TRAININGin HMI & Operator Interfaces
This course recognises that maintenance personnel cannot build up a profound technical knowledge of all the equipment to be maintained. One needs to have sufficient knowledge of the equipment, coupled with knowledge of the installation to be able to diagnose the problem and then solve the problem.
This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA-62443 (formerly ISA99) standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural & technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments & those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
This FREE one-day training class prepares the student to apply PROFINET in his own project. Lunch is included. Technical details of the technology are provided along with practical demonstrations. The class is designed for End Users, OEMs, System Integrators and Manufacturers of automation devices. Each student will receive a certificate for 5.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH).
