Covering the practical techniques of faultfinding on ‘operational’ PROFIBUS networks.
Techniques taught on the course include the use of a modern PROFIBUS analyser and Class-I and Class-II master functions (engineering tools such as ProfiTrace) to diagnose network faults, device faults and I/O problems. Students also learn how to use a soft digital storage oscilloscope in conjunction with these tools to diagnose and accurately locate cable, connection and device faults.
