Andrew Abernathy | December 7th, 2016

KNOXVILLE, TN - Cross Company’s Instrumentation Group is excited to announce our appointment as the Process Automation Partner for Phoenix Contact. This agreement covers the full geographic area of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and northern Florida.

Phoenix Contact manufactures products that will help customers collect, protect, and connect their data. Process plants use instruments to measure flow, level, temperature, and pressure and other devices such as valves with positioners. These devices all create data points that need to be sent to a PLC or the DCS systems in plants.

Cross Company will work with Phoenix Contact to help our customers apply this process infrastructure connection technology, including signal isolation and protection, HART and Fieldbus devices, and other networking and communication products. The secure, uninterrupted transmittal of this data is essential to the operation of today’s process facilities.

The Instrumentation Group is a manufacturer’s representative and value added distributor based in the southeastern U.S. They focus on applying technologies that measure, analyze, control, and safely operate process manufacturing facilities by providing specialized process knowledge and customized products delivered on-time to keep these facilities running.

Phoenix Contact is a global market leader and innovator in electrical engineering with 14,500 employees worldwide. Phoenix Contact is also partnered with Cross Company’s Motion Solutions Group for discrete manufacturing and Cross Company’s Integrated Systems Group for systems integration projects.
