The Fieldbus Foundation UK Marketing Committee (FFUKMC) will be a leading participant of the forthcoming Hazardex In The Regions conference and exhibition series 2014/2015 as an event sponsor, exhibitor and conference speaker.

Hazardex

The Hazardex In The Regions conference and exhibition events are targeted at hazardous operations personnel in the process industries and will take place in locations convenient for the oil & gas, pharmaceutical, chemical, utilities, new energy and food & beverage industries.

The FFUKMC will present a paper that addresses “The application of FOUNDATION™ fieldbus and the intelligent field towards improving safety in hazardous area process plant”. FOUNDATION fieldbus technology was designed for use within the process industry and the hardware specification has always had hazardous area implementation in mind. The presentation will describe how the application of the technology works to reduce risk to workers and also increases productivity. The FOUNDATION fieldbus design and its application can steamline work procedures and increase the data available to make informed business decisions based on asset status and device degradation information.

The conference speaker programme will also include presentations from senior UK HSE and UKPIA staff. Full details of the conference programme can be found on the Hazardex In The Regions – London webpages.

A table top exhibition in an adjoining area will offer all conference delegates and exhibition visitors the opportunity to view and discuss participants’ products and services with company and organisation representatives. The Fieldbus Foundation display will include a live FOUNDATION technology demonstration for a practical, hands-on understanding of the technology, its application and usability with a focus on supporting a FOUNDATION installation through asset management; device replacement; calibration and recommended maintenance practices.

In addition to the conference programme and exhibition, all pre-registered delegates will receive an information pack, refreshments and lunch.
