Part No. MPSF-PB-Tools-T3
The PROFIBUS Tester 4 combines a signal tester, a storage oscilloscope, a
protocol analyzer, and a master simulator into a single tool.
This tool is
designed for use in a wide range of applications – from setup and
commissioning, documentation, acceptance testing, and optimization to
preventive maintenance, troubleshooting and laboratory tests. In addition,
the PROFIBUS Tester 4 can be used without a notebook and is able to run
comprehensive network tests in stand-alone mode.
Also Suitable for Less Experienced Users
With a single mouse click (PC mode) or a single push of a button
(stand-alone mode) a user is able to initiate a full examination of a
PROFIBUS network including automatic signal and protocol analysis.
of all results is displayed to the user in a very intuitive manner.
mode, the software package has been designed to emphasize the all-important
ease-of-use aspect while at the same time preserving the more in-depth
diagnostic features required by networking experts. This makes the tool
ideal for both less experienced users and fieldbus specialists.
Intuitive Use and Clear Readings
The PROFIBUS Tester 4 automatically detects the baud rate or open circuit
voltage immediately after connection to the PROFIBUS.
In stand-alone mode,
the bus can be tested using the Live Status functionality. The PC software
provides many additional features for executing, analyzing, and managing bus
tests. A status bar continually shows the current bus state. Using the
Network Status function, the bus can be tested with a Quick Test or a
The Topology Scan feature determines the overall cable
length and the cable length between slaves.
The test results can be
documented in a detailed test report. The Long-Term Trend view is used for
detecting sporadic faults. In the Oscilloscope and Frame Analyzer views,
experts can perform in-depth, detailed analysis. For bus and device tests
with the integrated master simulator, only the baud rate needs to be
specified – no configuration or parameterization is required.
