The cross-network diagnostics concept provided by Trebing + Himstedt has been enhanced with the two Ethernet protocols EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP and is now able to cover more than 80 percent of the Industrial Ethernet market*. With PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP the TH SCOPE now supports the three leading Ethernet solutions which are used in the global market. Additionally, Industrial Ethernet devices, such as printers and cameras which do not correspond to any specific protocol, can also be monitored.
The TH SCOPE functions for the uniform monitoring of Ethernet and PROFIBUS networks have also been enhanced with a consistent application of the “ease-of-use” design principle. Through this, a graphical topology is now available, which clearly displays an overview of the actual network infrastructure and also provides status and bandwidth information. With the help of the historical trend dashboard the network quality can also be monitored over an extended period of time.
TH SCOPE diagnostics software also enables remote maintenance via secure remote access, the support of Asset Management functions through an overview of complete and current device information and inventory, the exporting of diagnostic data into MS Excel, as well as an integration into higher-level systems.
