The PlantLog Mobile App will operate on any device running iOS or Android. However, different device sizes have advantages and disadvantages based on their intended function.
The most portable option that can be carried in a pocket or clipped to a belt. Ideal for routine data logging tasks such as facility rounds. Though a smaller screen size may make it cumbersome to view large information such as operating and maintenance procedures.
Small Sized Tablet
Good balance between portability and viewable information. Suitable for both routine data logging as well as more in depth tasks such as preventive maintenance.
Large Sized Tablet
The least portable option which can be cumbersome to carry around for long durations. Extra screen size does not provide much benefits over a small sized tablet. Should only be considered if detailed schematics or diagrams need to be viewed in the field.
Consider using multiple device types to serve your various operational needs while also providing redundancy in the event of a hardware failure.
Protecting mobile devices from the rigors of continuous use within harsh environments is paramount to the smooth operation of the PlantLog software.
The proper protective case can convert a standard consumer grade smartphone or tablet into a first class industrial tool.
