End User and Sales Force Training Seminars in Carson California
|Our YouTube Channel|
The week of May 24th we held our first of the Americas end user and sales force training seminars. Thanks to the help of the local Los Angeles ISA chapter we were able to attract around 60 registered attendees, most of them end users with a lot of good questions to ask. This year marked a new format for the Americas seminars, which focuses much more on practical application of FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology, with sessions on successful segment design and installation, commissioning, control in the field, and device diagnostics.
Emerson Process Management, Rockwell Automation, and Yokogawa all had demo systems on display incorporating a range of third party devices from suppliers like Moore Industries, Phoenix Contact, Pepperl+Fuchs, Yamatake, Endress+Hauser, Smar, and others. We created short YouTube videos based on the three primary demos that are available on our new YouTube channel. A couple are still awaiting approval, but in our first video, Al Dewey of Emerson Process Management discusses the value and practical application of FOUNDATION Fieldbus device diagnostics capabilities, including a control valve. Control valves represent a particularly lucrative opportunity when it comes to FOUNDATION Fieldbus because more money is proportionally spent on control valve routine maintenance, much of which can be avoided through the use of fieldbus diagnostics capabilities. Look for more videos from the seminar soon.
