The program for the 4th PI Conference on March 11-12, 2015, at the Technik Museum in Speyer (Germany) is set. In this 25th anniversary year of the founding of PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) Germany, the program, whose motto is “Network of the future – Partner of users for 25 years”, will feature expert workshops on different technologies as well as presentations.
Presentations at the event will focus on application reports on the technologies of industrial communication with PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link. These will be supplemented by use scenarios of application profiles such as PROFIsafe, PROFIenergy, and PROFIdrive. Facets such as the network, architectures, data exchange, devices, and systems will be examined against the backdrop of the complete life cycle of a production plant – from the planning, configuration, and engineering phases to active operation.
For the first time, the 2015 PI Conference will offer technology-specific workshops in addition to presentations. On the basis of real-world examples and demo models, these workshops will provide users with in-depth insight into the benefits, handling, and use of the technologies.
With its chosen theme for the conference, PI is not only looking back at the past technology developments of PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and IO-Link. Rather, the presentations at the conference will also point out future developments and the change that automation technology is undergoing.
