System Automation Fundamentals – A Practical Training Seminar
10–13 September 2018 • Huntsville, AL, USA
About the Program
Few individuals are knowledgeable about the complete L0, L1 and L2 systems available today for various rolling mill types. Current sensor and control technologies coupled with modern communication architecture allow implementation of functionality without regard for the traditional level designations. Effective system maintenance typically requires system-wide knowledge and may cross organizational boundaries. This conference will provide an overview of what is available today, along with details of how individual mills may be configured. This knowledge will be useful for upgrading existing mills as well as new installations.
The intent of this conference is to educate and inform on the various components and systems available, making organizational discussions less stressful and implementation more seamless. The agenda is a single track with time reserved for small group discussions on specific topics of interest.
Who Should Attend
These sessions will benefit newcomers and experienced individuals alike who buy or maintain L0–L2 electrical equipment and systems on any mill type.
