Special attention for PROFINET at PI Italia fair
13 April 2017
On April 5th 2017, PROCENTEC attended the PROFIDAY Italia event in Cavenago, which was hosted by PI Italy. The fair was the first PI-event in Italy this year and got visited by circa 100 people. Most of them were part of engineering companies and industrial automation companies from the north of Italy.
PROCENTEC was present with our own table desk, presenting several of our successful PROCENTEC products. Among them were Gateways, ComBricks, ProfiHubs and the PROFINET diagnostic solutions. Our team got the opportunity to explain these products to many customers, who were mainly interested in our PROFINET products, as most of the attending companies are working on projects using this protocol.
During the morning session, experts in the field gave several presentations. The topics included the technological trends of the Italian market, Industry 4.0 and the innovations of the PROFIBUS and PROFINET technologies. The presentations were mainly focused on PROFINET, which is becoming the protocol of choice, with 3.6 million PROFINET nodes installed worldwide just in 2016 compared to 2.4 million installed PROFIBUS nodes within the same period.
