Diversity of our network stations based on equipment made by different manufacturers makes it possible for the participants to learn different installation and configuration methods for a variety of devices. Additionally, a number of interconnected network stations reflects as far as possible the actual field networks and provides students a unique opportunity to learn to diagnose and eliminate failures and errors occurring in the industrial field networks.Our Industrial Network Laboratoryis also equipped with SOFTING AG modern diagnostic devices for advanced industrial network diagnostics which are also widely used during the course.
STEP7: SIMATIC S7-300 is the most popular and the most commonly used PLC. It intended to be used with machine automation processes, in production lines and technological objects. SIMATIC S7-300 is a universal and modern automation system platform and enables constructing both autonomic and distributed control systems based on communication networks. Available communication interfaces PROFIBUS and Ethernet/PROFINET enable integrating controllers into a uniform production control system.
Configuration software is also supported by specialist software PROFIBUS Diagnostic Suite supplemented by PROFIBUS Tester instruments. It facilitates troubleshooting and analysis of the network’s operation by means of a range of parameter visualization tools (both physical parameters of the network and work parameters at the level of the communication protocol) presenting data in the form of visualizations, charts and diagrams.
Tutor of the courses in PROFIBUS DP diagnostics is the manager of over 20 implementation projects and technological start-ups. Projects supervised by him are based on the following controllers and process stations: Siemens (S7-200, S7300), ABB (AC500, AC700, AC800F, AC800M), Beckhoff (BX9000, CX1000, CX1020, C6920), Omron (CPM2, CP1Li H, CJ), ifm-electronic. SCADA systems : WinCC, Movicon and HMI. They have been implemented in companies operating in the metal, food, petrochemical and chemical industry.Our tutors are industrial representatives with long-standing experience:
