PROFIBUS User Training
at your premises

Content PROFIBUS training

Objectives of the training

Take the opportunity to conduct practice-oriented training at your premises. Don't hesitate to ask for an appointment at your convenience.

Within 2.5 days you will be qualified in the theory and practice of PROFIBUS DP. Optionally, the training can be extended by additional practical training day(s).

The content of the training is structured so that all participants from the departments planning, commissioning, maintenance and service irrespective of their prior level of knowledge can be made acquainted with the subject in a straightforward manner. All theoretical discourses are linked directly with practical requirements.

Target Group

Employees from the departments planning, commissioning, maintenance and service.


The training is structured so that all participants become acquainted with the subject of PROFIBUS in a straightforward manner. Basic knowledge of industrial automation is recommended.


  • Introduction
    PI / PNO – common basis of our teamwork, Fieldbus – logical development of the automation technology, Joint project PROcessFIeldBUS, ISO/OSI (Open Systems Interconnection – reference model)
  • Technical Guidelines
    Laying and installation standards according to IEC 61158, IEC 61784, Guidelines and recommendations of the PROFIBUS User Organisation (PNO), VDI/VDE 2184 Guidelines "Reliable operation and maintenance of fieldbus systems"
  • Theoretical Basics
    Principle of physical transmission (physical layer), RS 485 PROFIBUS DP and IEC 1158-2 PROFIBUS PA, Communication in PROFIBUS – the master-slave principle, Logical data communication: Protocol structure, backup mechanisms, sequence of cyclical and acyclical data communication
  • EMC & Equipotential Bonding
    Taking EMC interferences already into consideration during planning phase, Detecting and eliminating EMC weak points in existing installations (functionality of a shield, functionality of equipotential bonding, ways of coupling if there are disturbances)
  • Installation and Assembly
