The Fieldbus Foundation UK Marketing Committee (FFUKMC) was pleased to welcome over 50 end users and engineering contractors to its most recent end user seminar. Following a similar format to previous successful roadshows held at other famous sporting venues across the UK, the seminar was held on September 25th at Wembley Stadium, London.
The seminar was specifically targeted to its audience of current and prospective end users, contractors, specifiers and implementers of Foundation fieldbus technology. With its theme "Fieldbus Comes Alive", the seminar revealed how Foundation fieldbus technology unifies process integrity, business intelligence, and open, scalable integration as part of a single, plant-wide solution. The presentations were followed by practical demonstrations about how to build, maintain and modify working fieldbus segments. Host systems were provided by ABB, Emerson Process Management and Honeywell, with devices from BEKA, Endress+Hauser, Smar, Krohne, Invensys, Topworx and VEGA, and physical layer interfaces from MTL, MooreHawke, Pepperl+Fuchs, Stahl and Turck.
Following a complimentary buffet lunch, attendees enjoyed a tour of the stadium's extensive facilities.
John S Hartley, Chairman of the Fieldbus Foundation UK Marketing Committee, was pleased to add Wembley Stadium to the list of UK seminar venues. "The UK marketing committee enjoys hosting its Fieldbus Foundation end user events at some of the major sports venues across the UK. To deliver such a clear and focused message for today's enterprise in such a unique venue is very satisfying and makes for a very beneficial and memorable day!"
