The Smart Way to Industry 4.0 with PROFINET Based Technologies –
Exhibition and Seminar
Organized by PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI UK) and the European Interreg Project INCASE (“Industry 4.0 via Networked Control Applications and Sustainable Engineering”), these free-to-attend seminars will address the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0.
In addition to a highly informative seminar covering the essentials of using PROFINET and IO-Link towards smarter manufacturing, the events will also feature an exhibition of the latest products from PI-UK member companies including:
- AJM Engineering Management
- BEKA Associates
- Belcom Cables
- Control Specialists
- HMS UK
- Hitex UK
- Industrial Communication Products

The Schildknecht Internet of Things platform offers a unique combination of global connectivity, powerful security and manageable costs. Built around our DATAEAGLE 7000 series of IoT gateways, it gives you all the components and services necessary for a strong IoT solution from sensor to cloud. For optimal global operability we use mobile radio tech that offers the highest network coverage and secures independence from existing Internet infrastructures. This comes at a manageable cost as we use universal eSIM cards validated by countless providers and provides solid security to your data at any time since we use end-to-end encryption.
Process Information and Control in Hazardous Areas
BEKA associates will be demonstrating its range of bus-powered eight variable Indicators and Displays. Panel or Field mounting devices to show operators process values in gas or dust hazardous or non-hazardous areas.
The fieldbus display can be supplied with six isolated alarm outputs, each of which may be linked to any of the displayed fieldbus variables. Configuration and alarm setpoints are entered via the front panel push-buttons which may be protected by a security code.
PROFINET and PROFIBUS Cables
Belcom Cables are a specialist cable distributor and we will be highlighting our ranges of Profibus, Profinet and Surelight fibre optic cables. We will have extensive samples available covering many different applications for these cables in both softskin and our Dataguard SWA versions. We work closely with our manufacturing partners to ensure our cables are of the highest quality and stock these in depth at our warehouse facility close to Stansted Airport. We hope you will find Belcom of interest to you and look forward to meeting you during the day.
CONTROL SPECIALISTS LTD
Control Specialists are a technical support and training organisation with 25+ years of practical experience. As well as providing support for PROFIBUS, PROFINET, AS-I and CANBus networks, we deliver PI-certified training courses for both PROFIBUS and PROFINET around the UK and occasionally abroad. We are an approved solutions partner of Indu-Sol, manufacturers of diagnostic and monitoring devices for PROFIBUS, PROFINET, AS-I and CAN Bus and will have some of their products on display. This year we are launching a one-day EMC-awareness training course aimed at those people with a conventional, low-frequency, background in industrial automation systems.
Hitex can provide solutions from the factory floor to the cloud, which include diagnostics, OPC, data capture and conversion of data between protocols. We can integrate your existing sensors with modern PLCs or connect between an Allen Bradley/Mitsubishi/B&R and Siemens PLC or gather data from a machine with only a VGA video output and push it to the cloud with our range of rugged industrial PCs. We can even carry out acceptance or diagnostic testing on PROFIBUS, PROFINET, CAN or Industrial Ethernet networks. All this with full support available should you need a little more assistance. The sky really is the limit!
Easy Troubleshooting, Maintenance and Monitoring
PROCENTEC Mercury is a robust tablet which features our new cross-platform software package. This device is perfect for troubleshooting, maintenance and monitoring Industrial Ethernet and PROFIBUS networks, through in-the-field-use of our software. The PROCENTEC Mercury enables you to gain insight into the health and possible faults in your industrial network. While developing this innovative product, the user was, and remains, the main focus. This means the PROCENTEC Mercury offers an easy to use interface, remote and wireless connection, and mobility anywhere and anyplace.
Wago will be demonstrating their PFC200 with PROFIBUS master and IO-Link master controlling a Balluff ultra sonic sensor-to-light stack on IO-Link.
… plus a special demonstration of the INCASE Interreg 2 Seas Project provided by project partners UGent and KU Leuven from Belgium, and the University of Essex and the University of Kent. A joint experiment showing how redundant networks “survive” massive EMI disturbance, demonstration of I-Devices running MATLAB generated code, … all the way up to co-simulation technology using Siemens NX.
