   June 24, 2014 - PI North America launched a pair of online forums on its us.profinet.com website. Both a PROFIBUS forum and a PROFINET forum are available to the general public to ask questions and seek answers. Moderated by the PROFIBUS and PROFINET experts at the PROFI Interface Center in Johnson City, TN, and supervised by PI North America, the forums will provide a centralized location to find answers. Aren’t sure how many devices per PROFIBUS segment? Trying to understand naming convention in PROFINET? Looking for a specific piece of documentation that you can’t seem to find? These are the types of questions we are prepared to answer for any and all users of the technologies.
