PlantPAx: The Modern Distributed Control System

A traditional distributed control system (DCS) is built for only one purpose — process control.

But in today’s competitive economy, you need to consider forward-thinking possibilities and utilize technology and innovation to your advantage. It’s time to rethink what to expect from a DCS. In order to drive productivity, increase efficiencies and reduce costs you need to integrate all of your automation operations to achieve The Connected Enterprise. And the only way to do that is through the technology offered by a modern DCS — the PlantPAx system.

The PlantPAx distributed control system offers:

  • Plant-wide control and optimization for better business decisions
  • Scalable and modular system architectures to meet your exact needs
  • Open, secure and information-enabled networking capabilities
  • Flexible delivery and support options allowing you to choose

The PlantPAx modern DCS helps reduce your total cost of ownership by reducing the tasks and costs associated with engineering, inventory, maintenance, expansions and operations.
