The Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) Fluid Power Industrial Consortium (FPIC) March 2, 2018 seminar will focus on devices that perform self-diagnostics and troubleshooting, and integrate easily with plug and play functionality.

Sensor industry marketing expert Roger Grace of Roger Grace Associates will deliver the keynote address, “Smart Sensors in Fluid Power: A Systems-Solutions Approach.” Additional presentations from fluid power industry notables will also be included in this information-rich seminar.

“This is a unique opportunity for attendees to obtain up-to-the-minute information on smart sensors and their ever increasing and important role in fluid power. In addition to Roger Grace’s keynote overview presentation on smart sensors, leading fluid power industry speakers will address technologies and applications of smart sensors in fluid power which are smaller, more cost-effective and more robust,” says Tom Wanke, Director of the FPIC. “Additionally, wireless sensors for measuring pressure, temperature, position, velocity, acceleration, flowrate, load, torque and system fluid condition, as well as sensors with internal self-calibration and diagnostic functionality, will also be discussed.”

The seminar will also provide attendees with the opportunity to meet and network with diverse industry professionals who represent stakeholders in the fluid power industry and experience the benefits of becoming a consortium member. The non-consortium member registration fee is $125 which includes a light breakfast and lunch. Registration is free for current FPIC consortium members.
