2018 will be a year to focus on expanding FieldComm Group technologies breadth of adoption from our core digital technologies, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, WirelessHART and HART-IP, to the new kid on the block – FDI. The torrid pace of digitalization in the process industry is sure to continue. With it, the need for products that conform to standards, simplified infrastructure, user training, and software information models understood by field devices, control systems, and cloud service grows.
The process industries look to extract more and more value out of an ever more competitive climate and these standards can make the difference. 2018, and beyond, will need to send a strong message of the value of a motivated and well-trained work force capable of utilizing intelligent systems to gain the competitive edge. Users must connect smart instrumentation to robust systems using leading industry protocols so that they can integrate that data in a consistent human-readable way to make their plant smarter, more efficient and more profitable.
For these reasons, we’re excited to release the following promotion materials for 2018:
