  • Updating and Migrating Legacy Systems

    Systems upgrades can be painful and costly. Invensys knows this, so it has smart guys like Graham Bennett, senior principal migration consultant, whose job is to help users of competitive systems to migrate to Invensys as painlessly as possible. Similarly, he helps existing Invensys customers move forward while keeping as much of their asset investments as possible. Filmed at the 2013 Foxboro & Triconex Global Client Conference in San Antonio, Texas, Bennett demonstrates different ways he handles migration with old or competitive equipment where there's no reengineering or intellectual property changes required.

  • The Foxboro Evo Maintenance Response Center

    Instruments -- as well as the technicians who work with them -- are foundational to the Invensys "enlightened plant" vision. In this video booth tour from the 2013 Invensys Foxboro & Triconex Client Conference, Scott Hill and Rogier van Dijk demonstrate the capabilities of the company's Foxboro Evo Maintenance Response Center, including "plain text" device error messages designed to make technicians far more productive in their routine troubleshooting tasks. Watch the video.

  • Triconex Integrated Control & Safety

    Safety is your number one priority. Unexpected risk to your operation is always just around the corner -- whether it be cyber security breaches, natural disasters, or disruptions to safe and smooth production. You need a tried and true platform you can trust to keep your plant running and intelligent tools to help you quickly remedy any situation, or better yet, help you prevent an incident before it even happens.In this video, Steve Elliott, director of product management for the Triconex brand discusses the benefits of having an integrated control and safety system. This video was filmed at the 2013 Foxboro and Triconex Global Client Conference in San Antonio, TX.

  • Using FPGAs to Accelerate Vision Applications

    Embedded vision is everywhere around us. It's in our phones, cars, medical devices, grocery stores, gaming systems, factories and more. At the rate vision is being added to embedded systems, chances are you will need to have some knowledge of vision within the next few years. There are an enormous amount of applications that can benefit from adding vision because it enables machines or products to know more about their physical surroundings and how to interact with them. Embedded vision can also enhance safety by detecting danger and preventing accidents, boosting efficiency by improving the throughput and quality of manufacturing, simplifying usability, and fueling innovation by enabling designers to do things previously thought impossible. This video will explain how FPGAs can be used to accelerate the incorporation and use of embedded vision applications in your machines.

  • Benefits of Having Control in the Field

    In this video, Chuck Carter with Lee College shows off the benefits of having Control in the Field. He demonstrates how control is maintained in the system despite a complete loss of the host system. Adjustments are made to demonstrate control is still being maintained in the system. He also talks about how control within a device itself has been shown to improve set point response for tighter control. Tighter control means higher quality product and ultimately dollars to an end user.
