The PROFIBUS Group is delighted to announce the publication of its draft 2015 conference programme.
Packed with new information from the experts on design, implementation, maintenance and management of PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems, the programme will contain a mixture of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions suitable for a wide variety of experience; from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems.
Taking place in Stratford-on-Avon on June 23/24, the event will cover the latest developments in PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology including safety & security, energy management and of course, IIoT – the Industrial Internet of Things, aka Industry 4.0
There will be state-of-the-industry presentations from some top presenters and very able engineers presenting the facts and demonstrating the systems. We’ve lined up not one, but two Keynote addresses. PI Chairman Karsten Schnieder will unveil interesting new information about the future direction of our technologies while Simon Keogh, General Manager at Siemens Factory Automation & Control will discuss Industry 4.0, focusing on the requirements to be met before the “digitalisation of automation”, which shape the factories of the future can become a reality.
Many other presentations include one from Roger Marlow of the Water Industry’s standards body, WIMES, who will be discussing the specification and use of PROFIBUS in the Water Industry, while Bernd Kremer of Softing will be presenting a case study on the use of PROFINET at the assembly line of AUDI in Germany.
The Workshops will take delegates through the complete process of setting up and maintaining PROFIBUS and PROFINET networks, from basics through to advanced diagnostics.
The event, supported by a table top exhibition is suitable for a wide variety of experience; from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems.
