PA Probe Ultra

The PA Probe Ultra is a small but high-tech extension for ProfiTrace that makes it possible to do electrical and protocol measurements directly on the PA bus. With the PA Probe you can use ProfiTrace on DP as well as PA networks and finally cover all installations with 1 tool.

 

Introduction

In the past analyzers/busmonitors only had DP - RS 485 interfaces. With the transparent DP/PA couplers this was no problem, but when the links were brought on the market, the user had no possibility to analyze the protocol on the PA side. The PA Probe is a solution to use ProfiTrace directly in the PA area and therefore cover all PROFIBUS applications.

The PA Probe does NOT consume current from the coupler and can also interpret signals which are out of range. It has screw terminals so that the user can easily attach the PA cable.

Tap Connector

The Tap Connector is a utility to connect ProfiTrace to a DP network.

About the Tap Connector

The Tap Connector has been designed not to cause network disturbances due to spur lines. A perfect vertical position for ProfiTrace is obtained that does not overpressure the PG connector on the devices. The cable is of the flexible type so it can be moved to all directions.

Product features

  • PROFIBUS DP piggy back connector (PG)
  • DB 9 straight male connector
  • Flexible cable
  • 12 Mbps signals

 

 


Tap Connector DB9-M12

The Tap Connector DB9-M12 is a utility to connect ProfiTrace to a DP network which is equipped with M12 connectors.

About the Tap Connector DB9-M12

It has been designed not to cause network disturbances due to spur lines. The cable is of the flexible type so it can be moved to all directions. It has a 180 degrees DB9 connector and B-coded male and female M12 connectors to enable universal use. This utility can also be used as a general gender changer from DB9 to M12.

Product features

  • Cable lengths: 12.5 cm
  • M12 connectors: B-coded (male and female)
  • Shielding: 1-on-1 on every connector

ProfiTrace 2 (software only)

ProfiTrace is the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks. It's an essential tool for maintenance and troubleshooting. Thousands of users benefit daily from this great tool because it is easy to use and combines all required elements in one to detect most PROFIBUS faults.


ProfiTrace ScopeWare (DP)

With the built in oscilloscope we can detect noise, reflections, termination problems, etc.

Features:

  • Time scale: 50ns to 500ms
  • Voltage scale: 0,5 to 5V
  • Differential (A-B) and single (A and/or B line)
  • Trigger features: start of response, request message, voltage level
  • Bit interpretation engine
  • PROCENTEC Order code: 23010

software only


ProfiTrace Topology Scan

The Topology Scan creates a clear network drawing that contains the location of the devices and length of the cable that links them. The generated topology drawing is also visible in the reporting. It is a simple procedure: connect ProfiTrace to the working installation and with just 3 mouse clicks, the topology is generated.

Next to the Analyzer, Oscilloscope, Bar graph, Reporting and DP Master, the Topology Scan is yet another powerful feature that makes ProfiTrace the tool of choice 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 also be exported to detailed reports which are accepted by the industry. Predictive maintenance and asset management are now really possible! This outstanding tool that fits in your pocket will boost the limits and capabilities of service-, maintenance- and engineering technicians.

Features:

  • Automatic generation of the network topology.
  • No shutdown required!
  • No disturbance in the cycle time!
  • Works on 500 kbps and 1,5 Mbps.
  • On passive networks in conjunction with ProfiCaptain.
  • PROCENTEC Order code: 22020
