The Profibus EXPO hosted by Profibus Association of Australia in Brisbane later this year will feature a round table discussion involving technical experts representing some of the world’s most popular communication protocols in process and factory automation.
The Fieldbus Forum is an innovative promotion designed by the PAA to showcase leading protocols and create a better understanding of their competitive advantages and the relevance of multiple, integrated field communication in automation solutions.
The panel of technical experts will be selected from major automation and field instrumentation companies and will be chaired by an independent moderator.
Participating technologies will include Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet IP, EtherCAT, FDT/DTM, Foundation Fieldbus, AS-i and Modbus IP.
A truly unique opportunity for EXPO visitors to gather at one centrally located event to meet with experts, the Fieldbus Forum offers a platform for participants to learn more about the latest in fieldbus communications and how these protocols can be employed by users to increase productivity and profitability.
Participating companies in the ‘Fieldbus Forum’ will include Schneider Electric - FDT/DTM, Pepperl+Fuchs - Foundation Fieldbus, IFM Efector - AS-i, Siemens - Profibus and Profinet, Schneider Electric - Modbus IP, and Beckhoff – EtherCAT.
