L14- Improve Design & Installation Flexibility through PlantPAxTM Field Device Networks & System Integration

Carl Schumaker - Commercial Engineering

  • Process Networks & Asset Management
  • Challenge with Automation Projects
  • The Integration Puzzle Solved
  • Integration Office Activities
  • Lab Overview
The Challenge with Automation Projects:
  • Many devices…
  • Many suppliers…
  • Multiple networks…

..what if everything was compatible and tested as one plant automation system.. PlantPAx

the integration puzzle solved
The Integration Puzzle Solved

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

  • Partnerships
    • Strategic: Endress+Hauser
    • Encompass: 100+ Companies
  • Open Standards for Networks & Integration Technologies

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

Customer Benefits:

Extending the value of the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx Process Automation System to include Partner products
