TRAININGin DCS & Batch Controllers
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).
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 lesson introduces the general maintenance requirements of a distributed control system . It covers troubleshooting techniques using DCS self-diagnosis and the various diagnostic displays available to the technician as well as safe and proper component replacement procedures for cards, modules and power supplies.
