Rockwell Automation enhances capabilities
Many companies use different control and information systems for each type of production discipline which means difficult and expensive system integration, but even more importantly, decisions are made based on the limitations and boundaries of these disparate systems, diminishing the ability to make timely, fully informed decisions.
Rockwell Automation has enhanced its expertise in the areas of drives, high-speed motion, safety, and discrete automation with the acquisitions of:
- ICSTriplex - safety capability and critical control
- ProsCon - process technology
- Pavilion - advanced process control
The company has also secured a key partnership with Endress+Hauser (instrumentation).
Pavilion̵7;s model-predictive control technology has been proven to increase efficiency and profits significantly. The partnership with Endress+Hauser provides tools to simplify integration and improve plant performance, while both ProsCon and ICSTriplex provide the engineering capability to deliver complete turnkey installations.
