Yokogawa user conference includes free technology innovation fair

11/27/2006


The seventh annual Yokogawa User Group Meeting, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, in Houston, includes a free R&D Technology Innovation Fair by Yokogawa Corporation of America . Yokogawa Electric Corp. president and CEO, Isao Uchida, keynote speaker, offers attendees 'a glimpse into the heart of Yokogawa R&D developments.' Free portions include keynote and roadmap sessions, training in analyzers, networking, and fieldbus, the innovation fair, and related hospitality. User conference workshops are for paid users. Industries covered include chemical, pharmaceutical, power, refinery, petrochemical, and upstream oil and gas. Technologies covered include analyzers, flowmeters, transmitters, controllers, recorders, data acquisition products, meters, instruments, distributed control systems, and related hardware and software.

The event intends to showcase industrial automation as well as a diversity of strengths in other areas, says David Johnson, president and COO of Yokogawa Corp. of America, including 'quantum leaps in our instruments and systems innovations.' In Tokyo, last year, the company shared innovations with more than 7,000 visitors during its 90th anniversary celebration. The User Group Conference has technical workshops presented by peers and Yokogawa experts, who will share problem-solving approaches on how to deliver measurable results and discuss practical applications of existing and new technologies.

User topics include asset excellence (use of diagnostics within intelligent fieldbus networks and tools to manage those devices), lifecycle excellence (migration issues and experiences, best practices in hardware and software upgrades and migration to fieldbus with existing instrumentation), production excellence (measurement tools, unique system implementations, productivity software, security in control systems, and alarm management practices in human-machine interface software), safety excellence (international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511), and the new integrated process control system architectures on which emergency shutdown (ESD), fire and gas (F&G), or boiler management (BMS) applications are applied.

Yokogawa Corp. of America, headquartered in Newnan, GA, is the North American unit of $4 billion Yokogawa Electric Corp., said to be a global leader in the manufacture and supply of instrumentation, process control, and automation.
