What’s New with FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Digital Field Devices

Join us in September as we learn from Larry O’Brien – Fieldbus Foundationwho will discuss What’s New with FOUNDATION Fieldbus and Digital Field Devices.

Larry O’Brien joined the Fieldbus Foundation as Global Marketing Manager in April of 2011.  Prior to his job at the Foundation, Larry was Research Director for Process Automation at ARC Advisory Group, where he began work in 1993.  As an industry analyst and market researcher, Larry covered the topics of process fieldbus, distributed control systems, process safety, the automation services business, and intelligent field instruments.  Larry has authored or co-authored numerous market forecast reports, strategic level advisory reports, and white papers for ARC and its clients, including all the major process automation suppliers.  Larry has a BA from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

Larry will be providing an overview of the recent updates and happenings at Fieldbus Foundation in our Technical meeting, but please consider also attending the FOUNDATION Fieldbus Seminar – Sept. 18 – Chicago, IL.  The end user seminar is geared toward taking the mystery out of Foundation fieldbus and making end users and systems integrators realize the true lifecycle benefits of the technology.

Also, please consider FOUNDATION Fieldbus Sales Force Training – Sept. 19 – Chicago, IL.  The sales force training seminar contains content specifically developed for salespeople that want to increase their knowledge about Foundation fieldbus and increase their chances of selling a successful fieldbus project.

We hope you find both the technical meeting and FOUNDATION Fieldbus Seminars informative and educational.
