Rotork joined the Endress+Hauser Open Integration partner program, a collaboration of 13 manufacturers to streamline interaction of complementing products. All partners in the program are suppliers of control technology, fieldbus infrastructures, measurement technology or actuator technology. Endress+Hauser provides process and laboratory instrumentation, products and solutions for industrial process measurement and automation.

Rotork expects the initiative will remove integration issues of multi-vendor solutions and improve integration for communication protocols, according to a press release.

The use of open standards means that manufacturers can collaborate to ensure products and services will easily work together. Ultimately, customers will experience increased ease in ordering, commissioning and installation of their products, members of the Open Integration partner program anticipate, according to Rotork.
