A webinar about the Rotork Master Station was be held on 20th June 2019. Hosted by Networks Product Manager, Mike Howard, the hour-long webinar discusses the technical features of the Rotork Master Station including its third-party device integration, fully pre-configured database and large touch screen interface.

The Rotork Master Station provides the high integrity link from the Distributed Control System (DCS) to the devices in the field.
It comes complete with a large touch screen interface to allow operators and engineers to see exactly what is happening to the system and the field devices at any time.
A hot standby Rotork Master Station allows for continued availability of the system in the event of a component failure. Host ports allow connection to multiple host systems at the same time with redundant communication links where necessary. In the event of a fault occurring, the changeover to the standby is seamless without loss of data and control.
