THE COURSE

The internet has made a substantial impact on the way we do business, as well as the plant and factory environment. One of the great protocols inherited from the internet is TCP/IP, which is used by most present-day automation and process control systems. SCADA systems, Programmable Logic Controllers and even low level instruments are using TCP/IP and Ethernet to transfer information. TCP/IP and Ethernet are truly open standards, available to competing manufacturers and providing the user with a common standard at low cost.

This online course covers the main aspects of TCP/IP and Ethernet in detail, including the practical implementation of TCP/IP in computer and industrial areas and the practical use of the internet and intranets. You will learn to troubleshoot and maintain TCP/IP networks and communication systems in an office and industrial environment.

The course is designed to give you a superb fundamental grounding in TCP/IP and the internet, as it is applied to industrial automation and process control. The objective is to provide a useful and practical toolbox of skills that can be applied immediately to your plant or facility.

 

YOU WILL GAIN

  • A practical understanding of what TCP/IP is and how to apply it
  • How to construct a robust Local Area Network (LAN)
  • The basic skills to effectively troubleshoot TCP/IP and LANs
  • How to improve the performance of a network
  • How to set up an intranet
  • How to connect your LAN or intranet to the internet
  • How to apply appropriate network management tools

 

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

  • Four 50 minute live, practical sessions with your instructor and attendees
  • The full technical eBook manual for “Practical TCP/IP and Ethernet Networking for Industry” which includes course slides, cases studies, calculations and practical exercises
  • Four hours of additional in-depth video sessions covering many additional areas – yours to keep and watch at your convenience

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone designing, installing, commissioning, maintaining or troubleshooting TCP/IP, and intra/internet sites will benefit, including:

  • Design engineers
  • Electrical engineers
  • Engineering managers
  • Instrumentation engineers
  • Network engineers
  • Network system administrators
  • Technicians

 

PRE-REQUISITES:

A basic knowledge of industrial communications and applications will be useful.
