Overview:
This webcast will provide an overview on
industrial communications and trends in this market segment. It will focus on
the most common connection between the process controller and the field
instrument/actuator, the 4-20mA loop, and more specifically on the HART
communication. A few examples of solutions for both the process controller and
the field instrument side of the communication will be given and discussed. The
typical design challenges will be addressed from a top level overall system
architecture right down to exploring details of components used in these
circuits.

Who should attend:
Engineers new to the field, as well as
those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on 4-20mA and HART
communication in industrial automation.
