Richard Wyman has worked for over 20 years as a control systems engineer with the petroleum and utility industries. as the project manager and technical lead, he recently completed the installation of a large distributed SCaDa system. this innovative SCaDa system has extensive redundancy built in and supports multiple control centres. Prior to his career as a control systems engineer, Richard supported a variety of offshore oil and gas exploration programs as a drilling engineer in australia, Singapore, malaysia, Canada and brazil.

In addition to his technical expertise Richard has given presentations on controls and communications at several professional conferences including entelec, Distrubtech and the american Water Works association's Information management & technology conference.

Richard is an enthusiastic and experienced instructor with a wealth of knowledge and practical experience who will transfer the key concepts to you in an effective manner.

the workshoP

the objective of this workshop is to help delegates identify, prevent and fix common industrial data communication problems. the focus is "outside the box" with the emphasis on practicals that go beyond the typical communications issues and theories. the workshop provides delegates with the necessary toolkit of skills to solve industrial data communication problems, whether they are RS-232/RS-485, modbus, fieldbus and Devicenet or a local area network (lan), such as ethernet.

Industrial communications systems are installed throughout plants. Communications problems range from simple wiring problems to the intermittent transfer of protocol messages.

the communications system on a plant effects the entire operation. It is critical that you have the knowledge and tools to quickly identify and fix problems as they occur to ensure you have a secure system. no compromise is possible here. this workshop distils all the tips and tricks learnt with the benefit of many years of experience.

typical faults are discussed in depth with a focus on troubleshooting.

The fee for each workshop covers all materials including workshop manual, lunches and refreshments

PrACtiCAl sessions

this is a practical, hands-on workshop enabling you to work through exercises which reinforce the concepts discussed. this workshop includes over 30 practical fixes for RS-232/RS-485/industrial protocols/aSI bus/Devicenet systems methodology given with real world examples, and over 40 troubleshooting tips for Profibus/foundation fieldbus/ethernet and tCP/IP.

to gain full value from this workshop, please bring your laptop/notebook computer.

free referenCe mAnuAl as a hard-copy and eBook (VAlUed At $167.90)

Our attendees don’t just receive photocopied notes!

You will receive a comprehensive fully illustrated reference manual filled with hundreds of pages of tables, charts, figures and handy hints.
