The Fieldbus Foundation, and its sponsoring companies, are running their first North American seminar for 2014 next week on June 5, 2014. The seminar to-date has nearly 110 registered attendees. It’s going to be a great event.
In 2014, the seminar series was entirely revamped from scratch. We’ve got all new presentations, a new speaker, and most importantly an all new live-process demo. A core group of volunteers helped us at the Fieldbus Foundation build a really great demo that is most certainly going to impress attendees.
The seminar is a full one day event that walks attendees through a project life-cycle from inception to completion. We talk about; how to select the right technology for your application, how important having your personnel trained before a project can generate huge ROIs down the road, how making informed decisions on the front-end reduces headaches on the back-end, how simplifying segment loading eases design stages, and how good installation practices reduce intermittent issues as the plant ages. Furthermore, we discuss the advances in device configuration and commissioning as well as how to make the biggest impact with FOUNDATION Fieldbus. I’ll give you a hint, it’s in the data! Attendees will learn the importance of taking full advantage of the advanced diagnostics inherent to FOUNDATION, and how Control in the Field can be a quarterly or yearly profit-saver by reducing unplanned shutdowns.
These seminars host some of the most knowledgeable FOUNDATION fieldbus experts in North America so be sure to not miss out if we’ll be in your area! If we’re not coming to your area, be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a visit!
The seminar also provides attendees with PDH certificates and a 10% discount for FOUNDATION Certified Training at any participating FCTP site in North America. We’ll even feed you all a nice lunch so be sure to come out and learn about the latest news and advice from the Fieldbus Foundation and its participating member companies.
A thanks goes out to all of our participation companies that help make these events possible and allow us to offer them free of charge to all of you. We’d also like to offer a special thanks to Mike Clark with BusCorp, Canada who has been instrumental in the design & setup of the new demo unit!
Be sure to REGISTER for our event in Calgary, and come see the latest technology from your suppliers (our sponsors)!
