Industrial Automation: Network Diagnostics Workshops

Hitex are delighted to be hosting a free 1-day workshop covering both PROFINET and PROFIBUS diagnostics in Manchester. The day will be hosted by Dave Tomlin, the Hitex Automation Specialist.

The agenda will have 2 main focuses: the morning will look at PROFIBUS: the basics, tools and techniques for diagnostics and the afternoon will cover the same topics but for PROFINET. Throughout the day our automation expert will be on hand to talk about any issues you may have and how to keep your network in top condition. As anyone involved with keeping an industrial network up and running knows, this is a never-ending task – a little like painting the Forth Road Bridge!

While we will be looking at products for permanent monitoring, diagnostics and installation (including TH link PROFIBUS and PROFINET and the PROFIBUS Tester) we will also be covering general best practice advice so you gain maximum benefit from attending.

Additionally, the agenda will be brought to a close with a dedicated Q&A session to ensure you have the chance to start to resolve any specific issues and get the most possible from your time with us.
