A Modern Distributed Control System for Integrated Automation
In 2008, just when it seemed like DCSs might be overtaken by PLCs and PACs for good, Rockwell Automation introduced PlantPAx. Still the only industrial automation system that can handle the whole scope of building automation – including robotics, motion control and safety systems, as a Rockwell system integrator, E Tech Group often utilizes this impressive product in our clients’ control systems upgrades.
Widely regarded as one of the best distributed control systems (DCS) on the market, Rockwell is always improving PlantPAx’s design and capabilities. Clients for whom we’ve applied PlantPAx in their control systems integration project report increased productivity, streamlined processes, and peace of mind when it comes to asset security.
Fast Facts on PlantPAx
It’s easy to understand why clients see such significant ROI with Rockwell’s PlantPAx. A comprehensive and adaptable set of programs, PlantPAx may seem like a basic template library, but it’s actually so much more:
- Centralized facility-wide control and optimization
- Flexible implementation and application
- TVU-certified for cybersecurity
- Easy access to facility analytics
- Compatibility with Allen Bradley system integrators
- Supports process consistency
- Plant-wide process data management
- Broadest coverage of SIL levels and fault-tolerance

Perhaps one of the most important facets of PlantPAx is its scalability, which allows our clients to plan for future changes and expansions knowing they won’t need an entire retrofit of their control systems with each step forward.
