The PlantPAx® system helps you make better, faster decisions. This system enables you to respond more quickly to the demands of the customer and fast-changing specifications. Rethink what a modern distributed control system (DCS) can do for you.

Consider Forward-thinking Possibilities

The Modern DCS

Rethink what to expect from a DCS. A traditional DCS is built for process control. All of your automation operations can be integrated into a Connected Enterprise with the PlantPAx system being a key component. This technology will help to drive productivity, increase efficiencies and reduce costs in your organization.

A Single, Plant-wide Control System

Plant-wide Control and Optimization

The PlantPAx system uses a common automation platform for seamless integration between critical areas of your plant. This modern DCS connects process, discrete, power, information, and safety control into one plant-wide infrastructure.
