Process Instrumentation & Control

The Process Instrumentation & Control (PIC) sector represents companies that manufacture or supply instrumentation and/or control to the process and energy supply industries. The focus is on areas of instrumentation, analytics and control technology.

Within the PIC sector GAMBICA offers its members an arena for the exchange of sector-specific opinions and experiences e.g. Industry 4.0, future skill shortages, standards and legislation, environmental issues as well as energy and resource efficiency. The PIC sector offers a unique Measurement and Control Information Exchange System (MACIES) statistics collection. Through this, participants obtain a clear and detailed picture of the current state of the market and on future potential and market development.

In product-related technical working groups, technological trends and their impact on the respective product range are discussed. In addition to this, the PIC sector supports the competitiveness of its members through observation and persuasion of proposed legislation of UK, European and international standardisation activities.

For specific tasks, working groups such as the FLAG (Flammable Atmospheres Group) and Process Measurement & Control Systems Group (PMCSG) are set up where product-specific technology issues, monitoring and evaluation of international standardisation activities are evaluated.
