PI North America, along with host Phoenix Contact, are sponsoring a US-based PROFINET Plugfest. This event provides the opportunity for device and controller manufacturers to evaluate their products in an environment that comes as close to the real automation world as possible. Testing is carried out in a confidential atmosphere starting with small groups around individual controllers. After circulating among the various controllers, devices are then tested for interoperability in one large network. Here are the details:
