The Certified PROFIBUS Installer course is essential for electrical engineers and technicians requiring the necessary installation and testing skills for their PROFIBUS DP/PA projects. These technicians are often the final link in a project and are essential both during commissioning and throughout the life cycle of the installation.
PROFIBUS is a robust fieldbus. Nevertheless, many do not realize that it is a digital data communication system with its own specific guidelines. During the installation, problems are often a result of simple mistakes such as missing termination, the wrong cable being used, switched wires etc. This is why it is increasingly being demanded that only qualified installers carry out a project.
Once equipped with the knowledge of how to deal with a PROFIBUS network, you have the chance to meet these demands and to distinguish yourself from competitors who do not have certified installers. This will provide contractors with the assurance that the installation is being carried out by adept installers.
As a participant, you will learn how to analyze, localize and solve a PROFIBUS problem. Theory about cabling, shielding, grounding, bus parameters and measurement tools is the basis of this knowledge. With the help of practical exercises on real networks, the participants will put theory into practice.
The course takes two and a half days of practical sessions, theory, and half a day of exams. Upon successful completion, you will be directly capable of maintaining and solving issues in PROFIBUS installations. You will have a strong theoretical foundation and will be able to handle the necessary measurement tools, like ProfiTrace. You will be proud to hold the internationally recognized title of Certified PROFIBUS Installer.
This course is intended for everyone who is responsible for PROFIBUS cabling, maintenance and testing. For example:
