November 3, 2010 – PlantESP Approved for Rockwell Automation Encompass Product Partner Program

November 3, 2010
– Control Station, the leader in PID control loop tuning and process control technologies, announced today that its PlantESP – an innovative PID controller performance monitoring and process optimization solution – has been approved for referencing in the Rockwell Automation Encompass™ Product Partner Program.

PlantESP actively monitors and analyzes plant-wide PID controller performance and provides end-users with actionable recommendations for both corrective action and plant optimization. The solution simplifies the identification and isolation of inefficiencies in regulatory control performance. Corrective actions are automatically generated and facilitate the correction of issues ranging from instrumentation and process to controller tuning. With the ability to analyze thousands of individual PID loops as well as to assess their interactivity, PlantESP is the ideal solution for improving overall process performance and plant profitability.

Control Station participates as an Encompass Product Partner in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork. Through Encompass Product Partners, customers can quickly locate complementary products that best solve their application challenges. These essential product offerings extend and enhance implementations of Rockwell Automation’s solutions.

Control Station is an excellent partner and we look forward to their continued success,” stated Ben Mansfield, PlantPAx Marketing Manager for Rockwell Automation. “Their products will certainly help our process customers to focus their efforts in finding and addressing loop performance challenges, leading to higher quality, reduced costs, and increased reliability of their control applications.

This is an important next step in Control Station’s relationship with Rockwell Automation,” stated Dennis Nash, President of Control Station. “Our LOOP-PRO PID tuning software has been included in the Encompass Program since 2009. As a control loop performance monitoring and optimization technology, PlantESP is the logical next step in enabling ongoing process improvement and efficiency gains.

PlantESP utilizes real-time and historical process data sources currently available from a manufacturer’s existing automation investments. With its focus on the performance of regulatory control systems, PlantESP fully complements other asset monitoring and process optimization solutions from Rockwell Automation, including Pavilion© and VantagePoint.

Live one-on-one demonstrations of PlantESP are available in the Control Station booth during Rockwell Automation’s 2010 Automation Fair® in Orlando, Florida. Control Station is located on the show floor in Booth 438.
