Ian Verhappen Blogs About Control in the Field

Our longtime friend and FOUNDATION fieldbus certified trainer Ian Verhappen recently contributed to the Canadian Automation Manufacturing Blog.  Ian talks about some of the benefits and basics of control in the field — how to implement and why.  Here is a great quote from the blog post.  I think it illustrates very well that the reluctance that people have to implement control in the field is often misplaced:

  • “I have had many people tell me that they will not implement Control in the Field because they wonder how they will be able to control the process should something happen to the control valve. I simply ask them, “If your control valve is not working well enough to control the process, what are you using to control the process?“”
