This free training is fully concentrated on ProfiTrace 2. The main goal is to master the ProfiTrace platform to be able to quickly identify; what is a good and what is a bad network?
In a full day the participants will learn how to use ProfiTrace in order to analyse, localise and solve PROFIBUS faults. With a hands-on approach the participants will put theory into practice.
