Automation System

EcoStruxure Process Expert is built on an Ethernet backbone for an open and flexible architecture. Ethernet topology offers transparent access to the information you need, from the plant floor to the enterprise level. The system can interface with automation devices such as drives, motors starters as well as power management devices such as breakers and power meters. This enables EcoStruxure Process Expert to get accurate, real-time process data at any time. It helps measure, analyze and improve energy consumption and the overall operational profitability of your process, so you can produce more efficiently with less waste, effort, and cost.
