Rockwell Automation’s Automation University — a series of hands-on education workshops for customers using automation — will return in 2010, visiting multiple metropolitan and regional centres in Australia and New Zealand.
Rockwell’s Automation University allows attendees from various industries to learn about the company’s latest products and how they fit into the ‘Integrated Architecture’ approach to plant-wide control and information systems, says Rockwell.
The program for 2010 will include sessions that focus on solutions to key challenges faced by industry today, including manufacturing and IT convergence, energy management, and industrial and machine safety.
The event will also introduce participants to ‘landmark’ new products being launched by Rockwell Automation in 2010, including FactoryTalk Historian Machine Edition, which is the world’s first in-chassis historian and collects data directly from the backplane of the controller, Rockwell says.
Automation University will be held in up to four locations in each of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and New Zealand from April to July.
The full syllabus will be announced early in 2010. For more information, visit the Rockwell website.
