Data Communications and Information Technology

Industrial data communications, networking and IT systems are key components of all modern plants and facilities and industrial infrastructure. Viral and hack attacks on industrial computer systems have become increasingly common and personnel working within this industry need to constantly refresh their skills and knowledge on technical practical and theoretical subjects.

Short courses by IDC Video cover subjects that are both fundamentals and advanced courses for engineers and technicians in industry. Typical subjects include computer systems engineering, data communications and networking protocols and standards, troubleshooting systems, Fieldbus, DeviceNet, Ethernet, Radio telemetry systems, fiber optics, DNP3, 61850, routers and switches, SCADA, Modbus, programmable logic controllers, RFID tagging, industrial network security and programming.
