Netilities – The most powerful PROFINET Diagnostic and Engineering tool
19 January 2015
Visualize and troubleshoot any PROFINET network with the powerful Netilities diagnostic and engineering tool. Netilities is the most compact and efficient graphical software tool useful for engineering, monitoring and troubleshooting PROFINET installations. Thanks to unique features as a live list, statistics and PROFINET alarm messages engineers can be informed directly about the reliability of the PROFINET network. This allows users to take immediate action when a critical situation occurs. Troubleshooting has never been so easy.
Netilities generates a real time live list of the PROFINET network and detects devices in Data Exchange. The live list is color-coded and provides detailed configuration and status information. The user can directly see what the condition of the network is. The list of detectable PROFINET faults identified by Netilities includes general communication faults, configuration faults, diagnostics of devices, lost/missing device, wrong device name, duplicate device name and duplicate IP address. Network statistics (cycle times, error counts, alarms, traffic levels, etc.) can be viewed to monitor system operations and current conditions. This provides a complete overview of the network condition.
Netilities offers another unique feature that is more than worth mentioning: PROFINET alarm messages. Netilities receives alarm messages when a critical situation occurs. These messages are decoded and displayed in Netilities. Thanks to this feature users can intervene directly and prevent downtime. Detailed reports about the reliability of the PROFINET network can be easily generated and saved in PDF format. The PROFINET alarm messages are also added to this report. This makes the report even more comprehensive and detailed.
The latest version of Netilities is available and can be downloaded from the website of PROCENTEC: procentec.com/netilities
