Following the successful series of regional seminars in 2009, EPLAN, Phoenix Contact and Rittal will co-host a series of new events in 2010. These will give automation engineers, process design engineers, and panel and system builders an insight into how to avoid pitfalls in system design and construction by using a combination of integrated intelligent software and hands-on system build techniques. The benefits of time and cost reduction will be fundamental to the event and will lead to increased profitability.

EPLAN Software and Service specialise in computer aided engineering (CAE) software for the design of electrical control and automation systems, providing fast and error-free designs of electrical schematics with automatic cross-references and wiring. Phoenix Contact is a global developer and manufacturer of electronic interface and industrial automation technologies. Rittal will show its new enclosure platform approach to system building, which offers simplicity and flexibility by utilising common internal parts and accessories.

Each day starts with a live demonstration of the problems encountered due to poor system design, then move through the design, calculation and planning process. There then follows a live demonstration of marking systems and time-saving terminal wiring and DIN rail assembly. The conclusion is a live demonstration of how the problems highlighted at the start have been eliminated by using intelligent design and calculation.

Attending one of the events can help increase attendees' competitiveness by reducing installation time and minimising errors. Places are limited, so book early to ensure you get a place on the seminar hat is most convenient for you.

Events are to be held in May/June 2010 as follows:

  • Brentwood - 12 May
  • Bristol - 13 May
  • Washington - 26 May
  • Motherwell - 27 May
  • Rotherham - 2 June
