Woodward has the longest legacy of any controls supplier in the industrial
equipment market and we continuously invest in bringing innovative solutions to
real market needs. Our latest innovation is RAP—Remote Access Program—for
engine and turbine OEMs who need on-demand monitoring, maintenance, and
troubleshooting of their systems globally.

OVERVIEW
RAP uses a combination of secure hardware and software,
plus a secure management system to safely and simply bring
remote accessibility, monitoring, and servicing to Woodward
systems. RAP’s simple setup, ease of use and secure technology
make it ideal for the petrochemical, oil and gas, and power
generation industries that often need remote access to plants and
turbomachinery around the world. This program allows remote
communications with any Woodward device that has Ethernet or

ultimate security program. With RAP, Woodward control and device
users can confidently continue their usage of our standard service
tool suite (RemoteView, AppManager, Control Assistant, ToolKit,
etc.) for remote monitoring and servicing of Woodward products.
