Visitors looking for clarity about Industrial Ethernet at SPS Italia
13 June 2017
From 23 to 25 May 2017, PROCENTEC participated at the SPS IPC Drives Italia trade fair in Parma. This is the biggest trade fair for the industrial automation sector in Italy. A total number of 33.194 people visited the fair, which was 16% more than the year before.
PROCENTEC’s booth was visited by end users, installation companies and system integrators from the north and center of Italy. Some of them were not familiar with our solutions yet, while others have been using our products for a long time and wanted to see if PROCENTEC had something new to offer. Compared to last year, many people specifically visited the PROCENTEC stand. Because of the pre-existing knowledge of our products and services, conversations therefore were more solution based than last year.
Transition to Industrial Ethernet
In the automation sector, there is currently a transition going on from the traditional PROFIBUS systems to Industrial Ethernet. Italian companies are willing to follow this transition, but still find it difficult to understand. This was one of the main reasons they came to the PROCENTEC booth. Our experts were able to provide them with all necessary information and to show them PROCENTEC Atlas, the solution for Industrial Ethernet diagnostics. Reactions on this new solution were very positive, as it opens the opportunity to easily understand what is going on in your network.
Continuing attention for ProfiTrace
As PROFIBUS is still the protocol of choice in most Italian companies, also the ProfiTrace toolkit is continuing to gain a lot of attention. The ProfiTrace is currently the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks and is a well-known and widely used solution throughout the world.
