The PlantPAx® system helps you make better, faster decisions. This system enables you to respond more quickly to the demands of the customer and fast-changing specifications. Rethink what a modern distributed control system (DCS) can do for you.
From the control room to the board room, process system users face the persistent challenges of balancing productivity against budget and resource constraints as well as proactively reducing evolving operational risks.
Meet these challenges and experience real productivity gains in all areas of your plant with the PlantPAx distributed control system (DCS). The latest system release provides a simplified approach to control system strategies allowing for a reduced architectural footprint, consistent project design and simplified workflows. PlantPAx 5.0 allows you to drive out impactful bottom line business improvements by providing key operational information when, where, and how you need it.
The latest system release introduces:
PlantPAx 5.0 is coming September 2020.
Rethink what to expect from a DCS. A traditional DCS is built for process control. All of your automation operations can be integrated into a Connected Enterprise with the PlantPAx system being a key component. This technology will help to drive productivity, increase efficiencies and reduce costs in your organization.
The PlantPAx system uses a common automation platform for seamless integration between critical areas of your plant. This modern DCS connects process, discrete, power, information, and safety control into one plant-wide infrastructure.
A wide range of architecture options for increased flexibility are provided with the PlantPAx system. The same platform can be used for single stations or large distributed architectures.
The PlantPAx modern DCS is based on open communication standards leveraging EtherNet/IP as its backbone. As a result, real-time information is readily available throughout the enterprise for better business decisions.
You are able to select the optimal implementation and support team based on your needs with the PlantPAx DCS. We can deliver the system and other world-class solutions or your local process system integrator with whom you have established a working relationship can provide your support.
PlantPAx DCS leverages advancements in our design and configuration platforms. The PlantPAx System Estimator (PSE) allows you to quickly build and validate your architecture based on your requirements. The PSE wizard is part of Integrated Architecture® Builder (IAB).
