The Rapid Way to PROFINET …

Technology Workshop for Developers and Product Managers on 8 Septemer in Rugby is free-to-attend

With more than 13 million installed nodes (as of April 2016), PROFINET is the market leader among Industrial Ethernet systems in the automation world. The level of development of PROFINET enables fast and cost-effective implementation in applications. This requires a comprehensive line of products from numerous manufacturers.

To make implementation as easy and efficient as possible for all companies, a number of companies offer corresponding development environments/kits. The objective of this workshop is to provide information on developing PROFINET products and to present implementation options. 

The presenter, David Heinze, will explain the development kit in detail, the software user interface and the configuration of field devices.
