Free seminars

Our free seminar series is helping users across North America gain a deeper understanding of not only PROFIBUS but also PROFIBUS in the Process Industry, and PROFINET too.


ARC Advisory Group Senior Analyst Harry Forbes is providing an objective overview of the Industrial Ethernet market. His insight into the market and the various competing technologies has been much appreciated.


Coupled with the Basic Ethernet section, the PROFINET seminars have scored high on attendees’ seminar evaluation forms. Almost everyone ranked the length as “Perfect.” and one participant noted: “Basic Ethernet was the best review I ever experienced.” Another said, “The seminar staff was very knowledgeable and approachable. Great job!”


The most requested additions are for more live demos and to show integration with non-PROFINET networks. DeviceNet integration is already being demonstrated and others will be added.


We are continuing to add a few cities for PROFINET seminars too, so watch the website.


Register early to ensure a seat!


For developers ready to build products incorporating PROFINET IO, an intensive two day PROFINET IO Developers’ Class is being offered in Johnson City, Tennessee (includes an OPC Server demonstration). New classes are being added – watch the website for updates.


The ISA EXPO show is scheduled for October 25-27 in Chicago. Plan to stop by for the latest insight on PROFIBUS and PROFINET – we are right by the main entrance. PTO members: apply for space in the booth here.
