March 2011 Fieldbus & Industrial Networking

ProSoft Technology recently announced its appointment as the exclusive provider for the SlotServer product line designed and manufactured by FieldServer Technologies. The SlotServer products provide in-rack connectivity between the Rockwell Automation ControlLogix control platform and an array of building automation systems and fire alarm control panel protocols. The agreement became effective on 1 November 2010.

“The agreement with FieldServer is a key strategic initiative which will both expand ProSoft Technology’s range of network solutions and widen the availability of the SlotServer products to ControlLogix users through ProSoft Technology’s extensive global distribution channel,” commented Ken Roslan, commercial marketing manager for ProSoft Technology.

“FieldServer Technologies is proud to partner with ProSoft Technology as the sales channel for SlotServer. ProSoft Technology’s global distribution strength and experience is expected to enhance SlotServer’s reach into the industrial market greatly,” says Richard Theron, sales manager for FieldServer Technologies.

The SlotServer product range includes the following solutions:

Allen-Bradley PCCC Ethernet communication module: The PCCC (PC Cubed) Ethernet module allows legacy PLC-5E and SLC-505 controllers that do not support EtherNet/IP to communicate with a ControlLogix platform.

LonWorks communication modules for building automation, transportation, and process control: The LonWorks modules provide two-way connectivity to energy management systems, HVAC controls, VFD, generators and building control systems available from manufacturers such as Honeywell, Circon, Johnson Controls, Echelon, Tridium and Loytec.

BACnet communication modules for the monitoring and control of building operations: The BACnet modules allow process control plants to interface their building management and process control information.

Metasys N2 communication modules for building control: The Metasys N2 module provides connectivity to the extensive array of Metasys building control systems and devices manufactured by Johnson Controls and their partners.
