The FDT Group, Fieldbus Foundation, HART Communication Foundation, PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) and the OPC Foundation, the newest participant, announce plans to co-sponsor the second annual Field Communication Lounge exhibit at two of the world’s largest automation trade shows, Hannover Messe (23-27 April, Hannover, Germany) and ACHEMA 2012 (18-22 June, Frankfurt, Germany). Inside the Lounge, these organizations will exhibit their individual process and factory automation communication technologies in a common display area. The Lounge also features a presentation forum in which industry experts present a series of 30-minute technical and educational sessions covering a wide range of field communication and integration technology topics that enable improved asset management, lower operating cost and reduced plant downtime.
The idea behind the Field Communication Lounge is to create a single exhibit area for visitors to learn about and experience the latest in field communication technologies and discuss how they are used to deliver powerful results that may quickly improve a company’s profitability. The Lounge’s combined exhibit concept better aligns with the way users often integrate field communication technologies at their own facilities. Fair visitors will have a central place to discuss and compare the leading automation communication protocols--their advantages, applications, integration and how they can work together.
The Field Communication Lounge provides a unique opportunity for visitors to get a first-hand look at the solutions offered by their member companies. Major automation companies will have practical demonstrations of their respective communication solutions including intelligent field devices, communication / configuration solutions, control / asset management applications, wireless technology, and protocol integration products. All of the companies provide the products / services that truly demonstrate the value proposition and benefits of real solutions, and we guarantee that visitors to the Field Communication Lounge will not be disappointed when they visit the booth.
The Field Communication Lounge is located in Hall 9 – Stand D05 at the Hannover Messe and Mezzanine Level 11.via B29 (Zwischengeschoss 11.via B29) at ACHEMA. For the forum presentation schedule and more information please visit www.fieldcommunicationlounge.com.
