Update on Practical Aspects of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in Process Seminar

Presentations now available to download

PROFINET and PROFIBUS in Process SeminarThis highly practical seminar held in June at the premises of PI UK member Endress + Hauser addressed some of the key issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in process and hybrid industries. The presentations – many of which were based on actual experience – were of great value to the Instrument Technicians/Engineers, C&I Engineers and System Engineers present on the day.

Covering the use of PROFINET, PROFIBUS and IIoT in key application areas such as Pulp & Paper, Chemical, Utilities, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas today, the event focused on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS in process industry applications from system design and hazardous area considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding.

The seminar was ably presented by specialists from PI UK, Mark Carter of BAE Systems, Andy Smith of Endress + Hauser, Andy Verwer of VTC and Mark Freeman and Peter Brown of Siemens. The audience were very appreciative, to judge by the feedback received:

  • “Excellent – device configuration especially.” – Daniel Norton, PQ Corp
  • “Informative event, cover current relevant topics”. – Bradley Tait, Sellafield Ltd
  • “Very good overview + a few good demos.” – Stephen Whittaker, Control Specialists
  • “Great venue, good information and content was very relevant.” – Martin Turner, Partech (Electronics) Ltd
