Fieldbus elects vice-chairman

18 May 2007

Following elections at Interkama 2007 in Hannover, Germany, The Fieldbus Foundation has elected Dr Graeme Philp as vice-chairman to its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Executive Advisory Council (EAC).

Philp is chief executive of the Luton, UK based, MTL Instruments Group. The company has been a member of the EMEA EAC since February 2005.

Dr Gunther Kegel, chairman of the EMEA EAC and member of the Fieldbus Foundation board of directors, was pleased with the new appointment and said: “He has been directly involved with Foundation technology for several years now and can offer many valuable insights, especially on the practical application of intrinsic safety techniques to the physical layer which is a major consideration within today’s marketplace.”

Philp added: “The council’s role is dynamic and challenging – the significant CAPEX and OPEX savings achievable through the implementation of Foundation fieldbus are now more widely understood, but the applicability of fieldbus will be further enhanced through the use of high speed Ethernet both in control networks and as a remote I/O bus.”
