Certified PROFIBUS Installer Training

Certified PROFIBUS Installer Training

What good is competent network design, if the installation of the PROFIBUS® network is not properly carried out?

The installation technicians need to know what they are doing.

This two-day course covers theory and practice for the physical layer of a PROFIBUS® DP/PA installation and suitable procedures and tools to check whether the network is working as well as it should.

The course ends with a test for certification from PROFIBUS® International (PI).

In many projects today the Certified PROFIBUS® Installer qualification is required before the technician is allowed to work on the network site.

Goals:

Need to be able to install, commission and troubleshoot the physical layer of PROFIBUS® DP and PA networks.

This course can help you avoid mistakes and save money in the installation phase of your project.
