This free-to-attend seminar addresses the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications. Covering the use of PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link in key application areas such as pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, packaging, printing, electrical and electronics assembly, robotics, automotive engineering, mechanical handling and logistics, control systems and energy management, it focuses on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS and PROFINET from system design and safety considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding.
Supported by 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 design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and process plant.
Standardised in IEC 61158, PROFIBUS and PROFINET provide 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 presented by fieldbus specialists from PROFIBUS & PROFINET International UK Group 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 plant. The event will provide delegates with an excellent networking opportunity and the ability to speak to our experts who will not force delegates to buy anything.
