Varian has a variety of medical instruments and cancer treatment systems that support today’s leading-edge treatment modalities with Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). These treatment systems are deployed at more than 1,000 hospitals and clinics worldwide. Traditionally, system and equipment problems have required one or more service technicians to diagnose and resolve issues at the hospital site, resulting in higher costs and lost patient treatment time. For a typical treatment device, the loss of one day’s treatment time can result in 35 patients missing their treatments, which is something hospitals and patients cannot afford. Problem resolution can be complicated if incorrect or incomplete information has been provided by the operator, and also in cases where the problem cannot be recreated once the technician is on site. Operators of the Varian Acuity™ imaging system, an integrated simulator and verification tool for testing patient treatment plans, occasionally require expert assistance. Image quality optimization, solving operational problems, and tuning system performance can cost time and money for Varian and their customers.

Kepware LinkMaster
Kepware (PTC)
LinkMaster provides a means of linking data between OPC servers, thus serving as a universal bridge for OPC systems. LinkMaster acts as both an OPC server and DDE server, allowing it to bridge legacy DDE systems and new OPC-enabled applications.LinkMaster is a fast and robust Windows application that requires no programming knowledge. Simply "Drag and Drop" to create your links. Built-in scaling, user-access manager, error tracking, and write optimization capabilities provide total control of your data flow and application access.Link Groups are used to form collections of OPC items that will be moved between OPC servers at a specified rate. Using multiple Link Groups, LinkMaster allows you to control how fast data is transferred from one OPC server to another. By using Link Groups with different update rates, you can tailor your data transfers to fit the needs of the application. While one item may need to be sent at high speed, other items in the application may need slower update rates. Link Groups gives you that control. The benefit is reduced network traffic and increased reliability.LinkMaster provides fully-featured data bridging, drag and drop link creation, error logging, support for creating Custom Remote Machine references, and more.- Built-in Redundancy- Supports COM and DCOM- Runs as a Windows Service- Data Scaling- Link Item Management- User Management- EventViewer

Asset Health Management (AHM)
Asset Health Management (AHM)
Asset Efficiency refers to the process of analyzing the health of an asset. The health of an asset in itself relates to the asset's utility, its need to be replaced, and its need for maintenance. The Use Case is broken down into three key components:-Monitoring: Tracking the actual health and viability of the asset-Diagnostic Analysis: Comparing new, real-time data to relevant data from the past in order to detect any anomalies-Prognostics: Given past data, algorithms are developed to determine the remaining useful life of an asset
