Modernizing and digitalizing process plants

The process industry is in a state of change

A consistent data stream is the basis for predictive maintenanceIn many production operations, control systems from different manufacturers and different generations are in use due to long runtimes – many systems are already decades old. This results in a corresponding pressure to modernize process systems. The way to a modern, digital plant is based on a three-step plan. The goal is to bring the communications up to the state of the art so as to optimize maintenance processes, reduce unplanned failures, and make inspection rounds paperless.

Never change a running system – this phrase fits especially well to the process industry.

HIGHLIGHTS 2018

Your partner on the journey to digitalization

Highlights 2018

We are experiencing sweeping changes due to digitalization. In the face of this, only those who grasp the opportunities and explore these new horizons will be successful.

At the heart of digitalization is the intelligent networking of business processes, systems,
components, of all things and people. This networking creates new, self‑controlling and self‑optimizing systems with enormous potential for efficiency and productivity increases.

Phoenix Contact is already exploiting this potential now in in‑house applications. Based on the experiences gained from this work, we are developing new products and solutions that will support you on your journey toward digitalization.

Our Highlights 2018 brochure provides you with a few examples of these: from smart connectors, through to our control platform for the digital future, and easy access to the cloud.
