Course Information

The course provides an in-depth view of the PROFIBUS network operation and its characteristics, covering the theoretical, practical and common pitfalls of PROFIBUS DP and PA network installation.

Using demonstration boards, which integrate a wide range of standard industrial devices, the student learns the basics of designing and wiring an active network, an in-depth analysis of the protocol and how to use diagnostic tools to detect and fix bus faults and packet analysers to identify more complex configuration errors.

The many ways to tailor a PROFIBUS network and device configuration using GSD & EDD files as well as DTM/FDT under various master configurations are examined.

PROFIBUS PA and its associated components are lightly introduced (see our PA course for more in-depth training on this subject).

Who should attend? Application engineers, system integrators, technical support/maintenance staff, project leaders, installers, suppliers

While the IDX Academy makes every effort to assist attendees in understanding the subject matter and associated concepts, the course time is limited and therefore the IDX Academy cannot be held responsible for attendees that fail to cope with the material covered.
