Endress+Hauser and Rockwell Automation have opened a new Process Training Unit (PTU) in Philadelphia, Pa. The Process Training Unit features Endress+Hauser's instruments and Rockwell Automation's PlantPAx process automation system to help educate field technicians, engineers and sales personnel.
The PTU provides learning with hands-on activities. Participants learn the application, installation, operation and diagnostic procedures related to many types of process instrumentation and control processes. Communication protocols are also demonstrated including EtherNet/IP, HART, Profibus PA, and Foundation fieldbus.
Other PTUs are located in La Porte (Houston), Texas; Memphis, Tenn; Mobile, Ala.; Matthews, N.C.; and Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. More units are planned around the U.S.
