Successful debut in Italy for the IO-Link User Workshop

Great success for the Italian debut of the IO-Link User Workshop, the congress promoted by the IO-Link Consortium in order to spread the IO-Link knowledge. The event, which took place last 20th October at the Scientific and Technological Park Kilometro Rosso in Bergamo, near Milan, saw the participation of almost 200 people.
During the event, participants had the opportunity to understand the system IO-Link, the advantages for the users and to know how to select the more suitable products.
The workshop developed in 2 phases: in the morning, it has been offered a general theoretical presentation on IO-Link standard; in the afternoon, the speakers, with a more practical approach, let the participants know more about the point-to-point communication standardized with sensors and actuators and focused the attention on the components’ interaction (master, device, engineering and control) and on the different application possibilities.
Together with the workshop, there was a micro-fair with different booths, where sensors’ and actuators’ builders presented their solutions for IO-Link: Balluff, Bihl Wiedemann, Festo, ifm, IQ2 Development GmbH, Leuze Electronic, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, Schmalz, SICK, Siemens, Technologie Management Gruppe, Turck, Wago.
