Maintaining PROFIBUS and PROFINET reliability despite modern industrial environments
A one-day training course by PROFIBUS and PROFINET expert Peter Thomas (Control Specialists Ltd), and EMC expert Keith Armstrong (Cherry Clough Consultants Ltd), organised by EMC Exhibitions & Training Ltd.
Reliability despite modern industrial environments.
EMI is rapidly increasing in modern industry due to the increasing use of high-efficiency switching power conversion in DC power supplies, motor drives, HVAC and lighting. To continue to ensure the reliability of PROFIBUS and PROFINET networks despite this EMI their cable screens need low impedance connections to ground at both ends.
This training course provides all the necessary information, plus many other practical techniques for reducing EMI in PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems.
