Practical Aspects of PROFINET, PROFIBUS and IO-Link

PI UK’s free-to-attend seminar to be held on June 26th at Endress+Hauser Ltd, Floats Road, Manchester M23 9NF will address the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention being paid to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Covering key application areas such as control systems and energy management, pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, packaging and printing, mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, 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.
