PROFIBUS Troubleshooting & Maintenance


The PROFIBUS Troubleshooting and Maintenance training course is fully concentrated on those who install and maintain PROFIBUS installations. A complete knowledge package is provided to you that can be put into practice immediately.



The participants will learn how to analyse, localise and solve a PROFIBUS problem. Theory about cabling, shielding, grounding, busparameters and measurement tools is the basis of this knowledge. With the help of practical exercises on real networks, the participants will put theory into practice. 

At the end of the training, the participants are directly capable to maintain and solve issues in PROFIBUS installations. They will have a strong theoretical foundation and are able to handle the necessary measurement tools, like ProfiTrace. 

OPTIONAL: Become a Certified PROFIBUS Installer!
