Rockwell Automation

Offered as an add-on option to RSLogix Version 16, the RS Logix 5000 Fuzzy Designer allows users to create fuzzy logic algorithms for use in any of the Logix PACs. FuzzyDesigner offers a fuzzy logic design environment, which helps create advanced control capabilities through a rule-based decision making process, eliminating the usual detailed programming process. This reduces development time, improves maintainability and eases fuzzy logic control setup. The Logix control platform consists of seamlessly integrated control, network and visualization components designed to service a broad range of applications with a focus on scalability, ease-of-use, and lowest cost of ownership.

Process & batch control:


Siemens Energy & Automation

PCS 7 Box combines the best of both PLC and DCS capabilities in one compact industrial PC to create a system that is ideal for small-scale, hybrid process applications. Its small form factor and industrial packaging allows the PCS 7 Box to be used in areas where DCS could not typically be used (like mounted on skids). Since it uses the same software and hardware as a “full-blown” PCS 7 system, it is easy to share hardware, software, personnel, and intellectual property among different sized applications within a manufacturing enterprise. This scalability ensures smooth technology transfer and quicker time to market as new products move from the lab to pilot plant to production.
