PROFIBUSTrainingIt was standing room only at this year’s PROFIBUS Training Seminar in Greenville, SC where more than 85 end users, OEMs and system integrators were taken through a complete PROFIBUS DP project applying PROFIBUS to discrete and process automation while introducing PROFINET as an all-encompassing Industrial Ethernet standard.

Our Lumberg Automation brand introduced a complete end-to-end distributed I/O solution including a new PROFINET IO module that will be available in June 2012 and its increasingly popular line of PROFIBUS LioN-Link distributed IO systems.

I was talking to Ray DiVirgilio, our Industrial Connectivity Solutions Manager, and he had some interesting insights on this training and our system. He said that this is the best technical training anyone can receive to implement a complete PROFIBUS DP system. He also pointed out that our end-to-end connectivity solution is unparalleled – meaning no other one company can deliver the breadth of products required to implement a complete PROFIBUS system without reaching out to other third party vendors. That’s a pretty significant feather in our cap.

Lumberg Automation manufactures the industry’s broadest selection of PROFIBUS DP and PROFINET products including distributed IO modules, cables, cord sets, terminating resistors, splitters, receptacles and field attachable connectors. We’re proud to be a market leader in providing engineers the products and services required to implement a complete PROFIBUS DP or PROFINET IO discrete or process automation system (excluding PLCs).

Whether your project is small or large, we have you connected. Lumberg Automation is an official Training Sponsor of the North American PROFIBUS Trade Organization. Take a look at their website and let us know how important quality training is to you.
