4. Topology Scan: How-to Benefit from the Correct Topology Information






Topology


Typically, during commissioning, PROFIBUS addresses are not assigned in the numerical order according to their position in the network.


PROFIBUS Tester 4 allows you to determine the:



  • correct physical location of each node in a given network
  • actual cable length
  • actual distance between each nodes

Signal QualityAfter a successful topology scan, the PROFIBUS Tester 4 will display the signal quality graphs in the correct order.



Here you can see a
