PROFIBUS Fault-finding Services and ProfiTrace Training
In addition to PROFIBUS equipment we also offer PROFIBUS network design, installation and commissioning advice, and support this with on-site network audit and fault-finding services, frequently in response to urgent requests for help.
Although many of our ProfiTrace customers have seen the kit before and been trained in its use, many are totally new to the equipment and software and may well be interested in experienced help with getting the kit up and running quickly.
For these customers we offer personal delivery of the ProfiTrace kit to your site, with comprehensive ProfiTrace User Training. This includes help in getting the software installed on your computers and training of your engineers in how to start and use it quickly and effectively. We including brief, but focussed, sessions on related PROFIBUS essentials. We include lots of examples of how this kit may be successfully used for both new system commissioning and fault-finding tasks. These courses are run on an intensive full day basis, with afternoon session mostly focussed on practical work, possibly including supervised audit or trouble-shooting by your staff on any locally available systems to help consolidate their new skills and develop confidence in their normal working environment.
Our ProfiTrace training covers set-up and operation of the ProfiTrace toolset for small groups of installation and maintenance engineers, covering any of the following topics :- ProfiTrace software installation, software licence issues, getting started, Live Lists, Messages, Station Statistics, Data Value Inspection, ScopeWare, Bar-graphs, Topology Scan, ProfiCaptain, GSD Files, ProfiTrace Reports and ProfiTrace OPC Server. Such courses assume at least basic background knowledge of the PROFIBUS network design rules, wiring practice, segment termination and PROFIBUS message protocols – if needed we can help to arrange more formal training for these topics too, specifically including the one day Certified PROFIBUS Installers Course.
In addition to demonstrations and training in the use of ProfiTrace, we can help with inspection of your new or operational networks to check waveform quality, network layout details and for any message failure statistics that may point to weaknesses.
