IO-Link Workshops – Denmark

At the end of May and the beginning of June, PROFIBUS Denmark hosted two workshops at two technical schools in Denmark. Many guests, teachers, and students got new insights about IO-Link.

Finally, we could meet again in real life, as PROFIBUS Danmark recently hosted two workshops. For two days, we welcomed many interested guests, teachers, and students.

Full attention on the speaker Philip Rosted from ifm giving an overview of their IO-Link approach.

The morning was packed with exciting speeches from some of PROFIBUS Denmark’s member companies. The participants got the latest knowledge about IO-Link and saw examples of how it can be set up and used. The present participants were curious and asked relevant questions. The speakers willingly shared their knowledge and demonstrated, among other things, how an installation with IO-Link works versus a standard installation.

In the afternoon, the participants could visit the fine exhibitions from some of the PROFIBUS Denmark member companies. They had the opportunity to learn more about the possibilities from the presented solutions.

At the workshops PROFIBUS Denmark these companies were represented: Balluff, Bihl & Wiedemann, Carlo Gavazzi, ifm electronic, Murrelektronik, Phoenix Contact, SICK, and Siemens.

Henrik Bostrup from SICK talks about their IO-Link approach.
