This course provides an in-depth view of PROFIBUS PA
fundamentals and its characteristics, with a special focus on PA network design details.

Using demonstration boards, which integrate a wide range of standard PA devices, the student is taken through the basics of wiring an active network, analysis of the protocol changes for PA, PA network design and device selection, the application of EDD/FDT technologies, and PA application in hazardous environments.

The lessons build upon each other in a way that the depth of the course steadily intensifies while core topics are addressed.
