INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING
Universal Robots Academy Western Europe
Key take-aways from this course
For simple applications, the Cobot is able to communicate with peripheral devices such as grippers, sensors or other actors. In this case, communication is based on simple digital signals, while the sensors and actuators are directly connected to the I/O interface in the controller or to the robot's tool flange. For more complex applications, however, it is often necessary for the robot to communicate and exchange data with a PLC, HMI or other peripheral devices. This training is the right one for you, if you want to know how to integrate the robot into a fieldbus communication after completing the CORE TRAINING.
After completing the INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATION TRAINING you will be able to use the above mentioned communication possibilities on your UR robot. Due to the high demand in the European area, the module "Profinet" will be given most attention.
- Successful completion of the UR Online Academy
- Successful completion of the CORE TRAINING
- Additionally recommended: Successful completion of the ADVANCED TRAINING
- IMPORTANT: Experience in working with Siemens TIA PORTAL

We at Universal Robots want to make the full potential of automation available to our users and are convinced that this can be achieved with the help of a high-quality training concept. That's why Universal Robots offers a global, easily accessible learning platform for online training in several languages and face-to-face training at more than 50 locations worldwide - and is continuing to expand its offering.
One of these locations is our training center in Munich. It consists of two separate areas where theory and practice are taught. For the practical implementation of the contents, 5 modern training cells have been set up, each with a maximum of two participants. Each cell is equipped with one of our robot arms, two conveyor belts, an I/O simulator, a Siemens PLC and an UR+ gripper. A special service room is also available for the practical part of the Service & Troubleshooting Training. You can register in our training center for all offered in-class trainings.
We look forward to welcoming you soon to one of our training courses.

How do I get to the training location by public transport and what about parking?
Universal Robots' premises are located directly at the Obersendling subway station. You can take the U3 subway almost directly to the entrance of the training center.
From the main station it is best to take the U1 or U2 to the next stop “Sendlinger Tor” and then change to the U3 in the direction of “Fürstenried West”. From the airport, take the S-Bahn and get off at “Marienplatz”. Here you change to the U3 in the direction of “Fürstenried West”.
If you arrive by car, we would ask you to leave your car at your hotel due to a very limited parking space around the training center.
Are there hotel recommendations?
There are several hotels in different price categories near the Universal Robots training center. After booking a training course, you will receive a booking code in the confirmation e-mail.
