The Profibus and Profinet User Conference takes place on 23/24 June 2015 at the Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK. Packed with presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions suitable for a wide range of experience levels from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems, this event will cover the latest developments in Profibus and Profinet technology.
Here is a brief selection from what is on offer:
Profinet is widely accepted and well proven in plant engineering. This is because a lot of Profinet functions were defined in close collaboration with customers and are used now in many applications. But also in the field of mechanical engineering, the modular and adaptable architecture of Profinet, together with its comprehensive function set, enables innovative and cost-saving machine automation.

The Profibus and Profinet communication protocols seem made for each other - which is not at all surprising, since good relationships are built on communication and having a lot in common.

It is therefore easy to move from one protocol to the other. Read More.
This presentation will first explain why functional safety is important for modern control systems and industrial equipment, and then how Profisafe can be used in delivering functional safety. It will also briefly discuss the requirements for IT security in modern controls and how this can impact and affect decisions made for functional safety. Read More.
