Congratulations to Ian Verhappen for Making it into Automation Hall of Fame!

Our friends over at ControlGlobal are famous for their Process Automation Hall of Fame.  In Walt Boyes’ first post of the year in his “SoundOff” blog, he reveals the inductees into the 2013 Process Automation Hall of Fame. We at the Fieldbus Foundation are pleased to announce that our friend Ian Verhappen is one of those names.  Ian has been a long time proponent of FOUNDATION fieldbus and has been a great evangelizer of the benefits of intelligent devices in general.  We congratulate Ian on his pending induction into the Process Automation Hall of Fame.  Look for the full story in the February edition of Control magazine!
