediate availability of a new CAD viewing and markup solution was announced for Rockwell Automation's latest Allen-Bradley VersaView CE industrial computer line.

GiveMePower Corporation, a provider of computer-aided design (CAD) and graphics development software for Windows mobile, wireless and desktop computing, and Rockwell Automation Inc., a provider of industrial, power and information solutions, announced immediate availability of a new CAD viewing and markup solution for Rockwell Automation's latest Allen-Bradley VersaView CE industrial computer line.

Available as a productivity-enhancing extension for Rockwell Automation's new Windows CE .NET-based VersaView CE industrial computers, GiveMePower's PowerCAD CE Viewer improves operator efficiency by allowing plant-floor viewing and markup of AutoCAD-compatible designs, schematics and part libraries, including Rockwell Automation's complete library of ABECAD parts. Other viewers included as standard equipment on VersaView CE computers include Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and MPEG file viewing.

With these viewers in place, manufacturers can store and retrieve machine manuals, drawings and training videos on VersaView CE terminals located on the plant floor. This eliminates the need for operators and maintenance workers to have large manuals and drawings on a laptop computer for troubleshooting or repair, and lets training engineers incorporate MPEG training videos on the plant floor to improve overall plant efficiencies.

In addition to accessing files stored locally, VersaView CE users can access information located on a separate server, allowing, for example, production office users to download new manuals and part drawings to multiple VersaView CE units situated throughout a plant.
