PROFINET analysis made easy

November 2017

Hilscher has extended its popular Ethernet analysis tool netANALYZER Scope with a powerful quick test function for PROFINET networks.

The 'PROFINET Quicktester' option makes the inspection of PROFINET networks much easier. The software automatically detects important measurement values such as station lists, overview of cyclic and acyclic connections as well as long-term stability of jitter and network load during live recording on the network, with no need for further configuration. In addition, exceptional events such as the occurrence of new communication relationships or device alarms are detected and displayed directly in clear text in the software. Of course, as usual with netANALYZER Scope, events can also be used as trigger conditions and displayed together with other measured values on a common time axis.
