Rockwell System Integrator Disciplines at Malisko

The integrator program through Rockwell Automation has several technology disciplines integrators can leverage for their business solutions. Malisko has expertise with all of these program disciplines, and we offer in-person, on-demand training for the capabilities that fit your strategy and project.

Control | Visualization | General Motion | Machine Safety | Mechatronics | Digital Engineering

Malisko’s solutions include several verified implementations of Rockwell Automation’s Integrated Architecture, which is the key component in being recognized as having expertise in Control under the System Integrator Program. Rockwell’s Integrated Architecture converges control and information, delivering plant-wide optimization built on five Industry Leading Features and five Core Technologies.

Industry Leading Features

Multiple Disciplines: Functionality for a full range of automation applications with common equipment and standards.

Scalable Dimensions: Offerings that are right-sized by product, architecture and core multiple discipline functionality.

Ethernet/Internet Protocol (IP): A single information technology (IT)-friendly network for enterprise and industrial applications.

Real-Time Information: Actionable data shared by your control and business systems.

Knowledge Integration: Device and system integration designed to maximize and secure your intellectual property.

Core Technologies

Logix: Scalable, flexible and programmable automation controllers with a common control engine and development environment.

Kinetix: World-class, high-performance motion control.

Stratix: Scalable network solutions for any application and network requirements.

View: Visualization products that provide critical, real-time data for every industry, application, and manufacturing environment.

PowerFlex: Variable speed motor control for applications from low to medium voltage, simple to complex.

PlantPAx® | Batch | FactoryTalk® Brew

Designing, developing and delivering PlantPAx applications successfully is the key requirement for the Rockwell Process System Integrator discipline.

PlantPAx provides customers with a world-class, modern distributed control system built on Rockwell’s Integrated Architecture utilizing standard-based architecture. Malisko’s experience includes several PlantPAx deployments in both Greenfield and Brownfield expansions, replacements of antiquated DCS-based control systems, and modernizations of legacy Rockwell-based control systems.

Low Voltage Drives | LV Drive Systems | MCC | Medium Voltage

Power System Integrator Partners have a distinct skill set in the specification, configuration and deployment of Rockwell Automation’s power components and energy monitoring software. Moreover, this discipline within the Partner program has stringent testing requirements for advanced electrical engineering topics in the area of power distribution design, including the application of Rockwell’s PQ&EM products for corrective power issues as well as the full integration of monitoring hardware and software for complete Power and Energy solutions for manufacturers.

Analytics | Advanced Analytics | IIoT | MES | Augmented Reality

Information Partners leverage Rockwell’s FactoryTalk Suite of products to provide a means of connecting real-time information being generated by plant assets on the production floor to the appropriate audience to make informed business decisions.

The majority of our projects include the integration of several components of the FactoryTalk Suite, such as:

  • FactoryTalk Historian Site Edition
  • FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI
  • FactoryTalk Metrics
  • FactoryTalk Transaction Manager
  • FactoryTalk AssetCentre

The FactoryTalk Suite utilizes the FactoryTalk Services Platform, which forms a Services Oriented Architecture that shares definitions, administration and real-time data across the FactoryTalk Components. We leverage this “off-the-shelf” architecture and avoid risky “black box” type solutions to seamlessly integrate your information solutions into your Rockwell-based control system and provide you with information that matters to make informed decisions.

Industrial IT and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions are ever-important parts of the Information discipline, as the convergence of IT and Operational Technology (OT) has been transforming the industrial automation industry for over a decade. The adoption of unmodified internet protocol running on Ethernet in place of proprietary communications systems has fundamentally changed the way we design control systems. Now more than ever, the computing, security and communications resources that are the backbone of our OT systems mirror best practices established in the Enterprise IT world.

This convergence, however, requires specialized skill sets and certifications to properly design, configure and deploy robust Industrial IT systems. We leverage the Converged Plant-wide Ethernet (CPwE) Cisco/Rockwell-validated designs as the basis for the logical framework of our Industrial IT solutions. VMware virtualization, Stratus fault-tolerant servers, Cisco Next Generation Firewall security, robust Panduit IAI infrastructure deployments and advanced routing/switching practices are among the major areas of specialization for our Industrial IT team.
