Level Measurement & Control

System and gauging range enhanced

April 2000 Level Measurement & Control

The year is now well underway, Y2K has come and gone, the "Latent Bug", 29 February/Y2K has come and gone and Electrex 2000, the national instrumentation and control exhibition, has already been completed. With a relatively long break between shows due to Electrex, The Control Roadshow is now scheduled to visit Witbank on 13 April in the Witbank City Hall. The show will also be the first on the PENMAC schedule to include support from the South African Institute of Measurement and Control (SAIMC) who will be providing a stand to facilitate new registrations.

As with all the PENMAC Roadshows, the doors will open at 12h00 and visitors are invited to view the exhibition until 18h00 on 13 April. Refreshments will be provided.

Exhibiting companies at Witbank this year include:

ABB Automation, AC/DC Dynamics, Adroit Technologies, Anglo Allied Engineering, Ascoreg, Atlas Industrial Systems, Autotech Weighing Systems, Biman Fluid Control, Burkert Contromatic, Danfoss, Dartcom, Endress + Hauser, Fibre Optics Technologies, Grintek System Technology, Honeywell SA, Industrial Automation & Control, Instrotech, KAB Instrumentation, Krohne, Kubler Africa, Laser Measurement, Loadtech, Measurtronic, N&Z Instrumentation/Control, Newco Instrumentation, PLC Direct, PREI Instruments, Ramsey Technology, RET Automation Controls, Route Automation, Sperogroup, Tracerco Africa, Trolex, Vega Instruments SA, Xycom/IPC, Yelland Control, Yokogawa SA.

Following Witbank, the Control Roadshow will return to Phalaborwa on the 1 June 2000. The schedule for the remainder of the year is:
