SPS/IPC/Drives, the growing "special interest" Electrical Automation show, is heading for another run on Nov. 27-29. Five exhibition halls at Nürnberg's Exhibition Center will be used for the first time to accommodate the event.

Besides the show's mainstays of PLC/industrial PC technologies and electric drives, SPS/IPC/Drives will focus on wider, related areas—from a systems viewpoint, but without neglecting components. Other technologies covered include fieldbuses, communications, software for control and visualization, sensors, and information technology IT integration.

More than 690 exhibitors are expected to occupy 40,000 m2(430,000 ft2) of display area, among them 133 new exhibitors, as of August 2001. Last year, 643 exhibiting companies used 33, 400 m2of space. Among automation market leaders present will be ABB , Danaher Motion , Mitsubishi Electric , Omron , Rockwell Automation , Siemens , and Wonderware .

Twin conferences are key offerings of the event. An IT & Automation conference, started in 2000, will run in parallel with the main conference to offer presentations by industry experts on linking management and production. The main SPS/IPC/Drives conference will bring together expert presenters on themes and issues of automation and electric drives technologies. The programs will be presented in German.
