Emerson announced the integration of MTP process automation standard into its control systems, as part of a continued effort to help manufacturers increase speed-to-market and reduce project and operations costs. The integration enables modular manufacturing, reduces capital and operating costs and accelerates automation deployment.
Working with industry leaders like Emerson, NAMUR has been developing MTP to create a common, open standard that requires less engineering and makes new equipment integration closer to plug-and-play.
Sean Sims, Vice President of Marketing, DeltaV platform, Emerson, said that, MTP is a significant step to help the manufacturing industries respond faster to changing markets. With the MTP implementation, Emerson is not only supporting but innovating on industry standards.
He also said that, integration between DeltaV and PACSystems automation systems as well as third-party automation systems will help create more modular, flexible manufacturing that improves speed to market for clients.
By incorporating MTP into its DeltaV and PACSystems automation systems, Emerson has eliminated the requirement for end users or system integrators to invest in additional engineering or special integration tools. With MTP, organizations can reduce engineering time and risk for both capital and operational performance projects, making it easier to quickly deliver critical products to market.
Emerson has also taken a significant step to make reliability data from its manufacturing units importable to the DeltaV system.
Emerson is a global technology and engineering company providing innovative solutions in industrial, commercial, and residential markets. The Automation Solutions business helps process, hybrid, and discrete manufacturers maximize production, protect personnel and the environment while optimizing their energy and operating costs.
