The International Society of Automation (ISA) and its Premier Strategic Partner for calibration, Beamex, will co-host a free web seminar on 31 July 2014 that will discuss the purpose and most appropriate methods for configuring and calibrating smart instruments.

The web seminar, which will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, will feature two instrumentation experts: Roy Tomalino, Professional Services Engineer at Beamex, and Thomas Royce, Global Customer Support & E-learning Specialist at PR Electronics.

The vast majority of delivered instruments today are smart instruments. These smart instruments bring new challenges to the calibration and configuration processes. But what are these smart instruments and what is the best way to configure and calibrate them?

Attendees of the webinar can expect to learn about the unique aspects of smart instruments and view a live demonstration of configuring and calibrating both pressure and temperature smart instruments.

“We have started an automation paradigm shift, with smart instruments quickly becoming a daily norm. Every technician, experienced or new to the field, needs to understand these concepts to effectively and efficiently manage their calibration program," explains Greg Sumners, President of Beamex, Inc.
Jennifer Infantino, ISA’s Manager of Marketing, Communications and Corporate Partnerships, says that because smart instruments play an increasingly important role in automation and modern industrial manufacturing, it’s essential that automation professionals learn to properly configure and calibrate them.

“By collaborating with Beamex to conduct this free webinar, we can ensure that our members, customers and the automation community as a whole receive expert guidance and recommendations on the most effective use of these advanced devices,” Infantino says.
