ProfiTrace 2 - Mobile PROFIBUS Combi-Analyzer

profitrace2-promo-200ProfiTrace 2 is the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks. It is the latest generation in the line of busmonitor technology. Thousands of users benefit daily from this great tool. ProfiTrace combines all required tools in one:
 Red-Square-BulletBar graph
 Red-Square-BulletTopology Scan
 Red-Square-BulletDP Master

Technicians can check and troubleshoot the complete PROFIBUS network with 1 software package and 1 piece of hardware. This is an enormous reduction in equipment, weight, costs and required knowledge. The advanced USB hardware (ProfiCore™ Ultra) is internally equipped with a high-speed digital oscilloscope and able to capture bus signals running at 12 Mbps.

ProfiTrace is an essential tool for maintenance, commissioning and troubleshooting as well as product development. Typical failures such as noise, reflections, voltage drops, termination problems, double addresses, wire breaks and configuration faults are easily identified. Random errors such as overshoots, error telegrams, repeats and diagnostics can also be captured and logged. The results can be exported to detailed reports which are accepted by the industry. Predictive maintenance and asset management are really possible with ProfiTrace! This outstanding tool that fits in your pocket, will boost the capabilities of service, maintenance and engineering technicians.

Live List

profitrace2-livelist-180 blank "Colours make it easy….."

The Live List is a matrix that continuously lists all the available devices. It is directly visible which devices are ‘troublemakers’.
With different background colours the status of the devices is displayed;
- Green: Device is in Data Exchange
- Yellow: Device is lost
- Red: Parameter fault
- Purple: Configuration fault
- No colour: Not in Data Exchange
The Live List can also generate the product name of the devices when a diagnostic message is captured (synchronized with the GSD library).
Statistics matrix

"Click and go….."

The statistics matrix is the most powerful feature of the analyzer. This field can really indicate what the condition of the installation is. It displays all the important information that a user, especially a maintenance technician is really interested in;
 Red-Square-BulletRetry messages
 Red-Square-BulletBus cycle time
 Red-Square-BulletDiagnostic messages, etc.

Because of this feature, the user does not have to inspect messages or do difficult operations to ensure the quality of the installation.

If the statistics do NOT show deviations, the installation is on the 1st degree OK!!!
Message recording

"The absolute truth....."

When the user records messages, he has a perfect visual representation on the screen;

 Red-Square-BulletVisualization of FDL, DP, DP-V1, DP-V2, PA and I&M messages.
