Lots to see at PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link seminar in Coventry

Table-top exhibition to accompany seminar

Taking place in Coventry on October 24th, this free-to-attend seminar will be supported by an exhibition with live product demonstrations, making it of great 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.

The event addresses 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).

Exhibitors include:

Here are a few examples of what will be on display:

Belcom Cables is a specialist supplier of industrial automation cables. As senior members of PROFIBUS UK they hold large stocks of PROFIBUS, PROFINET and fibre optic cables. Their Profi- cables are available with either solid or stranded conductors and either pvc or lszh outer sheaths. Available in softskin or with Belcom’s Dataguard SWA protection for harsh environments. Cables are both UV stable and colourfast. www.belcom.co.uk/
