    A complete, integrated solution

    The Foxboro Evo distributed control system is a leading industrial automation solution. It infuses Schneider Electric’s intelligent power and motor control centers (iPMCC) with a range of valuable benefits through enhanced connectivity:
     
    • Disseminates critical information to every corner of a facility at every stage of the process
    • Anticipates failures in continuous and critical processes and devices
    • Reduces downtime and increases energy efficiency
    • Consolidates critical information for easy decision making
    • Enhances safety with higher process availability and industry-specific certifications

    • Streamlined Engineering

      Foxboro Evo DCS and iPMCC systems are integrated from day one to work together, reducing project lead time.
