Get a closer look at IEC 61499 and Universal Automation at Canadian Process Equipment & Control News’ upcoming Canadian Process & Automation Show taking place in Regina on September 18.

Here is a brief synopsis from presenter Sheldon Reiss, Business Development, EcoStruxure Automation Expert, Schneider Electric.

Synopsis

Years ago, you wrote, tested, and commissioned your logic. It’s been working for years with few modifications, but now you’re upgrading hardware and forced to re-write it. This is only one example where IEC 61499 and Universal Automation are changing the automation industry.

This standard is setting the stage for a more open automation environment, where the industry revolutions we hear about, but aren’t prepared for, become commonplace. This includes automatic communication setup, logic that is easily moved between hardware, having automation hardware directly query IT devices… and the list goes on.

Please join me as we delve into IEC 61499 and Universal Automation to discover what it can do for us today.
