Product Description

Hands-on PROFINET Troubleshooting & Maintenance Classes.

Grid Connect has teamed with PROCENTEC in The Netherlands to provide this unique training opportunity at the following locations:    

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are no planned in-person courses at this time.  Please contact us to discuss options for virtual training.



The workshop is designed for those who install and maintain PROFINET installations. For many factory and automation personnel, PROFINET introduces new IT concepts and terminology which work counter to their experiences with other non-Ethernet based fieldbuses.

With a mixture of theory and practical hands-on exercises, students will learn and practice the skills needed for PROFINET installations.

  • Understand PROFINET and Industrial Ethernet concepts, network components, cabling, and grounding and shielding.
  • Find and isolate problems fast.
  • Maintain, strategically isolate, analyze and solve complex problems.
  • Use the latest troubleshooting tools including Mercury, Wireshark, and Netilities.



The classroom network gives students a safe environment to experiment and learn with different types of situations. By introducing problems and practicing PROFINET troubleshooting in a live installation the participants are given ample opportunities to see these problems first hand. By means of practical exercises on real networks, the participants will put theory into practice.


Theory Topics:

  • Overview of PROFINET
  • Basic Principals of Industrial Ethernet TCP/IP

PROFINET is an Industrial Ethernet standard for automation that includes plant-wide fieldbus communication, plant-to-office communication, and equipment-to-equipment integration. PROFINET can simultaneously handle standard TCP/IP and real-time transmissions at sub-millisecond speeds. Using proxy technology it easily connects to PROFIBUS; thus protecting the existing investments in plant equipment and networks.
