Utilities & energy monitoring
Utilities measurement is an essential part of every manufacturing
plant in order to maintain efficiency and reduce overheads. With the
increased demand for efficiency from carbon emissions legislation, the
need to measure and manage utilities is greater than ever before.
As a leading supplier of process automation solutions,
PROFIBUS UK Senior member company Endress+Hauser works closely with the utilities sector to provide
complete energy management solutions from initial measurement right
through to data collection and analysis. Whether it's electricity and
compressed air in the compressor house, steam flow and gas in the
boiler room or water usage throughout the plant, Endress+Hauser offers
the ideal solution.
Endress+Hauser offers a wide range of utility metering devices to
provide the 'best fit' for any application. Choose from vortex,
differential pressure (DP), thermal, Coriolis, electromagnetic,
ultrasonic flowmeters and a variety of electricity meters. Data
collection is carried out via our Fieldgate gateways which provide time
and date stamped energy interval data collection via wireless or wired
solutions onto an Ethernet network.

Having difficulty getting PROFINEWS UK Edition?
Did your copy get "bounced" and you've had to find some other way to read it?
Sometimes company email systems just don't like newsletters such as this. They "bounce" them thinking they are spam and it can be very difficult to get them to treat them otherwise.
One way round this is If you would like to receive future newsletters like this register again using a different email address. If you don't currently have an alternative email address, it can be very easy
to rectify and in many cases, entirely free of charge. For example, Google
offers a free service called Google Mail which you can sign up for at http://sn.im/s8e62
The advantage of an email
service such as this is that you can access your emails on the web from almost anywhere and/or have
them forwarded to wherever you wish. Once you have another email address then simply sign up again at http://sn.im/profinewsuk-signup
If you want to persist with your company's Email Administrator to ensure that messages
from email@example.com can be received, they

|Training places available October/November
There are still a few places available on the following scheduled courses at MMU:
PROFIBUS Product Development Course -
20 October 2009
A one-day course for product manufacturers and engineering
companies who want to develop a PROFIBUS product. If you are a manufacturer of
drives, transmitters, or intelligent valve actuators, you need to implement the
latest technology in your products. PROFIBUS technology is the wayforward. This
one-day course will give you an overview of the technology plus details of the
communication protocol, tools and methods to get you started correctly on
development of your own PROFIBUS products. More info
PROFIBUS Installer Course - 3rd November
An essential course for electrical
engineers and technicians needing to upgrade their skills to include fieldbus
installation. This one-day, hands-on course teaches the design, installation
and testing of complete PROFIBUS networks including DP, PA and optical fibre
technology. Covering bus layout and termination, grounding rules and practices,
the course will teach delegates how to avoid common, but potentially expensive,
installation problems. The course is essential preparation to the Certified Engineer and Commissioning and Maintenance courses. More info
Commissioning & Maintenance Course
- 4th November
A new one-day course covering the practical
techniques of faultfinding on "operational" PROFIBUS networks. Techniques taught on the course include the use of a modern PROFIBUS
analyser and Class-II master (engineering tool) to diagnose network faults,
device faults and I/O problems. Students also learn how to use a soft digital
storage oscilloscope in conjunction with these tools to diagnose and accurately
locate cable, connection and device faults. More info
PROFIBUS Engineer - 24-27 November
For engineers wishing to build their
careers around PROFIBUS in either industrial or process automation, companies
wanting to benchmark their technical staff or consultants seeking a recognised
professional qualification in industrial and process networking, this is the ideal opportunity to train for an internationally-recognised qualification as a Certified PROFIBUS
Engineer. More info
Certified PROFINET Engineer Course -
course provides a detailed technical knowledge of the PROFINET technology and
the advantages it offers your automation and production processes.At
the end of the training there will be a theory exam. Participants who pass get
the title Certified PROFINET Engineer and are awarded an official certificate.
Successful participants will have the confidence to evaluate PROFINET as a
solution for their automation requirements and be able to design a proper
application. More info
Registration form for all the above courses or call Ann on 00 44 207 193 8018
|Free seminars on Process and Factory Automation!
There are also one or two places on our free seminars for Process and Factory Automation:
Aspects of PROFIBUS & PROFINET in Factory Automation - Manchester 27 October
This seminar addresses
the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications
technologies in automated manufacturing and advanced engineering applications.
Covering the use of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in key application areas such as
packaging, printing, electrical and electronics assembly, robotics, automotive
engineering, drives, mechanical handling and logistics, control systems and
energy management, it focuses on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS and
PROFINET in factory automation applications from system design and safety
considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding. Supported by live
demonstrations of actual tools used in configuration and maintenance, the
programme will be of great value to Designers, Production Engineers and System
Engineers involved in design, operation and maintenance of modern automated
factories and machinery. Registration form
Practical Aspects of PROFIBUS PA in
Process - Scotland
29 October 2009
This seminar addresses
the key practical issues arising from the use of digital fieldbus
communications technologies in process and hybrid industries. Covering the use
of PROFIBUS PA in key application areas such as Pulp & Paper, Chemical,
Utilities, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas today, it focuses on the practical
aspects of using PROFIBUS in process industry applications from system design
and hazardous area considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding.
Supported by live demonstrations of actual tools used in calibration and
maintenance, the programme will be of great value to Instrument
Technicians/Engineers, C&I Engineers and System Engineers involved in
design, operation and maintenance of modern process plant. Registration form
Or call Ann on 00 44 207 193 8018
|Conference Update - Call for Suggestions
What subjects do you want us to cover?
we're still in the process of putting the programme together, there's
still a chance to influence the content! We'd like to know what
subjects you'd like addressed. Energy efficiency? Water saving? These
are both topical subjects and we are already aware of several papers
that will address these issues. But what else would you like discussed?
Please let the Papers Committee have your suggestions by email ASAP. Thanks.
