Was not sure where to Put this, but curiously does this mean that Bentley Nevada and Commtest are now owned by ABB?

Yeah it depends what business unit they belong to. Also interesting I saw the other day that Emerson are looking to purchase Rockwell. Don't think that would mean much for CSi and I am not sure there is much left of Entek anyway. Would have been interesting if Entek still had a large share of the marketplace.

No I believe Bently moved to another business unit earlier this year for some reason.....

I don't how it works in the States, but here in the UK Rockwell still refer to the Entek product range. It's almost like a separate business within the main business, which requires its own support agreement (Esafe). I think that the data collectors are made by Diagnostic Instruments (now owned by SKF I think), but they still have the Emonitor software, so it would be interesting to see if any cross-over occurs with CSi.

Going off on a tangent big Al, I have had a few guys mention to me they have had enough of Rockwell and support for emonitor and enpaca etc are bad, was talking to a guy yesterday who has been using Rockwell for years, and he just bought a csi 2140.

I seen the blurb on linked alright that Emerson were trying to buy Rockwell, but I'm sure that Vibe equipment is not even a factor in that situation. Allen Bradley are a dominant force in automation, and in ireland at least have a stronger foothold than ' control techniques' (Emerson)

Actually Emerson sold off Control Techniques earlier this year.  They have the DCS market covered well with Delta-V and Ovation, acquiring Rockwell gives them coverage in the PLC market as well, right now the really only have specialized products there.

I don't think Entek has any major roll in this.  I doubt Emerson would care about the portables or software, but they have some nice transmitters that would fill some gaps in the CSI product line.

Bently Nevada was under GE Oil & Gas, which was merged with Baker Hughes this summer.  We are now Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE).

I saw a posting today that Rockwell refused to enter discussion with Emerson regarding their buyout offer! Business as usual for us peons!

That is what they call themselves here locally in Melbourne Australia - at least from email comms as of a week ago.  And these entities are being shoved from pillar to post which doesn't do anyone any good.  It is where these large organisations fall down. They constantly think about themselves and not their customers. rgds
