Milwaukee, WI dard technology. 
For the controller-level network , Common Industrial Protocol (CIP)-based networks, such as EtherNet/IP, are used to provide superior enterprise connectivity, while process device communication protocols, such as HART, Foundation Fieldbus, and Profibus PA, deliver device intelligence Endress+Hauser and Rockwell Automation collaborated in the creation and testing of the device integration tools, which include pre-engineered controller code, pre-configured operator faceplates, and integration documentation. All of the tools are available for the most commonly used Endress+Hauser process instrumentation.
Device integration tools reduce the time required to engineer a system, and implementation is supported with step-by-step guidance on connectivity, configuration and commissioning of Endress+Hauser instrumentation in the PlantPAx system. The tools provide access to instrumentation diagnostics thatreased operational performance.
