Foundation Fieldbus (FF) will provide a multi-vendor presentation on fieldbus systems at the Madejski Stadium on the 9th of April at a special workshop event aimed at EPC contractors in the Reading, UK area. The full programme will be chaired by Mike O’Neill of MooreHawke, who will also be involved in a full presentation discussing “Process Integrity and Control in the Field” (including status and measurement validation, fault tolerance, etc). Bill Gibbons of Yokogawa will discuss “Open Scaleable Integration” (including Hazardous Areas, high power trunk, multi-variable measurements, device testing, DDs and function blocks), followed by Travis Hesketh from Emerson, discussing Business Intelligence (including cost benefits, project savings and predictive maintenance). The “Practical implementation of FF loops using devices from multiple vendors” is the subject of a discussion led by Tony Alexander of Honeywell, illustrated by the practical demonstrations that will be available throughout the day, of working, multiple-vendor hardware connected to the various host systems. Break-out sessions will allow a hands-on examination of these aspects of the presentation content, and the speakers will be available for further discussions through the lunch and coffee breaks.
