Simulation on a grand scale

Endress+Hauser and Rockwell Automation open first joint European test center

Date de publication: 13.09.2016

Core elements of the test plant at Endress+Hauser's site in Maulburg, Germany are three massive tanks, each one containing between 2,000 and 26,000 liters of oil. On the tanks, more than 20 instruments from Endress+Hauser with different measuring methods have been installed, all of them communicating with Rockwell Automation’s Plant PAx control system. In this way, all personnel at the test center obtain specific information and diagnostics relating to the tank contents at a glance.

For customer training and product validation

The original idea of a joint installation came from training centers established by Endress+Hauser with the support of Rockwell Automation in recent years: the Process Training Units. At ten facilities in the USA, Colombia, China and Canada, sales representatives and product specialists from both companies host practical training sessions for their customers. These courses comprise installation training, simulations under real conditions, diagnostics and comparisons of different technologies.

With an investment of several hundred thousand euros, the first joint test center for Europe in Maulburg takes this concept a few steps further and establishes new standards: It is surrounded by the Endress+Hauser production site for level and pressure measurement technology and focuses on product validation.

Research and development take center stage to align new products to customer requirements at an early phase under real application and environmental conditions. “All of our products must pass testing at the validation center and prove that they create a sustainable added value for customers. They are exposed to extreme endurance tests,” emphasized Gerd Gritsch, Division Manager Quality Management with Endress+Hauser Maulburg.

Automation specialists bundle forces

Increasing customer benefit was the trigger for a strategic alliance between Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser more than ten years ago. The former CEOs, Keith Nosbusch and Klaus Endress, promised to combine their strengths for the benefit of customers and to create systems which communicate flawlessly with each other.

In Maulburg, this includes, as well as research and development, training employees and customers at the validation center and offering hands-on learning for students. Last year, 2,600 external visitors trained on the test plant’s tanks and systems. Now additional trainees will come from Rockwell Automation.
