FDT Group to Sponsor ISA Saudi Arabia December 2013 Automation Conference

Updates to FDT Technology to be Featured During Event
Jodoigne, Belgium, 28 October 2013

fdt-group

The FDT Group is pleased to announce its support of the forthcoming ISA Automation Conference and Exhibition – Europe, Middle East and Africa 2013, to be held at the Sheraton Dammam Hotel & Towers, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 8-12 December, 2013. In addition to being an official supporter of the conference and exhibition, the FDT Group and member companies will be active participants throughout the event.

Organized by the Saudi Arabia Section of ISA (International Society of Automation) and DMS Global, the global marketing specialist for the energy sector, the ISA Automation Conference and Exhibition will be dedicated to process automation with the theme ‘Experience the Future’. ISA Automation 2013 will include a comprehensive technical conference program, product exhibition, technical training sessions and workshops, and technology panel discussions throughout the five day event.

Industry sponsors of the event include Saudi Aramco (titanium host sponsor), ABB (diamond sponsor), and Al Abdulkarim, Auma, Azbil, Emerson Process Management, Invensys, SKF and Yokogawa (gold sponsors).

The FDT Group presentation during the conference will highlight how the FDT® standard has seen massive market adoption with more than 10 million FDT enabled devices shipped and tens of thousands of FDT host system installations. Products certified to the FDT standard have risen above the 5,500 mark and more than 16 of the most popular process and factory automation networks are supported by the standard with more tethered and wireless network standards on the way.

In the midst of this ubiquitous adoption, the FDT Group membership pressed forward with a major update to the FDT standard known as FDT2. While the new standard is fully backward compatible with the FDT installed base, it brings many new features, capabilities, and performance improvements. This session will highlight the key benefits of the FDT2 standard from an end user perspective – such as advanced diagnostics, enhanced logging, and remote clients. The presentation will conclude by showing how an existing FDT user can easily migrate to the FDT2 standard at a pace that suits the needs and timeline of the plant.

The FDT Group has enjoyed a long time relationship with the professionals in the ISA organization around the world. "We are pleased to be part of the Saudi Arabia ISA conference," states Glenn Schulz, Managing Director of the FDT Group. "The Saudi Arabia market is clearly a sweet spot for the companies that employ the FDT open standard. Our long term support of all process related networks has enabled end users to work more efficiently and to minimize downtime in the field. We are anxious to gather additional input to future capabilities of the FDT standard as we meet with the end users in this important marketplace."

As Head of ISA Saudi Arabia Section and ISA Automation 2013 Conference Chairman, Luay H. Al-Awami, Instrumentation Consultant at Saudi Aramco, commented, “The technical conference programme promises to be outstanding – we have been overwhelmed by submissions from industry leaders and subject matter experts. The selected papers explore the latest products, innovations and technologies and offer a unique opportunity for all participants to learn and discover.”

Al-Awami continued, “The conference will include several training sessions and workshops as a key aspect to enable automation engineers to get better exposure and some real hands-on experience with the products and technologies that they have installed or are considering for their applications – practical tutorials with technology experts are one of the most valuable ways to learn.”

ISA Automation 2013 is the first event of its kind in the region but Mohammed Loch, President & CEO – DMS Global, is confident that it will become a cornerstone event in the Middle East Process Automation calendar. “There are many mega energy events in the Middle East.  However, the ISA Automation Europe, Middle East, Africa Conference & Exhibition 2013 is the first major event to be dedicated to the Automation Sector. We are thrilled to have the official support of the FDT as it shows that it is not just an ISA event but a platform for the whole industry.”
