Emerson adds hybrid and discrete solutions to its portfolio

01 April 2019

The addition of a new portfolio of PLCs – part of Emerson’s acquisition of General Electric Co.’s Intelligent Platforms group – has allowed the company to offer more end-to-end automation solutions for its traditional process control customers.

The addition is also said to expand its production optimisation and control capabilities in the hybrid and discrete markets, and in industries where PLCs are sometimes preferred or required for faster response and machine control.
The new portfolio of cloud-connected controllers, industrial PCs, and devices for smart plants complements Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem. The automation and control portfolio will enable more operational performance and efficiency for customers in life sciences, metals and mining, power and water, food and beverage, and packaging, which often blend process and discrete machine control to manufacture and deliver finished products.
“We have reinvested heavily in the ability of our control systems to bring new capabilities to help organisations optimise their capital project and operations performance,” said Jim Nyquist, group president of Emerson’s Systems and Solutions business. “With this new portfolio, we are expanding our automation expertise and bringing new digital solutions to market that will integrate plants seamlessly and accelerate improvements in operational performance, safety and reliability.”
Future interfacing with Emerson’s DeltaV and Ovation process control systems is also planned to help eliminate many of the islands of automation within plants that create data silos and which limits the ability to cost-effectively execute digital transformation initiatives and IIoT-driven capital improvements.
The new portfolio includes offerings for machine control and discrete applications with products such as PACSystems, PACMotion, VersaMax IO, and QuickPanel.
