Comment IIOT Chemical

Industry-first controller for IIoT-enabled operations

By Chemical Engineering |

EmersonLaunched last month, the DeltaV PK controller (photo) makes the advanced automation of the DeltaV distributed control system (DCS) available to fast-growth industries traditionally less reliant on large-scale automation. The next-generation controller provides scalable automation control to all process industries, particularly parts of the life sciences, oil-and-gas, petrochemical and discrete manufacturing industries that have relied on complex, non-integrated programmable logic controllers (PLCs) with limited operational capabilities. The fit-for-purpose DeltaV PK controller is said to be the process industry’s first controller that manufacturers can scale down for skid units or scale up to be natively merged into the DeltaV DCS in a larger plant. — Emerson Automation Solutions, St. Louis, Mo.
