According to Ludewig, the event´s primary focus was publicizing the SMAR process control solutions that employ the FF technology, and, in particular, the successful project for the SERBIAGAS company. “This application is one of the few in the world that combine so many features and benefits in a single system. It includes FF, HART, HSE, and Modbus, in addition to a complete integration of engineering, operation and diagnostic stations via assets management. This represents SMAR’s continued leadership in providing interoperable solutions based on open technologies like Foundation fieldbus”, he explains.
