The HART Communication Foundation has extended the deadline to receive nominations for the 2011 HART Plant of the Year Award to Aug. 15. End users and manufacturers can nominate their plant or a customer's plant for recognition.
The HART Plant of the Year is an international award presented to end-user companies in the process automation industry to recognize the exceptional application of HART Communication.
HART Communication is seeking a plant that has "taken the capabilities of HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration or is using real-time diagnostics and process variables in HART-enabled devices integrated with control, information, asset management or safety systems," says Ron Helson, HART Communication Foundation executive director.
The award is based on a plant's use of HART Communication rather than the size of the installation, Helson says.
