Controller-based batch and sequence manager
The PlantPAx Logix Batch and Sequence Manager from Rockwell Automation solves a wide range of local, controller-based batch and sequencing needs.
This allows users to configure sequences directly in the controller through the human-machine interface using a standard user interface. For system integrators, this feature eliminates the need for engineering-intensive custom code, while OEMs can design a common process control solution for end customers requiring local sequencing that can easily integrate into a larger plant-wide solution. Designed for stand-alone units like mixers, blenders and reactors that require flexibility in the sequence (procedures) of the process and the formulas (setpoints) for the recipe. It is also well suited for common continuous sequencing applications like process startup/shutdown, grade changes and cleaning skid control.
