Schneider Electric hosts its annual automation conference at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel beginning Monday, May 23. The four-day conference includes more than 75 user-driven industry sessions, technical application workshops and accredited training courses. Each session is designed for customers, partners and OEMs to share their expertise across the company’s control solutions, including its Foxboro, Modicon and PlantStruxure PES process automation systems, along with its telemetry and remote SCADA offerings and Triconex safety systems.

"By attending, not only will plant personnel across many industries learn to think differently about how to connect and apply their existing process automation systems, solutions and devices, they’ll learn how to apply the power of real-time control to industrial variables, such as profitability, safety, environment, reliability and security, to drive higher levels of business performance,” says Lynda Newell, vice president of marketing for the company’s Process Automation business.

The keynote address will be presented by Sandy Vasser, senior advisor for instrumentation and electrical for ExxonMobil Production Company, who will discuss challenges within the automation industry and the need to create better business efficiencies through innovative technologies. Technology tracks range from control and automation solutions to technology trends, including control and safety upgrade strategies, taking advantage of virtualization, improving operator performance, implementing projects within budget and schedule, cybersecurity essentials and complying with safety and security standards. Safety systems customers will receive updates on safety, security and turbomachinery standards, as well as in-depth information about how the updates impact the way safety and security work hand-in-hand.
