At the Hanover Fair, PI is demonstrating how modular automation units can be integrated into a higher-level process control or SCADA system within minutes using Module Type Packages (MTP).
Module Type Package (MTP) brings together a number of standard technologies to reduce engineering effort in the process and hybrid industries. Learn more about what it is and why you should care.
New IO-Link devices to announce this month include: flowmeters from VSE; vacuum pumps from Corval; temperature transmitters from Omega; and contrast sensors from Leuze. Also announced are IO-Link masters from Turck, and Field Data Enablement from SIEMENS via PROFINET.
Read about how and why PROFINET is a critical industrial communication technology for the digital transformation in the second of this two part series. Hint: it's about future-proofing: by enabling vertical integration through the coexistence of multiple protocols on a single network infrastructure.
On Thursday March 30, 2023, PI North America hosted its first IO-Link User Workshop in the United States. The event was held in Auburn Hills, MI and was a huge success, attended by over 120 people.
Watch the archived recording of this recent webinar and download the slides to learn about omlox: the world's first open location tracking standard.
At last months PI Konferenz, more than 350 participants discussed trends and challenges in communications technology in Frankfurt, Germany. It has become increasingly evident that the digital transformation in industrial environments simply won't work without PI's technologies.
