EtherCAT Seminar

5th Dec

EtherCAT Seminar

Sponsored by BECKHOFF, EtherCAT Technology Group are holding a free one day event focused on Industrial Ethenet and EtherCAT. Taking place on 5th December 2017 at the Centre For Modelling & Simulation, including speakers from EtherCAT, Beckhoff, AMRC and CFMS, the seminar is targeted towards five key individuals who are:

  • In charge of control and automation systems with machine builders and OEMs
  • Working with system integrators or design firms for machine builders or end users
  • Involved in application and controls design or product management
  • Interested to know the latest trends in industrial automation (such as IoT and Industry 4.0) and how fieldbus selection plays an important role.
  • Interested in application examples

 The seminar listed address end users, system integrators, OEMs, product managers, decision makers and device manufacturers to learn about EtherCAT, Industrial Ethernet, TNS and Safety. EtherCAT (which combines communication and power in one cable) will be presented as well. BECKOFF are delighted to welcome individuals to these events who are interested and curious to learn more.

Why Attend?

Experts' presentations from the EtherCAT Technology Group, the supporting ETG members and time for on-site networking and discussion with the experts provide attendants with a complete overview on benefits of EtherCAT, including Industrie 4.0 and TSN.
