PROFIBUS Tester 4 (BC-600-PB)
PROFIBUS Tester 4 - BC-600-PB

Part No: MPSF-PB-Tools-T4

Physical Installation Quality and Protocol Analysis

Quick and Easy Testing of Bus Physics and Bus Communication


Combines all in one device:

  • Signal Tester
  • Protocol Analyzer
  • Storage Oscilloscope

Use Cases:

  • Troubleshooting
  • Preventive Maintenance
  • Setup and Commissioning
  • Documentation
  • Acceptance Testing
  • Optimization
  • Laboratory Tests



  • Time saving because it is easy to use and results are self-explanatory
  • Cost saving, no expert knowledge necessary


  • Full bus testing without a Notebook and without operative PLC possible
  • Bus-check possible during running operation
  • Combines the diagnostic functions of previously separate tools in one device
  • With a single mouse click (PC mode) or a single push of a button (stand-alone mode) a full examination of a PROFIBUS network is initiated
  • The PC software provides many additional features for executing, analyzing, and managing bus tests.
  • A status bar continually shows the current bus state
  • Choice between quick test or user-controlled test
  • The Topology Scan feature determines the overall cable length and the cable length between slaves
  • 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 without operative PLC, only the baud rate needs to be specified – no configuration or parameterization is required.
