Rotork announced it has joined the Endress+Hauser Open Integration partner program. Endress+Hauser’s Open Integration program is a collaboration of 13 manufacturers, now including Rotork, to streamline interaction of complementing products. All partners in the program are suppliers of control technology, fieldbus infrastructures, measurement technology or actuator technology. This new initiative for Rotork removes integration issues of multi-vendor solutions and improves integration for communication protocols. The use of these common, open standards means that manufacturers collaborate to ensure products and services will easily work together. Customers will ultimately experience increased ease in ordering, commissioning and installation of their products.
“Within the Open Integration program, we scrutinize relevant aspects of basic, feature and workflow integration ensuring the full functionality of complete system architectures for process control as well as plant asset management on premise and in the cloud,” said Jörg Reinkensmeier, marketing manager at Endress+Hauser. “Having Rotork join our partner program provides us with additional expertise in actuators, instrumentation and the larger flow control market. We will exploit this potential together with all of our Open Integration partners giving our customers freedom of choice.”
