Remote IO for Process Automation (RIO for PA)



In process automation complex requirements such as self-monitoring and diagnostics are not yet standardized for Remote IO. To implement a user-friendly solution, a manufacturer-independent "RIO for PA" profile for peripheral systems based on PROFINET / PROFIBUS and the PA Devices V4.0 profile must be defined and standardized.


This working group is looking for specialists from system and device manufacturers who want to work on the topic "RIO for PA". All interested member companies are invited to work on the topic.
