COURSE OVERVIEW

Today’s highly increasing competition needs high-quality goods with a competitive price and most consistent products. Industrial automation is one of the remarkable and influential measures in obtaining the solutions to the challenge described above. Industrial automation makes it easier to improve product quality, efficiency, and production rate while reducing production and design costs. Industrial automation uses control systems and equipment, such as computer software and robots to perform tasks that have traditionally performed manually.

This course is intended to offer engineers and technicians essential knowledge of Industrial Automation. Participants gain up to date theoretical and practical understanding of SCADA systems. It will provide an overview of modern digital communication standards and networks, starting at the fundamental RS232 standard right through to Modbus over TCP/IP. You will learn how to optimize their systems regarding safety, flexibility, and costs. The course also discusses modern radio links, ranging from the application to troubleshooting, and the use and selection of wireless link devices.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of the Fundamentals of Industrial Automation training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand various components of a SCADA system
  • Gain knowledge on basic principles of data communications
  • Assess the necessities for PLC-to-SCADA communications
  • Understand the importance of the ISO OSI model
  • Appreciate the use of wireless communications in the industrial environment
  • Recognize the various wireless communication standards
  • Practically apply radio telecommunications and make use of troubleshooting techniques
  • Understand the concept of Modbus/Serial and Modbus/TCP
  • Practically apply Modbus and make use of troubleshooting techniques
  • Understand modern SCADA applications and deployments

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is intended for those professionals involved in designing, installing, testing, operating and maintaining process instrumentation and control systems; Automation Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Consulting Engineers, Design Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Electricians, Instrument and Process Control Engineers and Technicians, Maintenance Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and Technicians, Operations Engineers and Process Engineers.

TRAINING METHODOLOGY

The latest educational methods and strategies are employed. The course is designed to not only give the required fundamental knowledge but also to provide a strong background for all attendees towards practical industrial applications. The course will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment. To ensure the concepts introduced during the course are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture-style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations, and group work.

Pre and Post-course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training and the pre and post skill and ability of participants.
