WirelessHART Seminars in Asia, Europe and USA

August 28, 2013 - A free one-day educational seminar for users on WirelessHART technology, the industry’s first international wireless communication standard, is being presented by the HART Communication Foundation in Asia, Europe and the U.S. during 2013. The vendor-neutral seminar, Using WirelessHART Technology in Process Industries, includes presentations by technology experts, live demonstrations of WirelessHART technology (IEC 62591; EN 62591), and firsthand experience of the technology’s interoperability, reliability, applications and ease of use. Seminar details and register at www.wirelesshart.hartcomm.org.
Seminars are scheduled in:

  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Wed. 11 September
  • Le Havre, France, Thur. 19 September (in French language)
  • Houston, Texas, USA, Mon. 23 and Tue. 24 September
  • Baytown, Texas, USA, Wed. 25 September
  • Mobile, Alabama, USA, Tue. 22 October
  • New Orleans, LA, USA, Thu. 24 October

Seminar topics include understanding and using WirelessHART technology in the plant environment, real-world examples of plant applications, and planning and implementing a WirelessHART project. The live demonstrations show the interoperability of WirelessHART gateways, devices and adapters from multiple manufacturers and demonstrate the simple process of a device joining the network.

Attendees in the U.S. earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs). There is no charge to attend the seminars but seating is limited and registration is required.

“Users who attend these free seminars discover for themselves the powerful benefits WirelessHART communication provides,” says Ted Masters, HART Communication Foundation President and CEO. “For instance, they will see devices from different manufacturers forming a robust mesh network relaying data from one device to the other and integrating that data with wired solutions.”

The seminars are sponsored by Foundation member companies: Cooper-Bussman, Emerson, Endress+Hauser, MACTek, Meriam Process, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, ProComSol and Siemens.

The HART Communication Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit membership organization that provides global support for the application of HART technology. The Foundation is the technology owner, standards setting body and central authority on the HART Communication Protocol, establishing and controlling new technology developments and enhancements that support the needs of the process automation industry. Founded in 1993, Foundation membership includes more than 285 companies worldwide. HART Communication is the leading technology for smart process instruments with more than 40 million devices installed worldwide.
