More Information:

PlantPAx is Rockwell Automation's process automation system. It combines the plant-wide control technologies and unmatched scalability of Integrated Architecture with all the core capabilities expected in a world-class DCS.


By implementing a single, plant-wide control system, customers can increase efficiencies and productivity across all layers of their organization. They are able to integrate process control, discrete control, power, information and safety into one plant-wide infrastructure. It eliminates the need for different and disparate control systems, resulting in significant plant-wide optimization improvements and reduced total cost of ownership.


PlantPAx is based on several open communication standards, including FOUNDATION Fieldbus  technology which can be integrated by either a ControlNet or EtherNet/IP communications infrastructure.  The flexible communication infrastructure enables real-time information to be readily available throughout the enterprise for better business decisions.


The Rockwell Automation FOUNDATION Fieldbus solution offers fault tolerance throughout the architecture. Options include FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 interface redundancy and fault tolerant H1 wiring architectures.  Additionally, the connection between the controller and the H1 link can take advantage of Device Level Ring (DLR) technology on EtherNet/IP or redundant media options with ControlNet.
