Rockwell Automation (www.rockwellautomation.com) has purchased the assets of SoftSwitching Technologies (www.softswitch.com), a provider of industrial power quality detection and protection systems, located in Middleton, Wisconsin.

SoftSwitching Technologies’ solutions are engineered to improve uptime in manufacturing production by identifying and correcting brief power disruptions called “voltage sags.” Typically, voltage sags can cause computerized machinery to go off-line, precision instruments to fail, and control systems to shut down.

SoftSwitching Technologies’ battery-free products are designed to provide cost and performance advantages over battery-based, three-phase uninterruptible power supplies or constant voltage transformers. The global, centralized intelligent network system also provides power grid alerts so manufacturers can monitor activity and correlate power quality events with unscheduled downtime, saving hours of guesswork and mechanical diagnostics.
