|Rockwell Automation SequenceManager Solution Offers Increased Functionality, Scalability for Process Applications|
Modern batch solution offers enhanced integration with controller for better responsiveness and flexibility in process control applications
MILWAUKEE, July 21, 2016 — In today’s processing environment, modern batch systems must account for the growing need for flexible, scalable solutions, true distribution of control, and responsive functionality. To address this, Rockwell Automation has introduced its new SequenceManager solution, which enables powerful and flexible sequencing capabilities of the batch process at the controller, offering increased functionality for skids, off-network systems and single-unit controls.
Leveraging a Logix-based controller platform from Rockwell Automation, the SequenceManager solution allows operators to configure, view and obtain critical information about batch sequences stored in the controller, increasing visibility and accessibility to all stages of the production process.
“The SequenceManager solution allows the user to deliver fast and reliable sequence execution while reducing infrastructure costs for standalone units and complete skid-based system functionality,” says Dan UpDyke, product manager, Rockwell Automation. “This scalable solution brings plantwide control capabilities of a modern batch control, for both small and medium-sized operations.”
Key capabilities of the solution include:
The SequenceManager solution is well-suited for industries where batch process control is regulated and/or business critical, such as food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical. Specific applications include single- or multiple-independent unit operations, such as OEM skids, clean-in-place systems, dryers, evaporators, ovens and reactors.
