Latest PlantPAx release reduces time-to-market and improves user experience

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

The latest release of Rockwell Automation’s PlantPAx modern distributed control system (DCS) is claimed to help engineers across multiple industries modernise their plants and reduce time-to-market. New system capabilities include a more productive design environment to enhance automation productivity; easier adoption of enabling technologies to improve user experience; and enhanced control capabilities to help meet operational goals.

The PlantPAx system also includes a mobile component that enables users to create displays and interact with process data across any HTML5-compliant mobile platform. The software is responsive to the user’s specific device, allowing operators and plant managers to access and view performance metrics and data analytics in their preferred format.

The updated system leverages the recently introduced batch application toolkit to help reduce the risk, time and cost of implementing batch control systems. Containing documentation, application examples and sample code, the toolkit is said to give engineers a starting point to build and maintain a consistent batch control system. It also provides flexibility to customise system elements for increased functionality.
