Singapore, Singapore, 2009/08/07 - CIA2009, held alongside the Industrial Bus and Wireless Technology Conference, returns as Asia’s leading event for process engineering technology & process control, automation, instrumentation, analytical & laboratory technology and services.
Major growth sectors in region to gain from cost efficiencies, carbon footprint reduction, better environment management and security enhancement.
Industrial plant efficiency continues to be a fundamental concern for process plants in key sectors such as chemical processing, petrochemical and oil and gas refining and production. Margins for corporations are challenged by recessive economic pressures and the social responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint, prompting them to look towards deploying more environmentally-friendly practices. The Industrial Bus and Wireless Technology Conference, to be held for the first time from 3 – 4 December 2009 at Suntec Singapore, aims to address these challenges, to enable greater robustness, safety and dependability of plant operations.
These operational gains stem from the efficient design of plants for long-term operability based on industrial bus technology, an all-digital industrial network system for real-time distributed control, connecting microprocessors-based control and field devices bi-directionally. Bus deployment benefits can be seen throughout the processes of installation, maintenance and commissioning. The technology, together with the deployment of wireless networking, allows for remote access to status and diagnostic information, enables predictive maintenance strategies via continuous condition monitoring and sees major cost savings in reduced point-to-point wiring and associated equipment.
The Industrial Bus and Wireless Technology Conference is designed by industry leaders for industry professionals from multiple levels within plant design and operations. The conference will address critical underlying challenges on interoperability and the increasing reliability of wireless architecture. Industry and technology experts will give detailed perspectives into case studies of various bus and wireless technology implementations.
The two-day conference comprises two tracks which will run in parallel - Plant Operations & Maintenance and Control Systems & Design. The technical panel, responsible for shaping the conference programme and ensuring that the topics are the most relevant and comprehensive, comprises top executives from the major industry bodies, technology providers and technology users.
