Rockwell Automation Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information, and The Pyure Company, announced last week they have entered into a five-year strategic agreement that will allow the companies to work together to provide solutions to improve indoor air quality and fight the spread of COVID-19.
Pyure is a world-leading and innovative air purifying technology company that designs and manufactures ultraviolet-based commercial air purifiers. Pyure’s solutions kill more than 99% of the most common indoor pathogens, including the COVID-19 virus, according to the company.
Pyure has integrated Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and knowledge capture solutions from Rockwell’s FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, providing a single solution to collect, aggregate, and securely access industrial operations data.
As a result, Pyure’s customers can access real-time data indicating how Pyure is protecting their environments while integrating data and control into their building management strategy.
The joint technology assets will allow customers to compare indoor and outdoor conditions to choose the best strategy for their building and industrial processes.
Customers will also be able to manage their Pyure systems from a single location and integrate their own devices into a common gateway, dashboard, and mobile app platform, giving them the ability to troubleshoot remotely and receive system service.
“As a global leader in industrial automation, Rockwell is proud to provide companies like Pyure with solutions that maximize operational efficiencies and deliver predictive and augmented maintenance advantages,” said Rockwell’s Jason Adams, vice president of information software and solutions Americas. “With the COVID-19 virus remaining a top health concern around the world, we at Rockwell look forward to providing products and software that allow Pyure and its customers to access their data faster and easier.”
