For us at PI, networking is not just a technology. It is what we live day by day and worldwide. Collaboration and standardization are more important than ever in these times. That is why we are so excited about the return to Hanover Fair this year. The range of PI technologies on display will be unprecedented.
Continuing the positive trend for PI technology, PROFINET is fast approaching the 50 million installed devices milestone, while IO-Link is experiencing extraordinary growth. With Ethernet-APL, PROFINET is well positioned for the future in process automation as well.
Join us Tuesday May 17th for a PI international webinar on implementing PROFINET technology into devices - held twice to cover all time zones. The content is targeted towards device manufacturers, though all are welcome. Register today!
Join us on Wednesday June 22nd for a PI North America webinar on omlox.
