VisuNet RM Shell is an innovative thin client firmware pre-installed on every Pepperl+Fuchs VisuNet Remote Monitor (RM) and box thin client. It is engineered by Pepperl+Fuchs to simplify thin client setup and operation of virtualized and conventional workstation-based process control systems. RM Shell replaces the Windows® desktop and reduces the user interface to critical system functions.
Predefined user roles (administrator, engineer, and operator) provide tailored information access to different authorization levels. An app concept allows integration of third-party remote protocols and applications—this enables OEMs to integrate their own apps and adapt VisuNet RMs to their own automation infrastructure.
Usability meets security: Features such as a universal write filter (UWF), USB lockdown, and a built-in Ethernet firewall make VisuNet RMs one of the securest HMI solutions on the market.
VisuNet Control Center takes the usability of VisuNet RMs to the next level by enabling efficient, centralized remote configuration of multiple RMs. This engineering software prevents IT personnel from having to enter hazardous locations for setup and maintenance of systems in the field—everything can be done from the control room.
Next generation of firmware for VisuNet Remote Monitors and box thin clients
Paired with VisuNet Control Center software, RM Shell enables centralized management of VisuNet RMs. RM Shell 5 is based on Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTSC, and it supports all common protocols as well as the installation of third-party applications.
Thin client firmware for VisuNet Remote Monitors and box thin clients
RM Shell 4 is based on Windows® Embedded Standard 7, and it supports remote protocols like Microsoft® RDP 8, RealVNC, Citrix Receiver, and DRDC.

This upgrade kit works with VisuNet Remote Monitors and box thin clients from Pepperl+Fuchs that were originally delivered with the RM Shell 5 firmware based on Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise LTSB 2016 operating system or installed RM Shell 4 firmware.
Software for centralized remote configuration of VisuNet RMs and box thin clients
VisuNet Control Center allows all HMI systems with RM Shell 5 or RM Shell 4 to be managed from a central location. This prevents administrators from having to enter hazardous areas and cleanrooms to set up or maintain an RM or box thin client. Access to the devices is granted from a central location, saving time and costs.
