WirelessHART User Seminars for Europe and North America Announced

A free one-day educational seminar for users on WirelessHART technology, the industry’s first international wireless communication standard, is being presented by the HART Communication Foundation in Europe and North America during 2012.

A free one-day educational seminar for users on WirelessHART technology, the industry’s first international wireless communication standard, is being presented by the HART Communication Foundation in Europe and North America during 2012. The vendor-neutral seminar, Using WirelessHART Technology in Process Industries, includes presentations by technology experts, live demonstrations of WirelessHART technology (IEC 62591; EN 62591), and firsthand experience of the technology’s interoperability, reliability and ease of use.

Seminars are scheduled in Aix-en-Provence, France (Thu, 28 Jun), Baton Rouge, LA (Tue, 14 Aug), Houston, TX (Thu, 16 Aug), Edmonton, Canada (Tue, 18 Sep), Calgary, Canada (Thu, 20 Sep) and Frankfurt, Germany (Thu, 27 Sep). Attendees earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs). There is no charge to attend the seminars but seating is limited and registration is required. Users can view the current schedule and register online at wirelesshart.hartcomm.org.

“Users who attend these free seminars discover for themselves the powerful benefits WirelessHART communication provides,” says Ron Helson, HART Communication Foundation Executive Director. “For instance, they will see devices from different manufacturers forming a robust mesh network relaying data from one device to the other and integrating that data with wired solutions.”
 
Seminar topics include understanding and using WirelessHART technology in the plant environment and planning and implementing a WirelessHART project. The live demonstrations show the interoperability of WirelessHART gateways, devices and adapters from multiple manufacturers and demonstrate the simple process of a device joining the network.          

The seminars are sponsored by Foundation member companies: ABB, Emerson, Endress+Hauser, MACTek, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, ProComSol, and Siemens.

 

How use of robotic technology is sweeping across all industries
We asked nearly 60 industrial end-users and system integrators about their use of robotic technology. This report details the trends they identified and how to compare different types of robots.
