Industrial Data Communications - CNTR 103Learn more and register
This course will build on what you have learned in CNTR-125 Distributed Control Systems III, and cover a number of industrial process networks and well as network security.
Course will begin with the theory and structure of digital communications as it relates to Field Buses.
A review of Foundation Field Bus will be followed by other buses such as: Device Net, Profibus, Modbus, wireless, etc. Where possible we will be communicating to process devices, which will help us understand the configuration required, the protocol, wiring methods, and troubleshooting techniques.
The remainder of the course will be focusing on DCS networking, which will include fibre, routers, port mapping, security, etc. We will also be discussing virtualization as this is becoming more common, especially on larger DCS installations.
