Richard J. Timoney Delivers Keynote Speech at DCS18, Hungary, Oct 24-26, 2012

dcs16_hotel_webThe Distributed Control Systems 18th Meeting (DCS18) took place on 24-26 October 2012 at Hotel Palota, Miskolc-Lillafüred, Hungary.

As part of the opening plenary session on Wed Oct 24, Richard J. Timoney, President and CEO - Fieldbus Foundation, delivered a keynote presentation to introduce Foundation for Remote Operations Management (F-ROM) - an integrated engineering platform (open, standards-based and vendor-neutral) to replace complex proprietary and customised SCADA.

The main topics covered by the three day programme included new products, solutions and technologies in the process industry; DCS communication, security, operation; DCS applications; and industrial communication and data management. Speakers included end users, industry experts and automation equipment suppliers.

The F-ROM initiative provides a unified digital infrastructure for asset management in a wide range of remote applications. It enables fieldbus connectivity to remote I/O, wired HART®, and the leading industrial wireless protocols WirelessHART® and ISA100.11a. The solution allows users to seamlessly combine devices on all of these networks within the Foundation fieldbus infrastructure to manage device data and information in a unified infrastructure specifically built for the requirements of remote applications - from oil and gas field applications to water treatment facilities, offshore platforms, and even OEM skid-mounted equipment.

In addition to the speaker programme, attendees were also able to visit the exhibition and poster presentations and participate in several social events.
