Practical Aspects of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in Process and Factory Automation

Free-to-attend seminars addressing the key practical issues arising from the use of digital communications in industrial and process automation.

Seminar session
  • Strathclyde, 1/2 April 2014
Organised by The PROFIBUS Group these free-to-attend seminars are the perfect introduction to both PROFIBUS and PROFINET, presenting delegates an ideal opportunity to network with experts and other users. They consist of easy-to-understand presentations supported by live demonstrations of actual tools used in installation, configuration and maintenance. There is also a table-top exhibition of related products.
Intended to help beginners and existing users, the events will be of great value to Designers, Production Engineers and System Engineers and maintenance personnel involved in design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories, machinery and process plant.

Special Rewards for Attendees

The  PROFIBUS International Competence Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University has recently published 2 new textbooks entitled PROFIBUS in Practice. Written by Dr Xiu Ji, Principal Lecturer, these are excellent study guides for anyone serious about correct installation and commissioning of systems. All attendees to these free seminars will be able to take away with them a free copy of one of these highly informative books, either Vol 1 on Installation or Vol 2 on System Engineering, Troubleshooting and Maintenance
There will also be a special offer of discounted Membership of The PROFIBUS Group – attendees at the event will be entitled to claim a 10% discount from the first year’s subscription and pay no joining fee, a saving of at least £150 on the usual cost!

Practical Aspects of PROFIBUS & PROFINET in Process 

This seminar addresses the key practical issues arising from the use of digital fieldbus communications technologies in process and hybrid industries. Covering the use of PROFIBUS PA and PROFINET in key application areas such as Pulp & Paper, Chemical, Utilities, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas today, it focuses on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS in process industry applications from system design and hazardous area considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding.
