Virtual Workshop for End Users and Integrators
October 20, 2021 7:00AM - 11:00AM CDT
As process automation facilities increase their adoption of full digital automation solutions, minimizing transition costs including workforce training, instrumentation additions, and automation software upgrades is crucial to positive project ROI.
This free four-hour workshop provides an opportunity for users and suppliers to engage with subject matter experts to better understand the available technology options and how they might be successfully deployed in a facility.
Topics will include presentations and product demonstrations focusing on the evolving technology landscape in process automation including:
Ethernet-APL: The new two-wire, intrinsically-safe physical layer suitable for use in demanding process automation applications.
FDI: The Field Device Integration specification brings a secure, easy to use, scalable and standardized solution to the complex process of integrating devices with host systems.
HART-IP: The Ethernet enabled version of the well-known HART protocol has been used in infrastructure products for nearly a decade and is now poised for use in field instrumentation.
PA-DIM: An OPC UA based device information model that bridges the gap between IT and OT systems and enables fulfillment of the popular Namur Open Architecture (NOA) use cases.
