NHP take great pleasure in inviting you to join us at an informative webinar that will take you through the key features and benefits of Rockwell Automation's process control solution, PlantPAx.

Traditionally there have been two choices when selecting a process control system – a Distributed Control System (DCS) or a PLC/SCADA approach. PlantPAx eliminates the need to choose between using a DCS or a PLC/SCADA approach. It has been designed to take the best features from both and integrate them into a single scalable solution. As part of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture it allows a single architecture to be used for a wide range of applications including process, batch, drives, motion and safety. PlantPAx systems can be engineered by end users, Systems Integrators and OEMs.

At its core, PlantPAx is a single database that also has a single security model, simplifying the management of user’s profiles. In addition, any data created in the system is instantly accessible to all the software modules that need it. PlantPAx is also scalable for small OEM packages with less than 100 I/O points to a large scale distributed system with multiple controllers, hundreds of control loops and more than 10,000 I/O. It offers high availability at all levels of the system from redundant I/O and networks through to controllers and supervisory systems.
