COPA-DATA to hold an exclusive event for its Northern European Partners
The industrial automation software specialist COPA-DATA is uniting members of its Partner Community with an exclusive event aimed at stimulating ideas for the future of automation.The Northern European Partner Academy 2015 is a two day event held at the luxurious function rooms of Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, on June 9 and 10, 2015. All COPA-DATA partners from the UK and Scandinavia are welcome to attend the event free of charge, but limited seating will mean a definite sell out.
The first of the two information-packed days will be comprised of insights into the latest version of COPA-DATA's HMI/SCADA software - zenon 7.20. Particular attention will be paid to its applications in energy management, efficiency in manufacturing and the food and beverage industry.
The initial day will also provide a platform for partners to take part in debates regarding the latest industry trends. There will be a focus on Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and Big Data, as well as the chance to learn about how COPA-DATA's solutions can help companies take advantage of the fourth industrial revolution.
The second day will be dedicated to two specialist workshops - running parallel. One will focus on the standard for communication and systems for power utility automation - IEC 61850 - and the other on Big Data.
Participants will have to make the difficult choice between learning about how IEC 61850 is revolutionising electrical grids and how zenon can be used to archive and analyse vast sets of information.
"The Northern European Partner Academy is an excellent opportunity for existing and potential COPA-DATA partners to catch up on the latest industry insights and learn some technical tips first-hand from our expert team," enthused Martyn Williams, Managing Director of COPA-DATA UK.
"On top of all this there's the chance to network with representatives from some of the most cutting-edge companies in the UK and Scandinavia," continued Williams.
“Within the COPA-DATA Partner Community we focus on straight forward, exclusive and personal communication," explained Lisette Lillo Fagerstedt, Partner Programme Manager of COPA-DATA. "By providing our partners with the latest products and industry insights, we assure the best possible support to our zenon customers.
"COPA-DATA’s local Partner Academies are also great complement to the Global Partner Academy that is held every second year.”

zenon is COPA-DATA’s highly versatile product family for industry-specific ergonomic process solutions: from sensors through to ERP. It consists of zenon Analyzer, zenon Supervisor, zenon Operator and zenon Logic. zenon Analyzer provides templates to create tailor-made reports (e.g. on consumption, downtimes, KPIs) based on data from IT and automation. zenon Supervisor, an independent SCADA system, allows comprehensive process monitoring and control of redundant systems, even in complex networks and with secure remote access. zenon Operator guarantees, as an HMI system, safe control of machines and simple, intuitive operation – including Multi-Touch. zenon Logic, which is an integrated IEC 61131-3-based PLC system, allows optimum process control and logical data processing. As a platform-independent portfolio for process solutions, the zenon Product Family integrates smoothly into existing automation and IT environments and provides set-up wizards and templates to enable easy configuration and simple migration from other systems. The principle of "setting parameters instead of programming" is a characteristic feature of the zenon Product Family.
