On February 18, 2021, Consorzio PROFIBUS e PROFINET Italia members' meeting was held digitally. During the meeting, the new Board of Directors, new members, and a recap of 2020 were all presented.
This month's issue comes full of international news: Italy concludes a successful workshop; PI Southern Africa is set to exhibit at Electra Mining Africa 2020; PITC UK says goodbye to one of their founding members who is heading for retirement; and the IO-Link China Community is officially established.
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!
