..what if everything was compatible and tested as one plant automation system.. PlantPAx
Rockwell Automation pretests many third-party manufactured EtherNet/IP, HART, Foundation Fieldbus and Profibusfield devices in its system test laboratory for compatibility with the PlantPAx process automation system.
Each field device is connected to the PlantPAx system and subjected to interoperability testing procedures under conditions similar to those found in manufacturing plants.
Putting the pieces together for benefits over the entire lifecycle: quicker project execution and more consistent maintenance
Reducing engineering time, cost
Eliminating project execution integration risk
Making maintenance more consistent
Increasing automation product quality
Combining Rockwell Automation, Endress+Hauser and other partner productsthat are connected by open, standarized process networks, with tools to provide one proven, Integrated, Information Enabled PlantPAx solution
Extending the value of the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx Process Automation System to include Partner products
The Integration Office provides the tools and packages to assure seamless integration needed for our customers process systems.
A single package that provides all the tools and information required to perform project-level device integration activities:
