A Certified PROFIBUS System Design course was held last week in Cardiff, Wales for Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water Supplier’s Alliance. Eleven Engineers from Arcadis Consultancy, Ove Arup Partners, Mott MacDonald and Morgan Sindall attended the four days of training which comprised the Certified PROFIBUS Installer and Certified PROFIBUS System Design courses. The training was organised by Anthony Hitchen, Associate Electrical Technical Director at Arcadis Consulting and delivered by Andy Verwer of VTC.

This course was organised to provide the Alliance Partners with the knowledge and competence to provide cost effective network designs which optimise performance and availability. The course covers overall network design and layout and covers how best to provide reliable and maintainable systems which use DP and PA technology, copper and fibre optic communication. The course covers the techniques for designing networks for a range of environments and applications including hazardous environments and functional safety. A major part of the course is the implementation and analysis of high availability systems and how to use features like redundancy and duty/standby systems appropriately.

Some of the comments received from attendees include:
