Certified Training for PROFIBUS 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.
The following content is covered in the theoretical part: PROFIBUS organization and structure, physical layer of PROFIBUS 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.
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.
At the end of the course you will be able to design and commission a PROFIBUS fieldbus network. You will also understand the benefits of the technology and know the procedure for troubleshooting. The emphasis is placed on PROFIBUS PA.
The training is internationally recognized and certified by the PROFIBUS organization.
Who should attend?
Control and Instrumentation
Design and Planning Engineers
Service and Maintenance Engineers, Installers
Basic knowledge of computers, electronics and mathematics.
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.
