FIRST-CLASS TRAINING COURSES IN INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION

Are you looking for training in PROFIBUS, PROFINET, OPC communications, remote access, condition monitoring and other areas from the field of industrial automation? We'll be happy to share our extensive experience with you. FOXON has been involved with industrial automation since 2006.

Our trainers, who are field technicians and application engineers, are faced with everyday problems on our customers' premises. This allows them to gain detailed insight into the issues related to the deployment of all the systems and products they give training in. That's why our courses offer much more than theoretical training. You're given a lot of information about particular cases, which helps you put this information to good use on your factory floor.

Basic information about our training courses:

Topics

The Basics of PROFIBUS & PROFIBUS Diagnostics, 2 Days

In this course, you'll learn the basics of PROFIBUS DP/PA network management and diagnostics using the cutting-edge ProfiTrace2 analyser from the company PROCENTEC. The course takes roughly 6 hours and includes both the theory and above all practice of PROFIBUS management and diagnostics. It's open to a maximum of 10 participants.

The Basics of PROFINET & PROFINET Diagnostics, 2 Days

All PROFINET components are susceptible to wear and are by nature growing obsolete. That's why they require regular predictive maintenance. This course aims to introduce you to the basics of PROFINET communications and diagnostics, and the tools for assessing and improving the quality of these communications.

OPC Communications

Efficient monitoring of technologies and production in every plant relies on an all-in-one method of data collection and processing. One of the most popular communication protocols for this purpose, which enables data exchange between diverse systems, is the OPC protocol. In the past few years, not only the protocol but key components of these communications – OPC servers – have been refined. Some people work with OPC communications in most of their projects. This course is for those who have met OPC on their plant floor, but haven't had a chance to learn more about it.

Remote Access & Data Collection

To ensure fast response in the event of a machine failure, device suppliers and electrical maintenance engineers often need to access their systems remotely. One of the fastest and most reliable solutions for remote access is eWON industrial routers. Apart from providing remote access, they collect and process data. Sign up for this course to learn more about them!

FOXON Academy Tour

As part of our annual workshop tour, we're delighted to meet you in Budapest, where you can learn the latest news about OPC communications. In this workshop, you'll be given answers to these questions:
How do you collect data in a standardised way so that it can be transferred to higher systems?
What's the latest news about and the most common problems with the deployment of OPC servers?

Feel free to request our price quote. It'll include:

  • All-day refreshments

Venue

The FOXON Academy Training Centre is based at FOXON s.r.o., Česká 615/25, Liberec – Vesec. The centre is designed in such a way that it facilitates theoretical as well practical instruction. It boasts panels with industrial automation products, showing how these products operate on the factory floor. These panels enable us to give demonstrations of various products and setups. In addition, the centre features special kits designed for testing and training purposes.

Our courses are open to a maximum of 8 participants unless stated otherwise. This number reflects our intention to be able to cater for individual needs and offer personalised training. Courses take roughly 5–6 hours and are divided into three sessions, with a coffee break and a lunch break between them. Training is given only when two or more participants attend.

The OPC UA communications standard has made OPC communications much easier to use. We're seeing an increasing number of devices with an integrated OPC UA server, which enable such systems as HMI SCADA, MES and ERP to collect data directly from them. Yet there are also disadvantages. Let's look at what OPC UA is all about and why you still can't do without a classic OPC server on your computer.

On 21st March 2019, Prague saw the Award Ceremony for the IT Project of 2018, a contest run by the organisation CACIO (Czech IT Directors Association). First prize went to our FIOT Smart Maintenance project in ŠKODA AUTO a.s. We would like to express our warmest thanks to CACIO and above all to ŠKODA AUTO for being such an excellent partner. Read on to learn more about the project.

CASE STUDIES - 02/18/2019

FOXON has developed a wireless data collection solution for ŠKODA AUTO Mladá Boleslav. It's already been implemented in three of its plants. We're going to show you what problems in the plants our solution helped to solve and how. You're going see that it's suitable for small applications as well.
