The PI community is pleased about a successful performance on one of the world’s most important exhibitions for industrial automation, the Hanover Fair in Germany. Despite the ashes of the islandic Eyjafjallajökull, flight ban and therefore less visitors than expected, the Hanover Fair convinced visitors and exhibitors alike. Numerous technical discussions, interesting new contacts and extensive exchange of know-how and experience took place on the joint PI booth, the technology turntable for industrial communication.
With the new corporate design PI presented a modern, open and clearly structured booth concept. In the focus of the presentation were the multi-vendor demos on PROFIsafe, PROFIdrive, PROFIBUS PA as well as PROFINET and of course IO-Link. The visitors showed special interest in the presentation of the new trendsetting energy-saving profile of PI “PROFIenergy”.
