August 20, 2014 - The FDT Group will be exhibiting at the upcoming Yokogawa Users Conference and Exhibition in North America, September 9-11, 2014 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, TX. The growth in industrial network standards, instrument configuration methodologies, and the relentless pursuit for operational excellence and increased plant reliability has accelerated the use of the FDT Technology on worldwide basis. This year the FDT Group will exhibit a technology demonstration that focuses on smart device integration solutions that are both protocol and supplier independent. With the magnitude and diversity of suppliers, products and communication protocols available on the market today, device integration and interoperability are key concerns in the user’s mind and FDT focuses and delivers the solution. In addition to the exhibit, the FDT Group will host a presentation on Standardization and Integration of FDI (Field Device Integration) into FDT (Field Device Technology) Standards on Wednesday, September 10th from 1:15 PM to 1:45 PM.
