Ann Arbor, Mich. - Entivity Inc. and Comtrol Corp. announced May 8 a strategic partnership that integrates Comtrol's Ethernet-connected device servers and multiport controllers as the preferred connectivity hardware for all Entivity's control software. The offering enables customers in the industrial manufacturing, batch processing, and material handling automation markets to replace PLC-based systems with PC-based control and monitoring capabilities.

"Comtrol is pleased to be selected by Entivity, the leading provider of PC-based control software, as their preferred vendor for legacy serial device control. Along with connectivity via Ethernet, Comtrol offers Entivity customers remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities for their serial devices such as servos, flow meters, RFID readers, and barcode scanners. This will increase the openness and visibility of plant operations, regardless of location," said Bradford Beale, general manager of Comtrol's Industrial Applications Division.
