A complete knowledge package is provided that can be put into practice immediately.

The participants will learn how to analyse, localise and solve a PROFIBUS® problem.

Theory about cabling, shielding, grounding, busparameters 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.

At the end of the training, the participants are directly capable to maintain and solve issues in PROFIBUS® installations.

They will have a strong theoretical foundation and are able to handle the necessary measurement tools.

The theory about cabling, shielding busparametres and measurement tools is at the base of this course.
