Rotork Control Networks
Product Announcement from Rotork plc
Integration of the plant controls by use of network connectivity has been a hallmark of Rotork actuator products for many years. The use of proprietary and open systems makes the commissioning of the plant and the subsequent control and monitoring a simple and reliable task.
All Rotork actuators are compatible with a wide range of communication and process controls systems by including the appropriate option card. The actuator reports status feedback, via the field highway, to the overall plant control system (DCS or PLC) and valve control commands are actioned.
Rotork's own Pakscan system compliments the open systems from Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus, Modbus and DeviceNet. Innovative technology together with expert bus system knowledge ensures that Rotork can always provide the ideal solution for the control system.
