Profibus Technical Forum offers hands-on experience

A unique Profibus Technology Forum will be held in Brisbane on September 16, 2009 at The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre South Bank.

The Profibus Association of Australia (PAA) has brought together a number of prominent industry experts who will share their views on Profibus’ recent developments, describe local applications of the technology, and discuss the latest products and solutions.

The Forum will be combined with a Technology Exhibition where PAA members will showcase their products and solutions in an interactive environment, demonstrating the power of Profibus at all levels of the plant.

The no-charge event is targeted at Design Engineers, Process Engineers, Electrical engineers, Instrument technicians, electricians, plant operators, and any professional that intends to implement Profibus in the near future.
