Admittedly, the creation of installation guidelines seems tedious and dry at first glance, but it’s rewarded in day-to-day practice. Users benefit from clear specifications on the installation of PI technologies.
PI is looking forward to a personal reunion with the community. SPS 2021 offers this opportunity, and PI's joint booth will have some innovations to offer in Nuremberg on Nov 23-25, 2021 in Hall 5 at Booth 210. The IO-Link members' general meeting will also take place in Nuremberg on Nov 26.
On Wednesday, November 17, PI North America, in collaboration with PICC/PITC Argentina, will host a PROFINET webinar in Spanish. The webinar will cover maintenance and diagnostics in PROFINET networks. Register today / Regístrese hoy.
New products to announce this month include: Ex area PROFINET valves from BEx Solutions; new IO-Link inductive couplers from Balluff; Miniaturized PROFINET connections from HARTING; and RFID read/write devices with IO-Link from Turck. Learn more.
Once again, a group of companies has banded together to create a vendor-independent standard and found a home in PI to promote, harmonize, and certify their technology. This time it’s a collection of the world’s foremost industrial robot manufacturers.
Learn how Time-Sensitive Networking brings determinism to Ethernet—from time synchronization and prioritization to preemption and boundary ports. It can be complex; even Ethernet today, if you were intimately aware of its inner workings, is quite complex. And yet, Ethernet is incredibly easy to use. The same applies to TSN features.
Process plants must be safe for people, products and the environment. Ethernet is the de facto communication standard, but it does not meet the requirements of process automation without modification. Ethernet with an Advanced Physical Layer (Ethernet-APL) enables long cable lengths, explosion protection, communication and power supply over two wires.
Until the launch of 5G, every previous generation of mobile phone technology was primarily intended to improve the operation of the mobile handset. The recent installation of 5G networks marks the first time that a new generation of mobile technology has been built around the needs of machines and systems rather than handset users.
