PlantPAx DCS Roadmap

PlantPAx DCS Roadmap Supports Smarter, More Secure and Productive Process Operations Digital transformation in process operations requires seamless and secure connectivity between the device and the enterprise. The PlantPAx distributed control system (DCS) from Rockwell Automation has long helped make this connectivity possible through its alignment with plant-wide automation technology and use of open communication standards. Now, Rockwell Automation is revealing new enhancements coming to the platform to help process operations capture more value across the entire plant and enterprise. “During 2018, new innovations to the PlantPAx DCS will help users create smarter, more secure, robust and productive operations,” said Christo Buys, Business Manager - Control Systems, Sub- Saharan Africa, Rockwell Automation. “The next release of our PlantPAx DCS will again leverage valuable input from process users and align with preferred industry standards to deliver increased value to the process industries. These innovations help companies leverage their DCS to more easily capture benefits from plant-wide integration in the Connected Enterprise.” sustainable. Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wis., Rockwell Automation employs approximately 22,000 people, serving customers in more than 80 countries.

This includes support for Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), an industry standard for redundant Ethernet, enabling more secure controller and I/O communications. The next release will also feature updated human machine interface (HMI) and trending tools to help increase productivity, and improve effectiveness of operations and maintenance functions. This includes an enhanced Library of Process Objects to better align with industry display design standards. The expanded library also includes intuitive integration with electrical protection devices, leveraging both EtherNet/IP and IEC-61850 communication standards. This further extends plantwide control capabilities and connects electrical management and control, reducing infrastructure duplication resulting in easier implementation and lower total cost of ownership. Process users, partners and OEMs will learn more about upcoming capabilities in detail at the 2017 Process Solutions User Group (PSUG) taking place Nov. 13 and 14 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston prior to the start of the Automation Fair event from Rockwell Automation. About Rockwell Automation Rockwell Automation Inc.
