PI Konferenz 2017 – Network of the Future

The program of the 5th PI Konferenz on March 22 and 23, 2017, at the Commerzbank-Arena football stadium in Frankfurt, Germany is finalized.

Under the leading theme “Network of the Future – Shaping Today the Production of Tomorrow”, PI will present its technologies and applications relating to PROFINET, PROFIBUS, IO-Link as well as application profiles and integration technologies against the background of the Industrie 4.0 trend.

Apart from the strategy of PI, fifteen lectures will deal with a number of relevant subjects in detail, primarily with Lifecycle and Asset Management. In addition, the main focus of the presentations is on current application scenarios in process automation, IO-Link applications, as well as safety requirements.

In practice-oriented and technology-specific workshops, the role of the PI technologies in concrete use cases will be shown in order to demonstrate their advantages, handling and use in future production. By means of the practical examples and demo models, attendees will be given a deeper insight into specific topics, such as engineering with FDI, grounding and shielding, maintenance and analysis, and certification.

For the first time, the conference partners will have the possibility of presenting their individual solutions in innovative industry talks.

The varied and informative program of the PI Konferenz will demonstrate that by means of its technologies, PI is more than just a reliable partner in automation today. It will play a pioneering role in future production and development within the framework of Industrie 4.0 for tomorrow.
