The theory covered the basics of PROFINET in terms timing, data exchange, the communication stack, infrastructure, GSDML files, etc., while in the practical, the delegates built a PROFINET Cable, created a PROFINET network, setup a controller using the TIA Portal from Siemens and did network analysis with Wireshark. Tools used in the practical include NETILITIES, ProfiTap Industrial and the Handheld PROFINET Cable Tester which are all from PROCENTEC.
The delegates will each receive an internationally recognised PROFINET certification and are entitled to claiming 3 CPD points from ECSA for attending the course. Feel free to contact the IDX Academy or PROFIBUS Competence Centre of South Africa if you would like more information on the courses.
