Your drive and automation devices communicate using PROFINET or PROFIBUS DP. If there are errors in communication, various causes need to be considered, such as unsuitable cabling, faulty plug contacts, incorrect parameterization or electromagnetic influences. Sporadic errors are particularly difficult to investigate.
In this course, you will learn how to troubleshoot using integrated diagnostics functions and how to remedy these faults. You will be get to know the appropriate measures to ensure continuously reliable operation. For complicated cases, you will know how to use special measuring devices to identify the cause of faults.
