The St. Louis, Missouri-based technology and engineering company, Emerson, has just opened a customer-focused Solutions Center at the regional headquarters of its Automation Solutions business in Singapore. 

The newly opened Emerson Solutions Center in Singapore displays the capabilities of Emerson’s Plantweb™ digital ecosystem, the industry’s most comprehensive industrial internet of things (IoT) automation platform. The Plantweb system consists of standards-based hardware, software, intelligent devices, and services for securely implementing Industrial IoT-based solutions that can expand digital intelligence to the entire manufacturing enterprise.

The Emerson Solutions Center in Singapore has collaboration spaces with state-of-the-art multimedia technology, including augmented reality and virtual reality. Customers can get an immersive experience using Plantweb technologies to operate and maintain the digital plant of the future – with wireless sensors feeding data through a digital communications network that gets analyzed by software programs and becomes available for actionable use through apps and cloud-based services. Emerson experts can help customers determine which digitalization projects provide the greatest near-term and long-term business impact. 

The Emerson Solutions Center includes two built-out plant settings. The Digital Plant in the Center features a scaled-down replica of a process manufacturing facility equipped with Emerson’s foundational digital solutions for process control and safety systems, as well as new Industrial IoT technologies. The Digital Plant simulates the processes of a typical facility, such as an oil refinery, a pharmaceutical plant or a power plant. The Center also includes a Central Control Room where customers can experience simulations of critical manufacturing processes for process optimization.
