Rockwell Automation’s PlantPAx process automation system allows manufacturers to more easily deploy, operate and maintain operations. The company says that some of this solutions’ key highlights include:
- Virtualization Adoption: The industry’s first production-grade virtual image templates let users quickly deploy preinstalled system servers, operator workstations and engineering workstations on their virtualization infrastructure.
- System Architectures: The system is the most scalable DCS available, based on total cost of ownership; new sizing tools add to this flexibility by helping system engineers fine-tune the loading and performance of their system.
- Operator Effectiveness: The system has delivered several new features to improve operator effectiveness, including a new sequencer tool, an improved state model for alarm systems, simpler faceplates for common control objects, and new trending tools for improved navigation.
