Process Control Systems: ProSoft Technology provides migration solutions designed to minimize system downtime with features including monitor mode, allowing users to test and debug the new PlantPAx configuration while the legacy DCS is still on. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.ProSoft Technology offers a suite of migration modules that allow the PlantPAx system to interface and control the legacy DCS I/O system. ProSoft's migration modules are designed to minimize system downtime by offering a phased migration solution. We have interfaces for Moore APACS, Honeywell IPC620 and Fisher Provox I/O systems. The products feature a monitor mode which allows users to test and debug the new PlantPAx configuration while the legacy DCS is still on line. These products also come with tools that reduce the legacy I/O configuration effort. ProSoft Technology also has a full suite of wireless solutions designed to reduce project costs and improve reliability of PLC, PAC, DCS, HMI, video and distributed I/O networks. The fast roaming feature on ProSoft's wireless solutions allow seamless networking. These modules also allow for traveling long distances with multiple access points without dropping Ethernet connections and maintaining crucial controller lengths.
