Agenda published for Profinet, Profibus and IO-Link seminarPresented by Profibus and Profinet International and hosted by Endress+Hauser, the Profinet, Profibus and IO-Link seminar addresses the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It takes place on 26 June 2019 in Machester.

Covering key application areas such as control systems and energy management, pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, packaging and printing, it focuses on the practical aspects of using Profinet, Profibus and IO-Link, from system design and safety considerations through to fault-finding and maintenance.

The following are included in the agenda that has just been published:

  • Profibus International and basics of Profibus and Profinet
  • Profibus network design for Process Industries
  • Profinet network design
  • Industrial network commissioning and testing
  • Profibus and Profinet device configuration tools
  • IO-Link for the ‘last metres’ communication
  • Industrial networks safety and security
  • Update on Industry 4.0, IIoT, TSN and APL

Supported by live demonstrations and an exhibition with demonstrations of actual tools used in configuration and maintenance, the seminar will be of value to Designers, Production/System Engineers, Instrument Technicians/Engineers and C&I Engineers involved in the design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and process plant.

With nearly 80 million nodes installed worldwide, PROFINET, PROFIBUS and IO-Link are market leaders, providing state-of-the-art digital communications addressing all the needs of manufacturing and process industries, significantly lowering capital expenditure on installation, commissioning and maintenance. They offer unprecedented integration of automation, control, monitoring and safety systems using standardised and widely supported communications and networking systems.

This seminar is ably presented by specialists from PI UK member companies. Attendance is free of charge to pre-registered delegates from the User community, i.e. companies that own, operate, design, build or maintain automated process plant and manufacturing facilities. The event will provide delegates with an excellent networking opportunity and the ability to speak to experts.
