The PROFIBUS & PROFINET Conference 2015 - Stratford-on-Avon, June 23/24

05 May 2015

Packed with presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions suitable for a wide range of experience levels  from first-time users to those with extensive experience with working systems this  event will cover the latest developments in PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology. 

Here’s a brief selection from what’s on offer: 

Future trends and their impact on the networks of the future. Presented by Karsten Schneider, PI Chairman, this keynote presentation will focus on two major topics - looking at where the PI community stands today from an organizational perspective and offering his vision of the future for PROFIBUS/PROFINET technology. He will be looking at new technology developments.

PROFINET is widely accepted and well proven in plant engineering. This is because a lot of PROFINET functions were defined in close collaboration with customers and are used now in many applications. But also in the mechanical engineering the modular and adaptable architecture of PROFINET together with its comprehensive function set allows innovative and cost-saving.

The Profibus and PROFI¬NET communication pro¬tocols seem made for each other - which isn't at all surprising, since good relationships are built on communication and hav¬ing a lot in common. Their affiliation seems to have been fated from the start though, as both were created in Karlsruhe, Germany through the co¬operation of groups from all around the world. 

Why functional safety is important for modern control systems. The presentation will firstly discuss why functional safety is important for modern control systems and industrial equipment and then explain how PROFIsafe can be used in delivering functional safety. 

Find out why PROFIBUS became the preferred water industry serial communications protocol ... Roger Marlow's presentation will start by discussing the reasons for the initial implementation of intelligent Motor Control Centres (iMCCs) and serial communications networks in the water industry during AMP 3 and AMP 4 (2000-2010), highlighting why PROFIBUS became the preferred water industry serial bus. 

Do you want to go beyond reading about PROFINET and have a go using it? This workshop will give you practical experience on a live PROFINET system and give you the opportunity of using the latest configuration and analysis tools from several manufacturers. 

How to Implement PROFIBUS in Process Plant. Using application-based examples, this workshop addresses key points for consideration in the use and installation of PROFIBUS in Process applications. Points covered include: Overview of basic Process application networks and the role of instrumentation and connection technology to control elements within the plant
