As of now, a bus analyzer with which it is possible to check the bus autonomously and across all known speeds is available with BANY PNIO. The bus analyzer records data traffic at speeds up to 1 Gbit/s - without interaction via appropriate TAPs and on Ethernet and PROFINET in a 10-nanosecond timebase.
Based on a system platform with FPGA(Field Programmable Gate Array) technology, the functions of BANY PNIO operate independently of the conventions of the bus technology. Whether it is used for development and system testing or for system diagnostics arrow BANY PNIO is the first choice for handling PROFINET problems with its freely definable filter and trigger functions. All functions are controlled by a Windows application. This application can control multiple BANY PNIO systems over a LAN network.
Many systems can only be used for subsequent offline analysis of events on the bus based on telegram recording. In contrast BANY PNIO has direct and undelayed online analysis with its integrated computing power. Without telegram recording, all important characteristics are analyzed and evaluated and input into network statistics during communication. This can be displayed in a table or also graphically for a quick visual check over an unlimited period. This provides precise information about the quality of the network and the configured cycles.
With the synchronization check, all participants on the bus are placed in relation to the cycle with their specific synchronization time. Thus can be verified whether the devices are also transmitting within their defined time intervals. This makes BANY PNIO the central system for recording and diagnostics of PROFINET.
