IMPROVE YOUR INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION QUALITY AND PRECISION

Business as usual is a thing of the past. Today you must navigate a dynamic marketplace that demands innovative strategies and technologies.  Where increased productivity, sustainability and business flexibility are a requirement. To get from point A to point B, you need a partner who understands the challenges you face - and can provide the tools you need to gain a competitive advantage.

You need integrated information to help drive efficiency and productivity in your plant so you know in real-time what is happening in your production processes. Today, many production processes are fragmented and include outdated machinery, legacy information systems and numerous disparate automation solutions.

An integrated system helps connect your business by replacing dissimilar silos of technology with an integrated, information-enabled plant and supply network.

WE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY

Industrial Automation Control Systems

As one of the first distributors in the United States to support and sell the original Allen-Bradley programmable logic controller (PLC), we have a history you can rely on to get you where you need to be in a globalized economy. We've grown with the technology that now embodies in the scalable, multi-disciplined and information-enabled programmable automation controllers (PAC). We offer multiple controller types and sizes to fit your specific needs. We are one of the few distributors that can take Rockwell Automation products and incorporate them into an integrated solution from various manufacturers like Dynics, ProSoft, and Cognex to name a few.

 
WE CAN HELP IDENTIFY THE RIGHT SYSTEM
Industrial Automation Control Systems

LARGE CONTROL SYSTEMS -
fit your most demanding application needs. They offer modular architectures and a range of I/O and network options. These powerful control solutions deliver world-class capabilities for all disciplines, from process control to safety to motion control.

 
SMALL TO MID-RANGE CONTROL SYSTEMS

SMALL TO MID-RANGE CONTROL SYSTEMS -
are the perfect solution for your stand-alone applications. Small controllers offer the features and flexibility you need without the overhead of larger systems. Typical applications include complex machine control, batch processing and building automation.

 
MICRO & NANO CONTROL SYSTEMS

MICRO & NANO CONTROL SYSTEMS -
provide economical solutions to basic control needs for your simple machines ranging from relay replacement to simple control timing and logic. Compact packaging, integrated I/O and communication, and ease of use make these controllers an ideal choice for applications such as conveyor automation, security systems, and building and parking lot lighting.

 

UTILIZE YOUR CONTROL SYSTEM TO DRIVE PLANT-WIDE OPTIMIZATION

Manufacturing convergence integrates your plant floor with your enterprise IT systems to unify your people, processes and technology, turning your resources into assets to achieve higher levels of business performance.

  • MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES - Functionality for a full range of automation applications with common equipment and standards.
  • SCALABLE DIMENSIONS - Offerings that are right-sized by product, architecture and core, multiple discipline functionality.
  • ETHERNET/IP - A single network of IT-friendly Ethernet for information, I/O, motion and safety.
  • REAL-TIME INFORMATION - Live data and open access throughout your power and control systems, enterprise and supply chain.
  • KNOWLEDGE INTEGRATION - Premier integration of device and system to maximize and secure your intellectual property.
 
STREAMLINE YOUR ENGINEERING WITH EASY TO USE TOOLS

Rockwell Automation's Integrated Architecture system minimizes the number of software tools you need for configuration, startup, diagnostic and visualization capabilities. Unlike other systems that require additional customization to provide value-added functionality such as asset management, monitoring and information, the Integrated Architecture system helps you to:

 

SPEED DEVICE CONFIGURATION

  • Configure both the controller and devices simultaneously using one software package, Studio5000 Logix Designer , to help eliminate configuration mismatch errors.
  • Automatically create data types and descriptive device tag names with proper types that are consistent between multiple programs.
  • Configure devices in a single project file that you can download to your controller and use for easy replacement or restoration.
  • Use step-by-step start-up wizards to guide you in commissioning your devices and their associated parameters, saving time and improving accuracy.

SPEED CONTROL, STATUS AND DIAGNOSTIC TASKS

  • Pre-configured, pre-programmed, pre-tested faceplates and Add-On Instruction (AOI) sets allow you to quickly and easily program and operate devices.
  • Faceplates and AOI sets automatically create tags to provide code for your controller and graphics for your HMI when you add a device into a project.
  • Ease maintenance with an integrated software package (Studio 5000 Logix Designer with Add-On Profiles) that saves the entire controller/device configuration in a single project file.
 

IMPROVE EASE-OF-USE

Take advantage of reference architecture tested designs, system characterization, accelerator toolkits, migration enablers and building blocks to further streamline engineering efforts.

The future lies in the connected enterprise pulling the pieces of your business together.
