RTU560 Training Courses

Standard Training

The Training Center of PTP offers product- and project-related courses for different target groups within the scope of a modular training program.

This brochure contains the Farsi course program for remote terminal units (RTUs).

Our aim is to impart the basic know-how and a general overview of our system to the participants of the training courses on the one hand, and to familiarize them with those details, which ensure safe handling and practical application of the equipment on the other. Therefore our instructors are men of practice, experienced both as technical specialists and as teachers.

For your best success the persons per training place are limited to 2 participants per place. If you prefer to work on your company’s laptop, feel free to take it along. You may also work with your laptop and you may parameterize the RTU in the training room with it if you like. You should have administrator rights at your laptop. If you attend a RTU560 course, please plug the CD-ROM-drive in your laptop. For RTU560 courses you need either WindowsNT4.0 or Windows2000.

PTP is the ABB competence center for RTU in Iran. The training room is equipped exemplary for the benefit of the participants: 3 RTU560 type C, The full range of protocols can be exercised: IEC6870-5, DNP, MODBUS, SPAbus…. A signal simulator for single and double point indications, for signal and double point commands, for analogue inputs and outputs belongs to each RTU. Bay Protection and Control Units are connected to the RTUs via fibre optic, either with SPAbus- or IEC870-5-103-communication.

There are 3 PCs including LAN connection to RTUs. The training courses are subdivided into theoretical and practical sections. Extensive and continually updated instruction documents are available for all training courses and will be issued to the students at the beginning of the course. Their cost is included in the course fees.
