Smar at the Industrial Automation Congress in Guatemala

Friday, August 15, 2003



Smar’s presence last May at the ISA “II Congreso Centroamericano Instrumentación, Automatización y Control de Procesos Industriales”, an industrial automation congress, in Guatemala City was strong as products ranging from the FY301, PLC model LC700, System302 (based on Foundation Fieldbus technology) and DT301 were presented.

Having its Central American representative, Control y Automatización (a Costa Rican company managed by Rodolfo Piedra), as a partner in the congress, Smar’s main participation at the event consisted of two presentations that discussed the DT301, a new density transmitter, and Foundation Fieldbus Technology, which is new in the Central American market.

The outstanding performance continued as the company demonstrated System 302, which is considered to be the most updated control technology in the industry, with an online simulation of its broad capabilities. The engineers Adriano Teixeira and Gustavo Trovo represented Smar Brazil and made important contacts in the sugar & alcohol, pulp & paper industries and breweries.
