Trebing + Himstedt releases new versions of Profibus Diagnostic Solutions, Scope'and' Link '. The new features of threshold monitoring and extended GSD support simplify the maintenance and diagnostics of Profibus production networks and reduce the risk of production downtime. The new feature of threshold monitoring has further improved the detection of errors in such networks.
The Profibus link now also displays critical telegram repetitions in the production network. As soon as a critical value of telegram repetitions is reached (the so-called threshold value), users are automatically informed by e-mail about possible error sources. The level of the threshold can be adapted and configured to local conditions. Error messages can also be forwarded to higher-level systems via OPC or SNMP. Thanks to the improved fault detection, measures to remedy errors in the Profibus can be initiated earlier or better use planned maintenance intervals of production plants. Telegram repetitions are considered important indicators of errors in a Profibus network.
