IO-Link Wireless Developer Workshop in Hamburg [English language]

Date: June 27-28, 2018

IO-Link Wireless defines wireless communication between sensors/actuators and controllers (PLC) in the field of industrial automation. Performance and functionality are comparable to wired solutions. Would you like to know …who can provide development support?… how you can develop an IO-link Wireless Device?… which tools and aids are available?

The IO-Link Wireless Workshop provides answers to these questions. In application-oriented presentations, you get a compact overview of this enabling technology for industry 4.0. Comprehensive live demonstrations and hands-on sessions demonstrate the “easy to use” IO-Link Wireless system with associated hardware and software solutions. During the presentation of innovative and interoperable technologies, you will receive valuable information on your specific application in a personal dialogue with specialists.

PROFINET Technology Workshop in Mainz

Date: June 6, 2018

So that PROFINET implementation can be made simple and efficient for all companies, several solution providers will explain their corresponding development environments. The aim of the workshop is to learn about how to develop a PROFINET product and to identify implementation options.

Certified PROFIBUS Installer in Manchester

Dates: July 10, 2018; September 24, 2018

PI-certified training presented by qualified instructors at the PI UK Competence Centre, The School of Engineering Automation Systems Centre, Manchester Metropolitan University. This one-day, hands-on course teaches the design, installation, and testing of complete PROFIBUS networks including DP, PA, and optical fiber technology. Covering bus layout and termination, grounding rules and practices, the course will teach delegates how to avoid common, but potentially expensive, installation problems.

PROFIBUS Commissioning and Maintenance Course in Manchester

Dates: July 11, 2018; September 25, 2018

A one-day course designed as a follow up to the Certified PROFIBUS Installer Course, which is in most cases pre-requisite to signing up for this course. Techniques taught in the course include the use of a modern PROFIBUS analyzer 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.

There is also an option to combine both of the above courses HERE

Certified PROFIBUS System Design in Manchester

Date: June 13, 2018

An intense course with a preparatory textbook and online preparation covering the optimal design of networked automation and control systems. Centred on PROFIBUS technology, but also covers the use of PROFINET, AS-i, HART, 4-20 mA and IO-Link technologies.
