May 22, 2019
Emerson Automation Solutions has announced the expansion of its product portfolio to include new programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to enable more comprehensive manufacturing control and production
optimization. Acquired as part of Emerson’s acquisition of General Electric Co.’s Intelligent Platforms group, the new PLCs will enable Emerson to provide more end-to-end automation solutions to its existing process control market, as well as expand into the rapidly growing hybrid and discrete markets, as well in industries where PLCs are sometimes preferred or required for faster response and machine control.
According to Emerson, the expanded automation and control portfolio will enable more operational performance and efficiency for the company’s end-user customers in life sciences, metals and mining, power and water, food and beverage, and packaging industries, which often blend process and discrete machine control to manufacture and deliver finished products.
