AUSTIN, Tex. — End users around the world are invited to enter their plant for recognition in the 9th Annual HART Plant of the Year Awards Program.
Presented annually by the HART Communication Foundation, the HART Plant of the Year is the only international award presented to end user companies in the process automation industry to recognize the exceptional application of HART technology. Nominations are encouraged from all world areas and will be accepted through July 15, 2010.
“We are seeking the plant that has taken the capabilities of their HART instruments beyond configuration and calibration,” says HART Communication Foundation Executive Director Ron Helson. “Or, the plant that is using real-time diagnostics and process variables in HART-enabled devices integrated with control, information, asset management, or safety systems.”
Selection of the HART Plant of the Year is based on a plant’s use of HART technology, not on the size of the installation. Nominations are welcomed from end users or suppliers. Nomination forms and details are available at www.hartcomm.org.
