Fieldbus safety & security

In response to recent concerns, the PROFIBUS Group has developed a free-to-attend one-day seminar addressing important safety and security issues arising from the use of digital communications technologies in automated manufacturing and advanced engineering applications.

The British Profibus Group celebrated 20 years!
Presented at the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Coventry (GB), on April 23, 2013, the seminar will cover key application areas such as packaging, printing, electrical and electronics assembly, robotics, automotive engineering, drives, mechanical handling and logistics, control systems and energy management, focusing on the safety aspects of system design and operations.

Supported by live demonstrations and case studies the seminar will be of great value to Designers, Production Engineers and System Engineers involved in design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and machinery.

The seminar will be presented by safety and fieldbus specialists Stephen Park and Harriet Gibbons of BAe, Derek Lane of Wago, Mark Freeman, Peter Brown and Ian Curtis of Siemens Automation & Drives. Topics to be addressed include:
  • PROFIBUS and Intrinsic Safety
  • Basics of Functional Safety Standards
  • The Basics of PROFIsafe
  • Simple good practice for Industrial IT Security
  • Safety strategy for C&I Systems
  • Security and its application to C&I networks
  • PROFIsafe security considerations
Attendance is free of charge to pre-registered delegates from the User community, i.e. companies that own, operate, design, build or maintain automated plant.
