About the event

PROFINET is rapidly becoming the network of choice for communications in Industrial automation But how is it different from conventional ethernet, what precautions must I take when installing it, how do I commission and support it moving forward? Answers to these and many other questions you may have will be provided during this two-introductory course to PROFINET. Starting with the basics of Ethernet, the course progresses through to PROFINET, how it should be correctly installed in an industrial environment and suggestions for installation qualification of your network. The second day is spent building a PROFINET network comprising of a PLC, several PROFINET IO devices and switches from several manufacturers. This is then followed by defining the operational qualification for a PROFINET network and the tools available to perform this task and on-going support of a PROFINET network.
