First Ever Open Enrollment Developer Training in Pune, India, Coming April 23-26

The Fieldbus Foundation, for the first time ever in India, will offer open enrollment training classes for FOUNDATION fieldbus product developers April 23-26 in Pune, India. The training sessions, meant for developers of FOUNDATION fieldbus products, will be held at UL Group of Companies, Katraj, Pune.

In order to keep pace with the growing adoption of FOUNDATION technology in India, as well as the increasing trend of companies moving their development sectors there, the Fieldbus Foundation plans to provide regularly scheduled developer training in the India region.

Two comprehensive developer courses will be offered in Pune: “Introduction to FOUNDATION Fieldbus” on Tuesday, April 23; and “Advanced Principles of FOUNDATION Fieldbus” on April 24-26. These courses are designed for beginning and advanced fieldbus development professionals, respectively.

The vendor-neutral “Introduction to FOUNDATION Fieldbus” course is intended for developers, marketing professionals, applications engineers, system integrators and others interested in obtaining a fundamental knowledge of FOUNDATION technology. Students will become familiar with the basic concepts and new terminology related to the FOUNDATION integrated architecture. They will understand the key strategies for wiring and installation of a fieldbus network. Special emphasis will be placed on design issues such as power requirements, device types and topologies.

The “Introduction to FOUNDATION Fieldbus” course assumes little or no prior knowledge of FOUNDATION technology, but students should already be familiar with process control and existing 4-20 mA technology found in present-day installations. The vendor-neutral “Advanced Principles of FOUNDATION Fieldbus” course is intended for manufacturers and developers of fieldbus hardware and software. The course is best suited for development engineers, test engineers, and all who wish to understand the detailed inner workings of a fieldbus device. The “Introduction to FOUNDATION Fieldbus” course is a prerequisite for this advanced class. Students should be familiar with the basic terminology of FOUNDATION technology, and have a general understanding of its communications protocol, function block execution, linkages and DDs.
