Intelligent Measuring Point for Online Analysis and PROFINET Monitoring

The PROFINET-INspektor® NT is an important diagnostic tool for certification, commissioning and inspection of new installed PROFINET networks. Depending on the pre-defined trigger functions, the events are registered in the PROFINET-INspektor® and summed up and stored per device. Therefor, the INspektor® detects quality values like network load, data throughput, refresh rate, telegram gaps and telegram jitter that mirror the current status of communication quality. These parameters serve as commissioning and inspection criteria for new installations, but also as important information for maintenance and (remote) service.

Firmware version v2.3 new functions:

  • Topology scan as an action on defined trigger events (e.g. new network participants or access to the controller)

  • Quality parameters (traffic light principle) are depicted in the topology
  • topology scan of the primary IIT network
  • Support of MQTT alarm actions
  • Telegram streaming directly via INspektor
  • Optional login page & configurable email encryption
  • New alarm triggers: interval triggers, SNMP trap receivers, topology changes

Proven features:

  • Acceptance according to the PROFINET Design Guideline and Commissioning Guideline of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International
  • Independent analysis and evaluation of PROFINET real-time communication
  • Topology determination including asset management
  • Detailed description and presentation of the PROFINET network
  • Complete acceptance report with all relevant event information
  • Representation of the PROmesh switches
  • Display of status-relevant port statistics and leakage currents
  • Self-learning threshold values – Threshold values are automatically determined for alarms after the acceptance test
  • Touch display that shows errors directly
  • Jitter statistics for all devices
  • Option to carry out active or passive network diagnosis
  • Uninterrupted monitoring, even at a high net load
  • Synchronization via time server

PROFINET INspektor® NT as continuous network monitor

A permanent analysis of the network status is essential to ensure the PROFINET communication – clocked in real time or to overview the amount of extrinsic communication (e.g. Ethernet by camera systems and displays).

                      Permanent monitoring of PROFINET communication wih the PROFINET INspektor NT

                      Integration of the PROFINET-INspektor® into the PROFINET network

The PROFINET INspektor® NT is permanently integrated into the plant network and permanently monitors the logical telegram traffic during running production conditions. The plant operator knows the current status of the network at any time and is therefore able to initiate concrete countermeasures before the fieldbus fails and the plant comes to a standstill. An integration of the PROFINET INspektor® into the detection system is possible and useful for permanent monitoring.

Integrated Web Interface

Thanks to the PROFINET INspektor® NT embedded web server the network state can be displayed without any additional software on any PC with an internet browser. Via the potential-free contact a visual alert can be set.
