Endress+Hauser's Open Integration partner program now consists of 13 partnering companies

Endress+Hauser reported March 30 that Softing Industrial Automation has joined its 13-member Open Integration partner program that tests, documents and streamlines interaction of their products for typical process automation applications.

“We go beyond established test methods in this program by scrutinizing the functionality of complete system architectures in a lab environment for specific fields of application or customer solutions,” explains Jörg Reinkensmeier, marketing manager at Endress+Hauser. “After successful completion of the tests, the so-called reference topologies are published in the form of mutual recommendations.”

The program's current members are: Auma Riester, Bürkert, Festo, Flowserve, Hima Paul Hildebrandt, Honeywell Process Solutions, Mitsubishi Electric, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, Softing and Turck.

“Our companies have enjoyed many years of successful cooperation, which has now manifested itself in our decision to join the Open Integration partner program,” says Thomas Hilz, vice president for strategic accounts at Softing. "We're looking forward to the coming years in which we'll help our partners with the connectivity of their sensors.”

Reinkensmeier adds: "Softing strengthens our partner program with further expertise in the area of data exchange and providing information at the field level. Apart from networking process control technology, connectivity is playing an increasingly important role for IIoT solutions. Our aim is to exploit this potential together with all of our Open Integration partners.”
