Stratus Technologies has announced that it will showcase its 2nd generation Solution-in-a-Box control architecture running PlantPAx on ztC Edge and the industry’s first immersive Edge Computing experience, Stratus ECX, at Rockwell Automation’s Automation Fair, November 9 – 11 in Houston, Texas.
“All industries are looking for turnkey solutions to scale control and automation at the edge,” says Stephen Greene, Vice President of Global Business Development and Marketing at Stratus. “Working closely with Rockwell Automation, we are delivering validated architectures that save engineering time, enable rapid deployment, and simplify OT and IT management. Our 2nd Gen PlantPAx Solution-in-a-Box is a highly reliable, redundant and virtualized solution, and our virtual Edge Computing Experience demonstrates what can be accomplished today with this and other solutions.”
Stratus’ 2nd Gen Solution-in-a-Box Control Architecture
Stratus’ 2nd Gen Solution-in-a-Box architecture, developed and characterized with Rockwell Automation, features PlantPAx running on Stratus’ second generation ztC Edge platform, announced in August, for turnkey deployment in Food & Beverage, Pharma Manufacturing, Chemicals, Oil & Gas, Water and Wastewater, and other industrial automation environments. ztC Edge 250i delivers 2X performance and expands the Solution-in-a-Box architecture to support larger I/O counts and more sophisticated applications.
Stratus will present “Rapid Deployment of PlantPAx Solution-in-a-Box for Discrete and Process Manufacturing Control Architectures” in Room 320A at Automation Fair on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. CT and Thursday, Nov. 11 at 9 a.m. CT.
Stratus Edge Computing Experience (ECX) Illustrates Success at the Edge
Operational excellence at the edge continues to be a critical success factor for the industrial sector to transform processes and harness data for new insight and efficiency. Edge Computing platforms provide the decentralized, local processing and reliability to run business critical software, modernize infrastructure, and enable new architectures for Industry 4.0 and IoT technologies.
To illustrate the wide range of Edge Computing use cases and environments in industrial automation, Stratus developed the Stratus Edge Computing Experience (ECX) which provides end users, Machine Builders, and SIs an immersive experience to explore edge automation.
