Industrial Communications (IK)

In our "Industrial Communications" laboratory (IK), students learn to apply the theoretical fundamentals they acquired during the corresponding lectures "Industrial Communications" or "Bus Systems in Automation Technologies" – with focus on first-hand experience.

During the practical laboratory course, students configure and operate communications systems on their own. They learn how modifications in the configuration tools or PLCs effect the bus communication by observing and interpreting data with the help of corresponding analysis tools. Additionally, they work in groups to solve special tasks such as the synchronous operation of motors.
