Seminar Explains How to Design Fieldbus Segment
Pepperl+Fuchs is hosting three educational Foundation Fieldbus Segment Design Seminars on July 22, Sept. 16, and Nov. 18 at the company's training facility in Houston, Texas.
These non-commercial training sessions will communicate the basic principles, advantages, and benefits of fieldbus technology and segment design. Using practical examples, communication networks will be designed with Foundation fieldbus, with the design, configuration, and parameterization of a fieldbus segment demonstrated using a hands-on approach.
Each class will cover physical layer constraints, communication constraints, design verification and risk management, including process, startup, and maintenance constraints.
Classes run from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Registration cost is $350 per person, which includes materials and lunch. Attendees will receive a certificate for Professional Development Hours upon completion.
"Anyone who works in the field of process automation is constantly confronted with new technologies and developments that create new challenges, and these challenges also apply to topics that are well established such as fieldbus," says David Hohenstein, department manager for Hardware and Marketing. "Rapid development has taken place in these areas in recent years, and these changes and developments will continue to increase with globalization. With ongoing education and lifelong learning, process automation professionals can keep pace with these developments."
Foundation fieldbus technology is the world's leading digital protocol for process automation. It provides end users with the "Freedom to Choose" best-in-class, interoperable control products from their suppliers of choice, and the "Power to Integrate" control systems, subsystems and devices across the plant enterprise. The result is improved plant performance-and greater business results.
The company is also hosting process automation seminars at its Houston facility.
