The PlantPAx™ Process Automation System has all the core capabilities expected in a world-class distributed control system (DCS). The system is built on a standards-based architecture by using Integrated Architecture™ components that enable multi-disciplined control of the Logix5000 family of controllers and premier integration with the Rockwell Automation® intelligent motor control portfolio.
Scalable Solutions For Your Needs
Their scalable platform provides you with the flexibility to implement a system appropriate for a large variety of applications. Within the PlantPAx system, there is a very specific system architecture with defined system elements, each with a specific responsibility and detailed specifications.
Because of the varying demands of the market, Rockwell Automation delivers a scalable batch and sequence management solution for its PlantPAx Process Automation System called the PlantPAx Logix Batch & Sequence Manager. It provides a flexible, controller-based batch and sequencing solution independent of application servers and software.
No Code Changes to the System
Recipes can be configured directly in the controller through a standard user interface without requiring code changes to the system. PlantPAx Logix Batch & Sequence Manager is ideal for applications that require batch management capabilities, but are not complex enough to warrant a server-based batch software package. This solution allows you to start small but, if needed, you can easily scale into a comprehensive software solution without costly re-engineering and testing.
PlantPAx Logix Batch & Sequence Manager leverages the same configuration, networking and visualization environment associated with larger-scale Rockwell Automation systems. It enables local, single unit supervision and control, while supporting multiple, independent units in a single controller. This helps provide users with cost-effective options when integrating into a plant-wide control system.
