Visualize and troubleshoot any PROFINET network with the Netilities PROFINET diagnostic and engineering tool. Netilities is a simple and efficient graphical software tool useful for engineering, monitoring and troubleshooting PROFINET installations. The software is stored on and run from a USB dongle that can be moved between PCs. Connection to the PROFINET network is made via the PC's Ethernet port or via an interface to a ProfiTap via USB. Netilities runs on most standard Windows PCs.
Netilities generates a real time live list of the PROFINET network and detects devices in Data Exchange. The live list is color coded and provides detailed configuration and status information. Network statistics (cycle times, error counts, alarms, traffic levels, etc.) can be viewed to monitor system operations and current conditions. Detailed reports can be generated and saved in PDF format.
The list of detectable PROFINET faults identified by Netilities includes:
- General Communication Faults
- Configuration Faults
- Lost/Missing Device
- Wrong Device Name
- Duplicate Device Name
- Duplicate IP Address
Netilities can be used to set device names and IP addresses for configuration purposes. The tool is also very useful for PROFINET education and training.
