Hosted in Manchester by Endress + Hauser on 20 June 2018, this free-to-attend PI UK 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).
Covering key application areas such as mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, control systems and energy management, pulp and paper, chemicals, utilities, pharmaceuticals, packaging and printing, it focuses on the practical aspects of using Profibus, Profinet and IO-Link, from system design and safety considerations through to fault-finding and maintenance.
Supported by 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, Profibus, Profinet 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 exceptional integration of automation, control, monitoring and safety systems using standardised and widely supported communications and networking systems.
This seminar is presented by specialists from PI UK member companies. Attendance is free of charge to pre-registered delegates from the user community - ie 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 experts.
