PROFINET developer community to meet at Plugfest in Düsseldorf

PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) cordially invites all developers of device, controller, and tool solutions to the next PROFINET Plugfest to be held in Düsseldorf on June 24-25. The host of this Plugfest is Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH, a well-known provider of semiconductors for PROFINET integration.

The status of various implementations will be tested with an emphasis on IRT in a variety of systems ranging from smaller systems up to a large shared network. The PROFINET Plugfest thus offers participating companies a unique opportunity for exchange of real-world experience and easy testing of interoperability in a multi-vendor environment.

The first Plugfest held in Leipzig in 2013 (hosted by port GmbH) on the topic of diagnostics attracted more than 60 participants. Based on the positive experience from that event, we invite all PI members to actively participate in this project on June 24 and 25 and to share their experience with the community and promote their own device development.

Registration for the event is now open at
