The combination of Comsoft's PROFIBUS analysis tools NetTEST II and PB Diagnostic Plug results in an efficient bundle for the PROFIBUS trouble shooting. NetTEST II is an analysis and test tool for the operation, maintenance and service for any PROFIBUS DP Network. It covers all PROFIBUS analysis tasks: Complete cable test, deep analysis of running networks and independent commissioning of DP Slaves. The analysis algorithms detect all typical PROFIBUS errors.
This is now complemented by a smart tool which fits in every pocket: the PB Diagnostic Plug. This device can be connected to any PROFIBUS node continuously monitoring the complete running data traffic for typical communication errors like bus subscriber drop outs, retries or disturbed data telegrams. Arising errors are indicated directly by integrated status LEDs. PB Diagnostic Plug increases the trouble shooting efficiency extremely: If no errors are detected no further action is required. If PB Diagnostic Plug detects errors, the powerful On Line mode of NetTEST II can be used for all further troubleshooting without any interrupting of the plant operation.
