Book now: Profibus technology exhibition

A major Profibus Technology Exhibition that coincides with the 25th anniversary of the technology will be held in Sydney on May 14, 2009 at the Kirribilli Club.

Organisers of the ‘One Technology for all’ EXPO, the Profibus Association of Australia & New Zealand (PAANZ), anticipate a good attendance this year, especially from professionals in the electrical, factory and process automation sectors.

There is no entry fee to this event which is designed to enable visitors to derive maximum benefit from Profibus technology. PAANZ has brought together a forum of prominent industry experts who will share their views on Profibus’s latest developments, the issues it faces and future direction.

The Information Forum will be combined with a Technology Exhibition where PAANZ members will showcase their products and solutions in an interactive environment, demonstrating Profibus at all levels of the plant.

This 25th anniversary is a significant event for the Australian Profibus community. Local adoption levels of Profibus within the process and factory automation sectors have grown dramatically over the last five years — a trend which looks set to continue in Australia and around the world, PAANZ says.

Of particular interest to all attendees this year will be a presentation on the evolution of the Profibus protocol and the development of specifications that enable it to cover almost any application.

The presentation will cover: Profibus DP and PA which provide comprehensive coverage of factory and process applications; Profinet, the Profibus equivalent of the industry Ethernet; Profisafe, a safety communication protocol that that reduces the error probability of data transmission; and Profidrive which is designed specifically for motion drives.

Strong industry support backed by an interesting programme of speakers will make this Profibus Technology Exhibition a great networking and learning opportunity for all visitors — whatever may be their professional skill or knowledge of fieldbus, says PAANZ.
