Attending Honeywell User Group Meeting Americas

I am attending the Honeywell Americas User Group Meeting this week at the JW Marriott Desert ridge in Phoenix.  HUG is one of the largest user group meetings in the world of process automation.  Preliminary reports show over a thousand attendees, with topics ranging from process safety to alarm management and, of course, fieldbus.  I will be presenting the Fieldbus Foundation current state and roadmap on Wednesday at 2 PM.  Honeywell is also showcasing their fieldbus solutions in their exhibit space this week, which includes the new Experion Fieldbus Interface Module.  Also of note are the Assset Manager PKS Plant Asset Management platform and Honeywell field devices.  There are also a lot of Honeywell partners here that offer fieldbus solutions, including MTL, Pepperl+Fuchs, Stahl, and third party field device and control valve suppliers that offer fieldbus products under Honeywell’s PKS Advantage program.
