Certified Training for PROFIBUS DP/PA Engineer
A hands-on course, recognized in all industries
Hands-on exercises will help you learn how PROFIBUS fieldbus technology works in detail. The emphasis is on PROFIBUS PA for the process automation industry. Features like system design and commissioning are topics, as well as diagnostics and troubleshooting. You may also combine this course with Certified Training for PROFIBUS DP Engineer for a complete 5-day training program.
The following content is covered in the theoretical part: PROFIBUS organization and structure, physical layer of PROFIBUS DP/PA, PROFIBUS components, device integration, diagnosis and status, parameters and configuration.
Token handling, cyclic and acyclic communication, FISCO and Ex concepts, cycle time calculation and bus parameters, identification and solving of communication problems.
PROFIBUS FDL (Fieldbus Data Link), function codes and service access points used in PROFIBUS DP, Token handling, FISCO and Ex concepts, cyclic and acyclic communication, cycle time calculation and bus parameters.
The following content is covered in the practical part: Wiring of a PA bus segment, commissioning with acyclic tools, cyclic communication and data handling, device Integration (ABB, Siemens, Rockwell, ...)
Signal measurement and evaluation with oscilloscope, handling of up-to-date bus analyzers, commissioning of demo plant, device replacement / troubleshooting.
Learn how to design and commission a PROFIBUS fieldbus network.
Understand the benefits of the technology and know the procedure for troubleshooting.
Who should attend?
Control and Instrumentation Engineers
Design and Planning Engineers
Service and Maintenance Engineers
Basic knowledge of computers, electronics and mathematics.
The training is internationally recognized and certified by the PROFIBUS organization.
Participants are given time to work with the various components of a PROFIBUS network.
We put emphasis on a balanced approach to theory and practice vendor-neutral instruction.
Mornings are spent learning the theoretical background, and afternoons with the actual components and integration of the field devices into the system. Almost half the course is spent giving you ample opportunity to use what you have learned in hands-on exercises.
