Certified PROFIBUS Installer Training

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. Theory
