Four IO-Link User Workshops will take place over the next few weeks in the countries of Hungary, France, Germany, and Italy. Additional workshops targeted towards IO-Link device manufacturers include an Interop and an IO-Link Safety Workshop, both taking place in Germany.
It all started in 1994 when Endress + Hauser Italia, SAIA Burgess Italia, and Siemens Italia founded what is now known as "Consorzio Profibus e Profinet Italia". This year the organization proudly celebrates its 25th year anniversary. During all these years, it has been a key promoter of PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and IO-Link technologies. Grazie Italia!
PI offers many different levels of training and events to learn about PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link. From the introductory up to the advanced, PI events are intended to be educational and informative. This month we highlight some of PI's no-cost events going on around the globe.

On November 9, PI Italy held their final PROFIBUS and PROFINET event of 2016 in the industrial district in southern Italy.

Unlike many other organizations in industrial automation, PI is large enough that it can support a decentralized structure (as opposed to a centralized one). This means each Regional PI Association can deliver support and events that are suited to their local market. More importantly, it means there's a lot happening around the globe, all the time. Newsworthy topics highlighted in this article are from: China, India, Italy, Korea, and Norway.
