The PROFIBUS Monitor reliably detects deteriorations in the bus communication and reports them to the operational staff. This allows implementing a condition-based maintenance strategy that reduces operator intervention to when it is needed. In this way, routine system downtimes can be used for planned maintenance action, making best use of the often scarce maintenance resources.
The PROFIBUS Monitor is designed for permanent installation in control cabinets. One PROFIBUS Monitor per PROFIBUS network is all that is needed – no matter how many physical segments are to be monitored. In addition, the tool’s open functionality allows use across all controller and PROFIBUS device types.
