Throughout the Industrial Computer Systems Engineering course students have only been exposed to SCADA and industrial communications through research and limited practical applications. The Siemens WinCC and Profibus SCADA System described in this report changes that by giving students the opportunity to design and build their own SCADA system from scratch or build on the existing system by incorporating new features and design aspects.

During this project, the Profibus network designed by the ENG454 students was installed in the Industrial Computer Systems Engineering (ICSE)laboratory. This network incorporates the three sub-network configurations designed by Brenton Walker to provide variations in server, client, and Profibus device configuration. Utilising the documentation developed by Brenton Walker, full scale Profibus data exchange examples have been implemented spanning more than one Single Network.
