Karlsruhe ? 06 June 2005:

Large-scale road shows in South East Asia and China pay tribute to the dynamics of the new markets. Some of the stations included Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Manila and Bangkok as well as industrial centers in China. The resonance to the presentations was excellent: The numerous visitors exhibited great expert knowledge and intend to increasingly use PROFIBUS and PROFINET in their plants. PROFIBUS also received great support for its activities in form of various white papers of the ARC Advisory Group in which the advantages of PROFIBUS, among others in process automation, were confirmed. This study is now also available in the Chinese language. With the Chinese edition of the newsletter ?PROFINEWS?, an always up-to-date information medium is now available for the Chinese market for the first time.

Also new is the North American edition of ?PROFINEWS? which is specifically directed at the North-American market with additional regional information and applications.
