Doug Houseman believes that reclosers are the single most important distribution automation product today, and that no one is really working on making the products work together in a fashion that makes it easy to train field workers.

Houseman will bring these ideas to light when he moderates the “Ask the Experts” Manufacturer Panel Discussion at OMICRON’s Second Annual 2017 Recloser Workshop on April 26-27 at the OMICRON Academy Houston Training Center. Eight recloser manufacturers will be on the panel including: ABB, Eaton, Beckwith Electric, G&W Electric, Siemens, S&C Electric, Siemens, Schweitzer Engineering, and NOJA Power.

“This is the first of its kind in our industry whereby we gather together all of the Recloser Manufacturers with many of them being fierce competitors,” said Wayne Bishop, marketing manager at OMICRON. “Audience attendees are able to ask questions and Doug will ask some tough questions as well.”
