PROFINET and PROFIBUS

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I always come into the transition from one year to the next thinking “I’m off the road; I can get caught up on blogging.”  Good theory.

Instead I’ve been scrambling to get ready for our PROFINET and PROFIBUS one-day training classes for 2011.  The PROFINET Training Manuals are at the printers; the CDs are pressed.  We’re ready for our first class of the year: PROFINET in Houston on February 24.  Registration is already at 131, but we have a large room, so seats are still available.  Details and links to a full agenda and registration are here.

I have stayed active in social media though… on Twitter.  I pointed to some new products and interesting news.

Elsewhere in the virtual world I answered a question about PROFIBUS: How is profibus faster than field bus?

    Went to the Houston Profinet one day training. Very informative. Learned a lot. Carl is also a very nice guy, especially considering I was somewhat combative. Recommended for anybody involved in industrial networks or controls.
