What Profibus Analyzer should be bought?
There are basically two tools that are required to solve communication issues on Profibus based networks (like Profi-S-Bus, Profi-S-IO, Profibus DP):
- an oscilloscope to locate hardware related problems (see related topics for more information)
- a protocol analyzer specialized for Profibus based networks
The protocol analyzer we recommend is ProfiTrace (www.profitrace.com) with the Oscilloscope Option. This analyzer bases on an up to date hardware and software concept and is easy to use. The oscilloscope option allows to observe telegrams of specific stations on the oscilloscope, ProfiTrace is generating the necessary trigger signals.
In Switzerland ProfiTrace is represented by Berner Fachhochschule, Hochschule fÃ¼r Technik und Informatik, please refer to labs.hti.bfh.ch/index.php for more details.
