What's going on inside your industrial control cabinet?

The industrial control cabinet has long been a staple in industrial environments. It provides a neat solution to keeping devices organized, often with protection against harmful conditions found on factory floors like excessive dust or humidity.

How The Red Cross of Upper Austria uses Paessler PRTG for its IT

Stephan Federsel is in charge of the IT at The Red Cross of Upper Austria as well as at the center in Linz. In order to detect issues immediately (and prevent potential downtimes and failures), Stephan and his team must be able to keep a constant eye on the availability and performance of the entire IT infrastructure. PRTG, software developed by the monitoring specialists at Paessler AG in Nuremberg/Germany, lets them do this. David Jungwirth, a member of Stephan’s team, is responsible for the implementation of PRTG at the blood donation center.
