The MSOE Fluid Power Industrial Consortium’s March 2, 2018 seminar will focus on devices that perform self-diagnostics and troubleshooting, and integrate easily with plug and play functionality.
Sensor industry marketing expert Roger Grace of Roger Grace Associates will deliver the keynote address, “Smart Sensors in Fluid Power: A Systems-Solutions Approach.”
“This is a unique opportunity for attendees to obtain up-to-the-minute information on smart sensors and their ever increasing and important role in fluid power. In addition to Roger Grace’s keynote overview presentation on smart sensors, leading fluid power industry speakers will address technologies and applications of smart sensors in fluid power which are smaller, more cost-effective and more robust,” said Tom Wanke, director of the FPIC. “Additionally, wireless sensors for measuring pressure, temperature, position, velocity, acceleration, flowrate, load, torque and system fluid condition, as well as sensors with internal self-calibration and diagnostic functionality, will also be discussed.”
For the first time, non-consortium members are invited to register for the seminar and experience first-hand the benefits of becoming an FPIC member. The half-day seminar, to be held at the Milwaukee Intercontinental Hotel, will also feature the following presentations:
Pressure and Temperature Sensing are Combined into a Single Package Using Smart Packaging, Calibration and Testing
Gary Winzeler, VP Sales & Marketing DunAn Sensing
IO-Link: A New Way to Communicate with Smart Sensors
Yuen Li, Product Marketing Manager, Industrial Networks, IFM Efector
The full agenda and registration form can be found online at www.msoe.edu/fpic/March
The seminar will also provide attendees with the opportunity to meet and network with diverse industry professionals who represent stakeholders in the fluid power industry and experience the benefits of becoming a consortium member. The non-consortium member registration fee is $125 which includes a light breakfast and lunch. Registration is free for current FPIC consortium members.
