A variety of distributed automation technologies, including automatic meter reading and SCADA system products, will be on display at DistribuTECH, to be held Feb 7-9 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL.

DistribuTech focuses on distributed automation topics for the water utility and electric power industries. More than 200 exhibiting companies are expected to participate in the 2006 event, with many offering products targeting the water industry. Some 4,000 electric and water industry professionals are expected to attend.

Along with the exhibition, the conference will feature water-related sessions on such topics as Security technologies for monitoring and control; Distributed automation tips & techniques; Energy efficiency and cost reduction through use of automation; Data collection and information management; and Wringing the benefits out of water AMR - using AMR as a conservation tool.

A panel discussion will focus on the challenges water utilities face with training and retaining the technical personnel needed to maintain and operate automation systems. Panelists will each give a brief opening presentation on how they’ve dealt with the issue, followed by a moderated discussion/debate of the issues involved, with comments and questions from attendees welcome.
