Connected Manufacturing is the perfect opportunity for us to show how PROFINET and IO-Link are fundamental to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things.
PI UK will be present on stand E33 in the Connected Manufacturing zone and our Deputy Chairman, Derek Lane will be presenting a paper in the technical sessions on the subject of PROFINET on IIoT/IND4.0 including an update on TSN and APL (Time Sensitive Networking and Advanced Physical Layer).
Titled PROFINET for IoT, IIoT and Industry 4.0, the presentation is described as "a short journey to explain The Internet of Things, The Industrial Internet of Things, IND4.0, Big Data. How PROFINET is placed as the ideal Industrial Fieldbus to fulfil the above, how its implemented and why you should consider it, future support for TSN and APL. Some of the myths explained."
