embedded world: POWERLINK exhibition success

(PresseBox) (Eggelsberg, ) At the beginning of March, the embedded world 2012 exhibition came to an end after achieving two new records: The number of visitors increased by 17% to 22,262 and the number of international exhibitors increased by 9% to 872. This made the 10th embedded world exhibition the largest in the event's history. Stefan Schönegger - general manager of the Ethernet Powerlink Standardization Group (EPSG) - attributes the growth of the exhibition to the fact that industrial automation was added as an additional highlight. A greatly increased number of exhibitors in this field was proof of this positive development.

"The EPSG booth was extremely well attended. Not only that, many other users and suppliers of this open industrial Ethernet real-time technology reported a high level of interest for POWERLINK and openSAFETY at their own booths," stated Stefan Schönegger in summary. "embedded world has become another important exhibition for the EPSG, from both a technical as well as a commercial point of view."
