Please join Dr. Imtiaz Madni, EIT Lecturer, to gain an overview of the significant field of industrial data communications and its key factors.

Industrial data communication is characterized by its operating environment. Electromagnetic interference (EMI), long distances and physical barriers set industrial communications apart from typical business office requirements. Conventional equipment usually lacks the versatility to adapt to the unique requirements of data monitoring and process control. With so many different standards in practice today, the debate is not about what is the best (for example: Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus, Devicenet or Industrial Ethernet), but rather about selecting the most appropriate technologies and standards for a given application and then ensuring that best practice is followed in designing, installing and commissioning the data communications links to ensure they run fault-free.

During this webinar, we will discuss the basics of industrial data communication and networking, including OSI model and TCP/IP based networks and where to safely use an industrial web intranet.

Join us to learn more at this must-attend event for engineering professionals and aspiring engineers alike.
