Simplifying & Leveraging Virtualization

Mon, 11/19/2012 - 7:14am

PlantPAxRockwell Automation has launched virtual image templates for the PlantPAx process automation system, including a system server, operator workstation and engineering workstation. The company says that these preconfigured, drop-in templates, delivered as images on a USB hard drive, help reduce validation costs and initial engineering time. The templates operate in an open virtual-format file, officially supported by VMWare vSphere. The three core elements are:

  • Process Automation System Server (PASS) — provides central name resolution and look-up services across multiple computers for central administration of data throughout the PlantPAx process automation system.
  • Operator Workstation — consists of the software needed for visualizing and controlling the process.
  • Engineering Workstation— includes all the necessary software to fully configure the control and visualization components of the PlantPAx process automation system.
