Technews Publishing (publisher of SA Instrumentation and Control) is proud to announce that together with the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG), it will organise a series of breakfast seminars in South Africa during October.
The free-of-charge seminars focus explicitly on the EtherCAT technology and its applications including a detailed introduction as well as user-oriented presentations covering topics from installation and troubleshooting, through smooth transitioning from classical fieldbus systems to EtherCAT. All seminar content relates intensively to the practical use of EtherCAT, as well as the relevant benefits of the technology.
The events will be accompanied by a tabletop exhibition taking place in parallel to the seminars. Here, supporting companies will show and explain their individual EtherCAT applications and products.
This presentation has been accredited and delegates will earn 0.5 CPD points.
The South African seminars mainly address machine builders, OEMs and system integrators. The seminars are free of charge to all attendees. Endorsed by the SAIMC (Society for Automation, Instrumentation, Measurement and Control)
In line with the SAIMC's objective of elevating the profile of bus technologies in South Africa, the SAIMC is proud to endorse the 2018 EtherCAT Breakfast Seminars. The EtherCAT technology is a very cost effective solution with fantastic performance. Such bus technologies are essential for the improvement and optimisation of manufacturing operations in our region. In the medium to long-term, this is a key enabler for Industry 4.0 and all the benefits that can potentially be realised by harnessing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the Big Data that this type of technology brings.
With over 4700 member companies from 65 countries, the EtherCAT Technology Group has become the world's largest fieldbus organisation since its foundation in 2003. Within the ETG, key end-users from various industries and leading automation suppliers join forces to support, promote and advance the EtherCAT technology.
