Endress+Hauser, a leader in process measurement and instrumentation, has concluded an agreement with Lumen that makes the independent electrical distributor its latest Authorized Channel Partner.
The move, which leverages the strategic relationship between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser Canada Ltd., is a major development in the process automation sector in Canada.
Lumen can now provide its process automation customers with new opportunities through the enhanced integration of Endress+Hauser’s measurement technology with the Rockwell Automation platform.
The pre-tested and validated designs between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser offerings help reduce the costs associated with bringing new measuring points or a new production line into the manufacturing facility.
“The evolution to Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things offers limitless opportunity for Canadian companies,” said Anthony Varga, General Manager at Endress+Hauser.
“Thanks to the strength of our partnership with Rockwell Automation and Lumen’s expertise, we’ll be able to go to greater lengths to help modernise the Canadian manufacturing sector.”
Customers of Lumen will also have the opportunity to enjoy a single source provider, enabling them to acquire the PlantPAx system, a modern Distributed Control System with best-in-class field instrumentation and measurement solutions – trusted globally.
Manufacturers face many challenges when integrating advanced instrumentation into a plant-wide process control system.
Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser are able to deliver pre-engineered, pre-tested, supported and maintained integrated instrumentation, control and information solutions.
Their partnering efforts focus around tools for integration, plant-wide advanced diagnostics, and overall helping customers manage their process system lifecycles.
