ProfiTrace and other PROFIBUS Test Equipment

Our test equipment helps engineers to quickly verify new PROFIBUS network wiring, fault-find in failed systems and allows preventive maintenance screening for weaknesses which might cause later operational difficulties.

Due to their robust communications arrangements PROFIBUS systems can automatically overcome occasional partial equipment failures, or message corruptions. This system resilience can hide associated weaknesses from the operators, giving them no idea of such failings and problems, which may later, if not addressed, lead to more serious loss of functionality, or even total system failure. When properly used by expert staff, Procentec ProfiTrace and our other instruments, can help maintainers to regularly review network status, allowing identification, measurement and tracking of network performance weaknesses and other potential problems, so that these can be corrected before they can impact on overall system operation.

This network performance screening process has now been further enhanced by release of the new Procentec COMbricks products, which COMbricks - modular PROFIBUS repeater with embedded ProfiTraceinclude ProfiTrace-Over-Ethernet capabilities for continuous reporting of network status to remote monitoring centres and automatic sending of alarm notification messages by email or SMS texts!

In addition to the Procentec ProfiTrace and COMbricks products, we also supply the robust Siemens Siemens BT200 handheld PROFIBUS network testerBT200 handheld testers and, later in 2016, our new Hi-Port HP-25 cable testers, for network cable checks by unskilled wiremen.

And for ASi installations, we offer the Bihl+Wiedemann BW1415 AS-i Analyser, the very similar Siemens AS-Interface Analyser and the Siemens AS-Interface Addressing Unit.
