PROFINET Bus Analyzer
Bus Analyzer is the analysis tool for Ethernet/PROFINET network monitoring and diagnostics. It consists of a hardware component (BANY Analyzer Agent and XM400) and a Windows application (BANY Scope) that communicate with each other via an Ethernet connection specially provided for that purpose. The application is used to control and configure the hardware (triggers, filters, start. stop etc.), and to download recorded data and statistics to the analysis computer and interpret, display and store it there. There is also an option to save network traffic on an event-controlled basis for predefined events.

1. BANY PROFINET Analyzer Agent
The BANY Agent hardware can be permanently integrated into the network for permanent system monitoring. In the event of a fault, it can even be used retroactively via a SCALANCE TAP104 or as a "Functional Extender" on SCALANCE XM-400 switches for diagnostics during operation of the system (provided that the suitable firmware of the BANY XM400 is available). Disconnection or interruption of the network in question is thus avoided. Errors are analyzed quickly, making tedious reproduction attempts unnecessary. BANY Agent enables the repercussion-free extraction and evaluation of the entire telegram interexchange online in real time. Thanks to two integrated Test Access Points (TAP), redundant PROFINET networks can also be evaluated.

2. BANY PROFINET Analyzer XM400
In addition to network monitoring, the high-end BANY PROFINET Analyzer XM400 allows a time-saving and effective validation of the PROFINET network that is documented under consistent quality conditions and can be used as proof of quality, as a supplement to delivery documents or to reproducibly provide evidence of network stability. The saved test profiles facilitate reuse of the test conditions and also serve as a comparison basis for the results of the validation or short test.
The network validation is supported by a wizard, which includes step-by-step instructions, making detailed knowledge of Ethernet networks and PROFINET unnecessary. This saves you valuable time for commissioning and for preparation of recurring documentation of the PROFINET network quality.

The BANY Scope software enables access to several BANY PROFINET Analyzer Agents / XM400 in the installed networks of a plant (PROFINET or Ethernet) and thus detailed analysis of them. This makes it possible to rapidly identify and eliminate error sources in the PROFINET networks from any part of the plant. The quality of the network can be quickly determined and evaluated by means of main characteristic values (network load, telegram error, jitter, etc.).

The validation is rounded off with the free PRONETA software, which automatically scans and clearly documents the topology, configuration and performance parameters of a PROFINET network: www.siemens.de/proneta.
The multiple functions of the bus analyzer are implemented in individual modules. The modular structure allows target-oriented localization of error sources and the detection of weak points long before problems occur. The following modules are available for this:
- The telegram recording on
internal or external memory media (USB) with exact time stamping
(resolution 10 ns):
Comprehensive trigger functions for filtering the recorded data.
Interface to Wireshark and other export functions for detailed telegram analysis.
The PROFINET analysis automatically detects all relevant bus parameters (number of telegrams, bus cycles, etc.) online in real time and displays them in tables and graphically.
The packet generator for performing offline and online stress tests (measurement of the telegram run time, analysis of PROFINET RT and IRT with different network load factors).
Device lists to display device names, IP addresses, MAC addresses, device status, events, interruptions, and failures.
Online value tracking allows the user to extract and record any sizes and values of the communication partners from the telegram interexchange in real time and without affecting the actual communication capacity itself.
Control of all functions via script or a remoting interface (Ethernet, TCP) is possible.
