Process Solutions


Our value-added solutions include using the Werner Electric Supply process trainer to help customers maneuver conceptual, technical, scope, and other project related steps for process control applications, or when considering a DCS upgrade or new installation.

Our goal at Werner Electric is to help you achieve a single, plant wide control system strategy. PlantPAx is scalable and in many cases incorporates a customer’s installed Rockwell Automation ControlLogix and CompactLogix platforms into a plant wide architecture without the need to purchase additional Rockwell Automation software.

If you are:

  • Adding process based automatic controls
  • Replacing a vintage DCS approaching obsolescence

Let us help you:

  • Evaluating the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx Modern DCS solution against other vendors
  • Detailing benefits of your ControlLogix 1756 and/or CompactLogix 1769 PLCs


What is MiA?

MiA stands for Multifunction instrument Asset. MiA was designed by Rodney Howard P.E., CAP, product manager of process controls for Werner Electric Supply, with design recommendations from the International Society of Automation (ISA). MiA is an 82"x26"x80" mobile unit that can be brought to customers, colleges, and high schools for automation process control training.

How Does MiA Work?

MiA can replicate many processes found in manufacturing plants, providing customers real-time training without disrupting production, wasting valuable product, or causing damage to customer machines.
