Fieldbus Center offers training course for power and wire installers
The Fieldbus Center at Lee College, Baytown, Texas, is offering a Foundation fieldbus training course for power and wire installers. The two-day course covers installation and testing of fieldbus physical layer components.
The Fieldbus Center offers Foundation fieldbus wire installation training.
“Fieldbus for Power and Wire Installers” was developed with the help of leading fieldbus equipment suppliers, engineering firms, and end users to meet process industry requirements for instrumentation personnel trained in Foundation fieldbus installation techniques, according to Fieldbus Center director Chuck Carter.
The course allows up to 12 students at a time to receive instruction in laying out, securing, terminating and testing wiring used for Foundation device networks. They also study construction and testing practices for verifying that installed fieldbus segments support system quality. Course topics include wire characteristics, polarities, shielding topologies, grounding topologies, power supplies, conditioners, terminators, termination techniques, surge protection, safety barriers and repeaters.
The second day of instruction, which is optional, covers intrinsic safety (IS) barriers, the Fieldbus Intrinsically Safe Concept (FISCO), the Fieldbus Non-Incendive Concept (FNICO), repeaters and specialized diagnostics.
