It is integrated in the respective network on a permanent basis and monitors permanantly the logical data traffic during operation. In this way, the system operator is informed about the current network status at any time and he is able to take appropriate measures to prevent fieldbus failures and emergency shutdown.
The passive data logger INspektor® NT checks the PROFIBUS for error telegrams, telegram repetitions, device diagnosis and device failures. Depending on the predefined trigger functions the events are registered in the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT and summed up and stored per device. The collected network data can be displayed via the Ethernet interface on a local PC and build a basis for a preventive maintenance.
