Mobile PROFIBUS Combi-Analyzer
ProfiTrace is an essential tool for maintenance and troubleshooting and is currently the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks. Thousands of users benefit daily from this tool.
ProfiTrace is easy to use and unites all required elements in one to detect several PROFIBUS faults. The following tools are combined to create one simple solution:
Predictive maintenance and asset management are simple with ProfiTrace. Read more below about product features, statistics, scanning, and reporting.
Fits in your pocket
Controls and measures the whole installation
Product features & application areas
This outstanding tool that fits in your pocket, boosts the capabilities of service, maintenance and engineering technicians. They can check and troubleshoot the complete PROFIBUS network with 1 software package and 1 piece of hardware (ProfiCore™ Ultra). This is an enormous reduction in equipment, weight, costs and required knowledge.
Typical failures such as noise, reflections, voltage drops, termination problems, double addresses, wire breaks and configuration faults are easily identified.
The results can be exported to detailed reports. Predictive maintenance and asset management are really possible with ProfiTrace!

"Colors 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
Statistics matrix and network condition indicator
"Click and go….."
The statistics matrix and network condition indicator are the most powerful features of ProfiTrace. These fields can really tell what the condition of the installation is without doing difficult operations.
