Emerson Process Management has joined the PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation (PNO), meaning the solutions provider will now support both the PROFIBUS/PROFINET and HART industrial communication technologies.
According to a report from ARC Advisory Group, the move will allow Emerson Process Management to expand its technology to improve asset and machinery health management for its customers.
“Emerson expects that its collaboration with the technical committees and working groups of PNO and its PI International affiliate will enhance asset management in devices that use PROFIBUS DP like electronic drives, motor starters, and others,” said ARC Advisory Group.
The PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e.V. (PNO) was founded in 1989 as a non-profit organisation. It owns the PROFIBUS and PROFINET technologies and is responsible for further development.
PROFIBUS & PROFINET International is currently the world’s largest interest group for industrial communication covering all key aspects of industrial automation.
