InstMC FS & EX-SIG Workshop

Duration:  1 hour

Presenters: Harvey Dearden (26th Feb), Dil Wetherill (27th Feb), with Martin Hold supporting on both workshops

Day One – 13:30-14:30

Title: InstMC Ex (Atex) Workshop – Non-certified i.s. Junction Boxes; is that an inspection fail?

Day Two – 13:30-14:30

Title: InstMC Functional Safety Workshop - ‘What will be in 61508 Ed3’>

Abstract:

Join members of the Institute of Measurement & Control for an introduction to the work and activities of the Functional Safety and Explosive Atmospheres, Special Interest Groups. Find out about the professional level qualifications, RExE and RFSE, available through the Institute for engineers registered with the Engineering Council UK. These are peer reviewed qualifications based on demonstrated competence and commitment at a professional level within their associated disciplines. A Briefing Note will be presented over each of the two days of the workshop. Day 1 will feature “Non-certified i.s Junction Boxes; is that an inspection fail?”, a review of the assertion that multi-circuit i.s junction boxes should be Ex certified and, on Day 2, ‘What will be in 61508 Ed3’ – a foretaste of things to come.  A Q&A period will end the session with an opportunity to address any or all of the topics featured.




ZOA Robotics Workshop

Duration: 30 - 45min

Day Two – 11:00-11:45

Title:  Improve operating efficiencies and significantly reduce exposure to people with ZOA Robotics

Abstract:

ZOA Robotics is creating serviced robotic solutions for regular inspection of industrial sites. ZOA's Zeta robotic platform creates large, data-dense maps of entire sites, providing an incredibly detailed picture of plant assets.

At this workshop founder and chief executive Thiago will address the recent trend towards robotic inspections, the benefits of digitisation, and how Zeta’s thermal, gas, visual and other sensors can help clients to achieve high operational reliability while improving safety for operators.

Join ZOA Robotics and learn how ZOA’s new generation of service robots will revolutionise inspections and deliver a step-change in condition and integrity monitoring on industrial sites.
