Basic PID Control Course

Image
IDX will again be hosting Andy Verwer from the UK to present the Three-Term or PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) Basic Course in Johannesburg, South Africa. The training is aimed at technicians, engineers and programmers who are involved in the operation, implementation and tuning of feedback controllers in a wide variety of applications and industries. Many different aspects of feedback control systems are covered so that the training will benefit a wide range of needs. For example, if you need to:
Apply quantitative feedback control to real processes and machinery,Improve the performance or tune controllers in their plant,Implement three-term controllers in their programmable control systems (PLCs and DCS systems),Identify problems and the causes of poor control performance.The training will run over the course of two days and is for those who have little or no previous experience with feedback control. This module takes the trainee up to the stage where they can tune a simple f…

FREE ProfiTrace & COMbricks Training

FREE ProfiTrace & COMbricks Training Once you know the basics of PROFIBUS, come learn how to effectively troubleshoot PROFIBUS networks with ProfiTrace from PROCENTEC. In this course, we also go through the PROCENTEC range of network components to learn how to make your network robust with repeaters, hubs and active terminators. Want to know what’s going on with your network health when you’re not connected with ProfiTrace? We will show you how to permanently monitor your network with COMbricks and show you how to establish a remote connection into COMbricks so that you can monitor your PROFIBUS network from anywhere in the world!
What's covered in the training?  Network components (connectors, hubs, etc)Correct wiring of repeaters and hubsSetup and connection of ProfiTraceConfigure a network using ProfiCaptainCreate common network faultsAnalyse faults using live list and statisticsRecord and analyse PROFIBUS MessagesAnalyse signal waveforms and strengthsGeneration of reportsInst…
