PI is exhibiting at Hanover Fair again this year. The 215 square meter (2300 square feet) booth is in Hall 9 at D68. There are 24 kiosks and hundreds of products from many manufacturers. It is situated directly on the “Automation & IT Tour”, which leads by way of a red carpet through the halls of the trade fair.
Visitors can learn about four technology areas from the products of the other co-exhibitors. In these exhibition areas, visitors receive a comprehensive overview of the diversity and applications of the technologies as well as an overview of newly certified devices:
- Process automation (live demo of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in process automation)
- Production automation (diversity of devices with PROFINET interfaces and other technologies)
- Information on PROFIenergy, PROFIdrive, and PROFIsafe
- IO-Link (diversity of devices, services, and manufacturers)
In particular, the interaction of various technologies and manufacturers in the process automation area, which will also be observable in a live PA demo, may be of great interest. All aspects of FDI and the use of PROFINET in process automation will be discussed, in particular.
