Technology User Organisations strengthened their presence at the SPS IPC Drives expo

Live demonstrations in focus

PROFIBUS & PROFINET International, the ODVA and the FDT Group were present again at the SPS IPC Drives expo in Nuremberg. The international trade fair for electrical automation, systems and components took place from November 22nd to 24th and encompassed the entire spectrum of automation technology. Endress+Hauser experts have been present on various user organisation stands.

 The umbrella organisation PROFIBUS & PROFINET International was on Stand 220/221 in Hall 2. Here Endress+Hauser PROFIBUS & PROFINET devices as well as their integration into Siemens systems have been shown on a newly designed demonstration wall. Additional highlights were the gateway Fieldgate SFG500 and FieldCare, Endress+Hauser’s software tool for device configuration and plant asset management. Typical use cases, which demonstrate the advantages of digital communication, completed the presentation.


Endress+Hauser’s growing EtherNet/IP device portfolio was demonstrated as a working application, cleaning in place (CIP), typical for the Food & Beverage and Life Sciences industries, which was showcased on the ODVA stand (Stand 458, Hall 2). A multi-vendor demonstration model impressively demonstrated how EtherNet/IP components could be seamlessly integrated into well-established systems.

The FDT Group showed the multitude ways in which FDT could be used in process and factory automation and includes FDI integration. The stand (Stand 550, Hall 2) also had Industry 4.0/IIOT in connection with OPC-UA as a focal point.

Endress+Hauser’s stand was in Hall4A, Stand 135.
