Profinet Technical Training 1This training course provides a detailed technical overview of the advantages PROFINET® Technology offers your automation and production processes.

Constantly a comparison with PROFIBUS® is made, which is the current standard and PROFINET® an interesting enhancement.

PROFINET® is using Industrial Ethernet as communication medium, which has a lot of myths and grey areas for a lot of users like: cabling, security, determinism and speed.

But there are more important aspects nobody is willing to answer: will maintenance activities change?, what happens when the cable has a disturbance?, the solution for process automation, investment costs and how many manufacturers are supplying products?

This training course will take a look at these issues so that the participant has confidence to evaluate himself if PROFINET® is an appropriate solution for his automation requirements.

All Topics will be finalized with a demonstration to get a direct link with the real world.

This event is hosted by our experts, who are constantly deployed worldwide to carry out projects and training sessions.

They can realistically inform you about the advantages and consequences of PROFINET® technology.

PROFINET® is an Industrial Ethernet standard for automation that includes plant-wide fieldbus communication, plant-to-office communication, and equipment-to-equipment integration.

PROFINET® can simultaneously handle standard TCP/IP and real-time transmissions at sub-millisecond speeds.

Using proxy technology it easily integrates PROFIBUS®, thus protecting the existing investments in plant equipment and networks.
