Fieldbus Foundation logo
The Fieldbus Foundation has spread a world-wide network to allow end users and manufacturers to share experiences on this leading-edge process automation technology and to support further future-oriented developments. Since FieldConnex®, the fieldbus installation technology by Pepperl+Fuchs, is in operation in several major production plants all over the world, we take great pride to support the Fieldbus Foundation’s development and information policy at all levels.
A non-profit organization
Overview: The Fieldbus Foundation
The President and CEO, Richard Timoney, reports to the board of directors, which is composed of top managers of about ten major automation technology suppliers (picture 1, Fieldbus Foundation Organization). The Technical Director, David Glanzer, coordinates several world-wide integrated working groups dealing with future-oriented technologies such as High-Speed Ethernet (HSE), Electronic Device Description Language (EDDL) and Safety Instrumented Systems (FF-SIS), just to name a few. Engineers of the Pepperl+Fuchs R&D teams are actively involved in these working groups, thus emphasizing our mission to be at the leading edge of technology.
Focus on regions
Notable successes have been the Middle East End user Seminar Multaqua 2005 with more than 100 participants and the EPC events in London’s Imperial War Museum and the Netherlands.
