Fieldbus Foundation at OSEA

The Fieldbus Foundation participated in the OSEA2012 oil & gas industry exhibition in Singapore 27-30 November 2012. The large booth included all leading suppliers of FOUNDATION fieldbus process automation systems, field instrumentation, and fieldbus infrastructure.

From the OSEA Web site:

“Established since 1976, OSEA is Asia’s most important business technology event for the Oil and Gas industry. The event gathers key companies from around the globe in an extensive showcase of products, solutions and technologies for both Upstream and Downstream. “

Offshore platforms, FPSO vessels, and onshore oil fields are long time users of FOUNDATION fieldbus. The success at these sites has seen FLNG vessels now adopting fieldbus as well. Downstream refining, LNG processing, and petrochemical plants are also major users of fieldbus, where the largest plants in the world use fieldbus.

Visitors had a chance to see the latest improvements to the technology including ITK6 interoperability, NAMUR NE107 device diagnostic alarm management, graphical device user interfaces, and host profile interoperability registration etc. Systems, devices, and infrastructure from Azbil, EIM, Emerson, Fisher, Honeywell, Lapp, Leoni, Micro Motion, MooreHawke, MTL, Pepperl+Fuchs, Rosemount, SMAR, Stahl, Topworx, and Turck were demonstrated live in various configurations.
