We reported last month that the HART® Communication Foundation and its member companies is celebrating 20 years serving the process automation industry during 2013. To commemorate this milestone, the Foundation (HCF) is hosting special End User Events in Europe, North America and Asia throughout 2013. The first of these free educational events is being held on Tuesday, 9 April in conjunction with Hannover Messe 2013 (8-12 April, Hannover, Germany).
“This 20th Anniversary event, HART: Benefits Today and Into the Future, provides an opportunity for end users to learn more about the benefits and value of using the full capabilities of the HART Protocol, HART applications, products, and the future of this field-proven technology,” says Ron Helson, Foundation Executive Director. “We invite HART users attending Hannover Messe to add this special event to their show calendar.”
The HART Communication Foundation 20th Anniversary User Event will be held in the Field Communication Lounge (Hall 9, Stand D76) at Hannover Messe on Tuesday, 9 April, 16:30-20:30.
