With the initial release of the FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus specifications, the demand for FOUNDATION conformant and interoperable devices has increased exponentially. End users have seen the benefits of fieldbus products demonstrated at trade shows and test sites, and have determined that FOUNDATION technology is the correct path to take with their plant control systems.
FOUNDATION Fieldbus presents new and unique challenges for both end users and manufacturers. Manufacturers must be confident with the technology such that they can meet both the demands and expectations of their end users. They need to be able to identify fieldbus applications and need to understand the requirements needed to install those applications on a fieldbus network. They should be confident to discuss the differences between fieldbus and existing technology used in control systems today. End users should be prepared for how FOUNDATION Fieldbus will affect their control system installation and operation.
This two-day course has been designed for end users, marketing professionals, applications engineers, system integrators, developers and others interested in obtaining a fundamental knowledge of FOUNDATION technology.
The FOUNDATION Certified course provides vendor neutral Fieldbus knowledge based on the System Engineering Guidelines (AG-181V3) prepared under the End User Advisory Council (EUAC) of the FieldComm Group for manufactures, contractors and end users of fieldbus enabled field devices and control systems. This course is also best suited for project engineers, control engineers, and all who wish to understand the key issues and procedures of field bus system engineering as introduction level.
The course has eight major goals.
The students will be provided with a workbook containing a copy of the presentation materials used during the workshop. Students will be awarded with the course completion certificate after a short test.
Background and Prerequisites
The course assumes little or no knowledge of FOUNDATION technology, but students should have a familiarization with process control. Students should already be acquainted with existing 4-20mA technology found in present day installations.
The outline of the course is as follows.
Throughout the course, live demonstrations using registered FOUNDATION products will be used to help emphasize the key features of FOUNDATION technology learned during the workshop.
