#Achema Field communications

As at the HannoverMeße earlier this year, the HART® Communication Foundation joins the FDT Group, Fieldbus Foundation, PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) and OPC Foundation as co-sponsors of the Field Communication Lounge  exhibit at ACHEMA 2012  in Frankfurt (D) this year. Inside the Lounge, these field communication organizations will exhibit their individual process automation communication technologies in a common display area.

The HART multi-vendor exhibit in the Lounge includes two large demonstration displays—Get Connected and WirelessHART®—to educate users on the benefits of using HART-enabled devices to remain competitive in today’s challenging economic environment.

The Get Connected display demonstrates HART technology and shows what HART information is available including diagnostics and troubleshooting. The WirelessHART display demonstrates how the set-up of a WirelessHART device is basically identical to that of a wired HART device and includes the WirelessHART adapter and the WirelessHART gateway.

The Field Communication Lounge is a cooperative exhibit where users can learn about and experience key technologies for process automation—their advantages, applications, integration and how they work together. The Lounge also features product and integration solution displays from leading global suppliers where experts will be available to discuss a wide range of technology solutions that enable improved asset management, lower operating costs and reduced plant downtime.

The idea behind the Field Communication Lounge is to create a single exhibit area for visitors to see and compare the latest in field communication technologies and to learn how the technologies are used to deliver powerful results that may quickly improve a company’s profitability. The Lounge’s combined exhibit concept will help users’ more easily understand how to integrate field communication technologies at their own facilities.
