PROFIdrive and ENCODER Technology Workshop (International Edition!)

  • 05.03.2024

In the manufacturing and process industry, there are currently many trends and drivers in the direction of standardization, simplification, and intensive data exchange.


All this combined with best-in-class reliability, supervision, and monitoring functions and if necessary easy and fast exchange of components.


The PROFIdrive and ENCODER profiles of the PROFINET and PROFIBUS standards, both promoted by PI, take exactly all these industry requirements into account.

If you would like to learn more about this, join our PROFIdrive International Webinar.


This upcoming event will now be offered in English language and is thus also accessible to an interested international audience.


We cordially invite all interested persons to this event and will share insights into the advantages and benefits associated with the implementation and usage of the PROFIdrive and ENCODER profiles.


You will learn about the basics and functional structure of this technology and about the typical areas of application, but also how a corresponding profile can be implemented, tested, and ultimately certified in the best possible way.


The PI International PROFIdrive and ENCODER Technology Workshop will take place on 5th of March 2024.

A first session will take place from 8–11 am (ECT), and a second session with the same content will then be held in the afternoon from 4-7 pm (ECT).

So, everyone around the world can have a chance to join the workshop.
