PROFINET Bus Analyzer

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The PROFINET Bus Analyzer (BANY) enables the validation, analysis and ongoing diagnosis of simple, high-availability PROFINET networks.

Product description
Bus Analyzer is the analysis tool for Ethernet/PROFINET. It consists of a hardware component and a Windows application that communicate with each other via an Ethernet connection. The hardware is controlled and has parameters assigned by the application (triggers, filters, start. stop etc.), the application also downloads the recorded data and statistics to the analysis computer where they are interpreted, displayed and saved.

1. BANY 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 diagnosis during operation of the system 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 TAPs (Test Access Points), redundant PROFINET networks are also capable of evaluation.

2. BANY Scope
The BANY Scope software enable access to several BANY Agents in the plant. 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 by means of main characteristic values (network load, telegram error, jitter, etc.).  
For the validation of PROFINET networks, automated validation protocols are created according to the PROFINET planning and commissioning guidelines. Stress tests with differently simulated network loads can be carried out with the signal generator. In this manner, potential weak points can be identified and eliminated before the productive phase. With this you can ensure that the availability of your system will meet your high standards from the very start.

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.

Special features
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.
