Africa Automation Fair 2017: Extronics and Extech

Extronics and our sales partner Extech Safety Systems will be exhibiting and presenting at Africa Automation Fair 2017 on stand E19 & E22; you’re invited to join us!

Africa Automation Fair 2017Africa Automation Fair 2017, 6 – 8 June, is a focused networking platform for the Automation and Control Industry and works closely with industry associations including the IIG, SAIMC, and Technews Publishing.

Africa Automation Fair 2017 will host a high-level conference on Connected Industries in line with growing international focus on the ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the advanced, connected industries of the future.  As well as showcasing Pollution & Waste Technology Africa.

AAF also hosts three theatres where you can get the latest technology insights from experts – including our own John Hartley and Extech’s Gary Friend!

John will be speaking about Real Time Location Systems: Technology, Safety and Asset Management in Automation Theatre 3 at 12 noon on 7th June. He’ll identify the main technologies currently on the market and how they’re used, look at improvements in RTLS technologies over recent years, and how the growth of complementary technologies (such as Wi-Fi) has enabled RTLS deployments to demonstrate clear business improvements and higher ROI. John will use a real-life case study showing how RTLS technology can benefit customers.
Gary will be presenting a talk on Intrinsic Safety Applications in Automation Theatre 3 at 11am on 6th June. He will discuss how to fit surge protection (field device & control room) into IS loops, by looking at what the standards say and how to document the IS loop. This will be followed by how to run non-IS cables through IS trunking, and taking a look at the impact of gas group and zone on IS cable lengths. We will then move onto the impact and issues with using galvanic isolators in SIL loops, and finish by looking at the use of mobile devices in hazardous areas.
