Advanced Energy’s Onyx-S and Onyx-S2C Offer Plug-and-Play Integration Which Complements the Rockwell Automation Portfolio and Vision of The Connected Enterprise

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS), a global leader in precision power conversion and advanced thermal processing solutions, today announced that its Onyx-S and Onyx-S2C optical temperature pyrometers have gained Rockwell Automation Add-On Profiles (AOPs), enabling plug-and-play connectivity into Rockwell Automation controlled systems.

These AOPs are custom software wizards that allow quick and easy configuration of third-party devices to communicate with Rockwell Automation control systems. Advanced Energy worked closely with Rockwell Automation to develop AOPs for the Onyx-S and Onyx-S2C with features that enable our customers to quickly integrate optical temperature pyrometers into their new and existing thermal processes.

“The new AOPs for our Onyx-S and Onyx-S2C pyrometers make it easy for customers to incorporate our sensors into the EtherNet/IP network within the Rockwell Automation integrated architecture,” said Mark Ritzheimer, senior product marketing manager for Advanced Energy. “This gives OEMs and manufacturers improved flexibility, control and faster time-to-market when selecting precision temperature measurement sensors for their demanding industrial applications.”

AE has been an Encompass Partner with Rockwell Automation since 2014, and both its optical temperature pyrometers and SCR-power controllers are an integral part of implementing closed-loop control for critical thermal processes in a wide range of industrial markets.

AE’s Onyx series of optical temperature pyrometers meet the most demanding accuracy and precision requirements over a broad temperature range, for industrial manufacturing applications and processes. For more information, visit:
