Rockwell joins forces with ProLeiT
09 March 2009
Rockwell Automation’s recent global agreement with ProLeiT AG targets brewing, dairy and related industries, offering them faster start-up and commissioning of application in an open architecture development environment. The agreement allows ProLeiT to more tightly integrate its Plant iT industry solution with the Rockwell Automation Logix Control Platform.
ProLeiT’s Plant iT solution relies on a programmable logic controller (PLC)-based platform for production control and data acquisition. Under the agreement, ProLeiT will develop its Plant iT industry solution to more closely integrate with Logix-based programmable automation controllers (PACs) from Rockwell Automation. ProLeiT will also utilise FactoryTalk VantagePoint software, formerly known as Incuity, a manufacturing intelligence solution from Rockwell Automation.
‘ProLeiT has established a strong reputation for providing PLC-based, industry-specific solutions in many areas of the brewing, beverage and related industries, and we look forward to helping the company expand on that effort,’ said Steve Eisenbrown, senior vice president, Architecture and Software, Rockwell Automation.
The Logix Control Platform is a fully integrated, multidisciplined control system designed to help users optimise production and improve the flexibility of their manufacturing operations. The platform’s open architecture design allows users to integrate data between multiple systems to help reduce programming time and ease future migration.
‘We look forward to working with Rockwell Automation and are excited about the performance-improving capabilities the Logix Control Platform will bring to our process control solutions,’ said Wolfgang Ebster, CEO, ProLeiT.
