Plug into Industrial Ethernet Protocols

Plug into Industrial Ethernet Protocols : Industrial Ethernet protocols can be standard and unmodified, or modified to be industrially hardened. Perspectives from protocol proponents clarify needs for various implementations.

Interest in learning is alive and well in the Detroit area. Despite an economic downturn, industrial automation professionals see the value in expanding their skills. PTO (formerly the Profibus Trade Organization) announced that its 2009 Profinet training class schedule began with record attendance at its March 11, 2009, training class. Over 130 engineers, autoworkers, system integrators and end-users gathered at the Detroit Marriott in Troy, MI, to learn the value of Profinet as an Industrial Ethernet standard.
Training was provided by professionals from the PTO and the Profi Interface Center and showcased the newly redesigned “hands-on” training format. Unlike other training classes, attendees learned about Profinet through the exploration of real world examples and architectures.
“Detroit was the perfect venue to unveil the newest version of our Profinet Training Class,” said Carl Henning, deputy director of the PTO. “Audience was filled with professionals with years of industrial automation experience, and many asked when the PTO would be conducting the next class in the Michigan area…. despite an economic downturn, industrial automation professionals see the value in expanding their skills to be ready for the future.”
The technical training covers solving real-world problems with Profinet Industrial Ethernet, says Hunter Harrington, Profinet training class chief instructor. Harrington says that in today’s challenging job market, engineers and system integrators need to continually improve their skills and expose themselves to new technologies to maintain their competitive edge.
