Invensys kicked off a year-long celebration to mark the 30th anniversary of its Triconex safety and critical control products brand.

More than 13,000 Triconex controllers are in use today in safety and critical control applications worldwide, and they have collectively amassed more than 600 million hours of safe operation, according to Invensys.

invensys0715The Triconex brand was born in 1983 when Jon Wimer gathered a team of engineers, developers and professionals to build a safety system. In 1994 Triconex was acquired by Siebe plc of the United Kingdom. In 1999, Siebe and British Tire and Rubber, another British engineering firm, merged to form Invensys plc.

Invensys has planned several special events in the coming year to mark the anniversary of its Triconex brand, including a celebration at the company’s Triconex and Foxboro Client Conference, as well as regional celebrations across the globe at various Invensys locations.

The company’s Triconex and Foxboro Client Conference will take place at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio, Texas, Sept. 10 through Sept. 13. It will feature tracks devoted to users of the company’s Triconex safety systems, including presentations, hands-on demonstrations, workshops and training classes. Attendees will receive updates on safety, security and turbomachinery standards, as well as in-depth information about how these updates impact the way they maintain and operate safety systems.
