We invite you “Caspian Oil & Gas 2018” exhibition on 29-31th of May and 1st of June in Baku Expo Center which our company attends. Join us at exhibition to see our company’s stend and modern automation solution, as well new products of our partners (Rockwell Automation, Endress Hauser). Main target of our attendance and presentations are to give more information about modern technology: “Industry 4.0”, “Internet of Things” and such kind of innovation.

Of the technology trends that I have observed in recent years, few developments have been more exciting than Industry 4.0 for Process Automation. Having the opportunity to attend several events and talk with professionals throughout the industry, it’s clear that Industry 4.0 concepts and technology are being applied to process automation. At the 2017 Hannover Fair, for instance, I was fortunate enough to meet with Michael Ziesemer, an executive with Endress+Hauser and president of ZVEI, to discuss the impact of Industry 4.0 for process industries. This is not the first discussion I have had with Ziesemer, as I have found through many discussions with the engineering industry veteran, that his opinions and observations are always insightful.
The process control and automation businesses of the Top 50 global and North American suppliers still face some challenging headwinds, and 2016 was a tough year. Traditional automation suppliers are betting on big transformations into the world of the Internet of Things (IoT)—or to the Industrial IoT (IIoT) in the case of automation—to rejuvenate their businesses. ARC Advisory Group also sees an increasing focus on cybersecurity as the critical infrastructure and manufacturing sectors continue to experience high profile cyberattacks.
The Automation Fair® event is the ideal opportunity to discover how The Connected Enterprise can help you achieve faster time to market, optimize your assets and lower your total cost of ownership. Visit us Nov. 15-16 in Houston, Texas, and participate in industry forums, hands-on labs and technical sessions. Join us for the Process Solutions User Group Nov. 13-14. Learn best practices and find solutions to process application challenges
Endress+Hauser accompanies customers on the path to digitalization
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has huge potential: predictive maintenance, asset information management and device configuration are just some examples of the opportunities digitalization has in store for companies. Endress+Hauser is driving IIoT forward through innovative products and solutions as well as by working with partners. This dedication has been proven twice – winning the Digital Champion Award and presenting a new digital platform at the German Digital Summit.
The advantages of digitalization in the process industry can already be seen clearly. Increased networking opens up new opportunities in process optimization and increases plant efficiency. Endress+Hauser is therefore constantly increasing its offer of products, solutions and services in order to increase customers’ productivity and system availability while expanding competitiveness.
Digital Champion 2017
With Memosens, Endress+Hauser introduced a pioneering sensor technology for liquid analysis in various industries such as chemical, power & energy, food & beverage and water & wastewater over 10 years ago. Memosens sensors measure the pH-value in liquids, for example, and transform it into a digital signal while still in the sensor. The data is then passed on via a contactless system and provides extremely accurate, reproducible and reliable measurement results.
Furthermore, the technology combines high process and data security with simple handling: it can withstand corrosion and moisture, can be calibrated in the laboratory and enables predictive maintenance.
Memosens was presented with the Digital Champion Award in the category Digital Products and Services in June 2017. The award is a joint initiative of the German telecommunications provider Telekom and the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche, which was set up in 2016 with the aim of awarding prizes to significant projects by medium-sized companies.
Endress+Hauser at the Digital Summit
Endress+Hauser also demonstrates its commitment through its work with partners: the company created a platform through which data can be exchanged together with BASF, SAP, Pepperl+Fuchs and SAMSON. This was presented for the first time at the Digital Summit of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Technology. The event took place in June 2017 in the metropolitan Rhine-Neckar region and saw over 1000 participants, including the German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel.
The platform enables new forms of data-based cooperation. The effectiveness and efficiency in chemical production can be increased significantly, allowing new business models to be created. The ability to gather data on the condition of devices and components and exchanging this data with all those involved with the process helps determine maintenance requirements, plan maintenance work more efficiently and reduce plant shutdowns.
Subsidiary for IIoT activities
Endress+Hauser has combined its activities for IIoT in a subsidiary in Freiburg, Germany, in order to meet the high pressures of digitalization. Here, specialists work exclusively on products, solutions and services for digitalized plants. These include customized cloud solutions, for example, which utilize specific data from production processes and increase efficiency, as well as services for the plant’s entire life cycle.
Cover Story: While the oil and gas sector is still male-dominated, engineering-minded associations are working to motivate more women to work in the field.
While technology and engineering constantly evolve, the gender balance is an issue that still needs to be addressed by those who work in the sector. Throughout history, the engineering industry has traditionally underplayed its female workforce. For example, how many people could name the famous male machinist and engineer who industrialized car production in 1920s America (Henry Ford), compared to the female engineer—and movie star—behind a remote-controlled communications system for the U.S military during World War II which now serves as a basis for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi network connections (Hedy Lamarr).
The 30th annual Control Engineering Engineers’ Choice Awards shines a light on 28 categories of control, instrumentation, and automation products, revealing the best of those introduced in 2016 as chosen by you, Control Engineering’s print and digital audience. Review the winners and honorable mentions here to see if their innovative solutions can help you solve one of your most pressing problems.
Also, join us in congratulating these technological innovators. Let them know you learned about their solutions in Control Engineering, and tell them what problems you need solutions for next. Their continuous improvement ensures that manufacturers, machine builders, and automation system integrators can achieve the levels of agility, efficiency, and effectiveness necessary to compete—and win—in today’s global economy.
More than 100 finalists from 63 companies were listed on ballots for evaluation. Automation professionals from Control Engineering’s subscriber lists—all of whom are responsible for or influence technology purchases, or have hands-on day-to-day interaction with the technologies in each category—then voted to identify the products they felt were the most exceptional based on technological advancement, service to the industry, and market impact. The result is a short list of Engineers’ Choice Awards winners and honorable mentions in 28 categories. A total of 1 grand winner, 28 winners, and 28 honorable mentions were named for 2017.
