About the Course

One of the aims of the course is to cover the design of modern control systems that are maintainable and which minimise the impact of a control system and network failures that will inevitably occur during the lifetime of the plant. The aim is to minimise the footprint of failures in terms of restricting the extent of the effects of failures and also the time to locate and repair faults. 

The course also covers the use of some of the latest and most important developments to appear on the market, including new devices that provide permanent monitoring of networks and notification in the case of degradation or failure. The course applies to all sectors of industry from factory automation to process control. Examples and case studies used in the course are from a wide range of industries including manufacturing, process plant water-treatment, materials handling, and automated part sorting storage and retrieval. 

Course Duration

This course is completed in 3.5 days. It includes a theoretical and practical aspect. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion.

Prerequisites

The Certified PROFIBUS Installer certification is a prerequisite and
will be included in this course and can be considered as a refresher for those who have already obtained the certification.

It is most beneficial if the attendee has a technical qualification or good experience with or understanding of digital communications systems. Occasional exposure to cabling PROFIBUS networks has been found to be insufficient in preparing potential candidates.

Therefore, as a guideline, potential candidates must:

Have a good command of the English language

Be able to understand and interpret technical ideas and systems

Understand the basics of communications and what it entails

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.
