How can field instruments and components be easily integrated into automation systems? The answer to this question is becoming increasingly important as digitalisation of industrial production progresses. The Endress+Hauser Open Integration partner program unites 13 manufacturers that want to ensure the streamlined interaction of their complementing products. Recently flow control specialist Rotork joined the partner network.
“Having Rotork join our partner program provides us with additional expertise in actuators, instrumentation and the larger flow control market,” said Jörg Reinkensmeier, Marketing Manager at Endress+Hauser. “We will exploit this potential together with all of our Open Integration partners giving our customers freedom of choice.”
The Open Integration cooperation partners test and document the integration of their offerings and how digitalisation may be fully utilised within typical process automation applications. Users benefit in two ways by being able to combine the best of breed products for their plant operation as well as fast and smooth commissioning. Automation technology suppliers value the advantages of the Open Integration program as well, as they can ensure fine tuning of the combined offering well in advance of installing and commissioning at customer’s sites.
