Technology user organisations strengthen presence at SPS Drives expo

February 2017 News

Profibus & Profinet International, the ODVA and the FDT Group were present again at the SPS IPC Drives expo in Nuremberg. The international trade fair encompassed the entire spectrum of automation technology with Endress+Hauser experts present on various user organisation stands.

The umbrella organisation Profibus & Profinet International stand showed Endress+Hauser Profibus & Profinet devices as well as their integration into Siemens systems on a newly designed demonstration wall. Additional highlights were the gateway Fieldgate SFG500 and FieldCare, Endress+Hauser’s software tool for device configuration and plant asset management. Typical use cases, which demonstrate the advantages of digital communication, completed the presentation.

Endress+Hauser’s growing EtherNet/IP device portfolio was demonstrated as a working application where cleaning in place (CIP), typical for the food, beverage and life sciences industries, was showcased on the ODVA stand. A multi-vendor demonstration model showed how EtherNet/IP components could be seamlessly integrated into established systems.

The FDT Group showed the multitude of ways in which FDT could be used in process and factory automation, including FDI integration. The stand also had Industry 4.0/IIOT in connection with OPC-UA as a focal point.
