Endress+Hauser, Rockwell Automation Open Process Training In Philadelphia

Endress+Hauser and Rockwell Automation have announced the opening of a new Process Training Unit (PTU) in Philadelphia, which features Endress+Hauser instruments and the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx process automation system designed to educate field technicians, engineers, and sales personnel.

The PTU offers hands-on activities in which participants can learn the application, installation, operation and diagnostic procedures related to many types of process instrumentation and control processes. Various communication protocols are also demonstrated, such as EtherNet/IP, HART, Profibus PA, and Foundation Fieldbus.

There are three process demonstration units that are designed for specific market needs. The first includes numerous fully functional flow, pressure, temperature, level and analysis instruments. Rockwell’s PlantPAx system regulates the flow paths and velocity of the process by actuating control valves and adjusting the speed of pump drives.

The second unit simulates the types of processes and procedures found in the Life Sciences industries. An analytical instrumentation measures the pH, conductivity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen and optical density. The controls of the bioreactor are implemented with Rockwell’s ControlLogix PAC and PlantPAx system.

Lastly, the PTU includes a demo unit that simulates environmental, water and wastewater treatment applications. The system uses common additives to simulate the same type of conditions found in environmental monitoring and water/wastewater treatment applications.

The PTU includes over 5,000 square feet of classroom and hands-on training space. Other PTUs are located at La Porte (Houston); Memphis, Tenn.; Mobile, Ala.; Matthews, N.C.; and Vega Alta, Puerto Rico, with additional units being planned around the United States.
