Taking place at the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry Oct 24, this free-to-attend seminar will address the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and process industry applications, with particular attention being paid to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).


Building on the valuable feedback gained from delegates at our previous seminars, this event will feature a substantially revised agenda covering a range of subjects from network design, installation and commissioning through to functional safety & cybersecurity, EMC, Time Sensitive Networks (TSN), OPC-UA, Industry 4.0 and Advanced Physical Layer (APL).

While we are not quite ready to publish the agenda, don’t let this put you off – we can assure you it will be absolutely packed with essential information. So don’t delay – book today!

Who will benefit?

The seminar will be of great value to Designers, Production/System Engineers, Instrument Technicians/Engineers and C&I Engineers involved in the design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and process plant.

Covering key application areas such as mechanical handling and logistics, robotics, automotive engineering, electrical and electronics assembly, control systems and energy management, pulp & paper, chemical, utilities, pharmaceutical, packaging and printing, the event will be supported by an exhibition with demonstrations of actual tools used in design, configuration, fault finding and maintenance.

Market leading technologies

With nearly 80 million nodes installed worldwide, PROFIBUS, PROFINET and IO-Link are truly market leaders, providing state of the art digital communications addressing all the needs of manufacturing and process industries, significantly lowering capital expenditure on installation, commissioning and maintenance. They offer unprecedented integration of automation, control, monitoring and safety systems using standardised and widely supported communications and networking solutions.

This seminar is ably presented by specialists from PI UK member companies. Attendance is free of charge to pre-registered delegates from the User community, i.e. companies that own, operate, design, build or maintain automated plant. The event will provide delegates with an excellent networking opportunity and the ability to speak to experts.

Places are limited so don’t delay – book today!
