Building Materials Company Integrates Disparate PLCs and Automation Systems with PAC Machine Edition

 Industrial companies that grow by acquisition and expansion of sites often face a complex network of unintegrated automation systems based on different, incompatible PLCs. The cost and complexity to unify these disparate systems can be considerable, partly due to the need for multiple programming tools. A leading U.S. supplier of building materials faced this challenge and determined to standardize on a single PLC, preferably without excessive costs. They settled on Emerson, not only due to the ruggedness and innovative capabilities of the hardware, but also due very much to the unique Emerson programming environment, PAC Machine Edition (or PME).

How this fast-growing company was able to significantly reduce its total cost of ownership and perform 15 migration projects a year is told in this Proven Result. Don’t miss it.
