Rockwell Automation's migration solutions help you incorporate newer technologies at a phased pace that is comfortable for you. These solutions are designed to minimize downtime, maximize operational success, and lessen the risk of maintaining legacy equipment.



Migrate Your Distributed Control System

It is time to rethink what to expect from a distributed control system (DCS). To drive productivity, increase efficiencies, and reduce costs, you must integrate all of your automation operations. By migrating your outdated DCS to the modern PlantPAx® DCS, you will be one step closer to achieving The Connected Enterprise.

You should migrate your system when:

  • Your legacy DCS is currently hindering productivity and quality
  • Your management requires better access to information from across your plant
  • You are spending significant money on custom integration
