The highlights of PRONETA Professional at a glance


  • Automated scanning and data acquisition of components in the PROFINET network including module details, for example, distributed I/O
  • Control and data transfer via an application interface (API) based on MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport), IoT Hub or command line
  • Transparency of the PROFINET automation components used
  • Mapping of the real plant as a digital twin
  • Regular scans help with documentation and make plant modifications transparent
  • Use of PRONETA as viewer for offline display of scanned information (including topology display)
  • Integration of external applications (incl. data transfer via MQTT)
  • PROFIenergy diagnostics allow to detect the device status and to change the mode respectively display measured values 
  • Data block wizard to read and write acyclic PROFINET data blocks

The Challenge


Acquiring device data in automation systems is a complex and time-consuming task. Information on the components used is becoming increasingly important for plant operators to ensure stable operation and predictable maintenance of the plant (e.g. only approved FW and HW versions in use). 

The Solution


PRONETA Professional relieves the user of this task and supports the operator and maintenance personnel in acquiring the details of the employed components.
With PRONETA Professional, the network can be scanned automatically in regular intervals and the real plant configuration can thereby be documented transparently. This opens up completely new opportunities to better plan service and maintenance and thus optimize plant operation. It helps to avoid undesirable situations during maintenance and service, such as a missing compatible spare part. This increases production availability. 

Customer benefits

    • Higher production availability by avoiding failures caused by the lack of compatible replacement devices
    • Always up-to-date transparency over the PROFINET network
    • Efficient acquisition of details of components used for perfect asset management
    • Supports automatic regular validation of the adherence to construction and operator specifications 
    • Quick diagnostics options are provided by PROFIenergy diagnostics and the data block wizard

    Product features


    • Control and data transfer via an application interface (API) based on MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport), IoT Hub or command line
    • As a running Windows service, the scan service is available at any time.
    • Scan of the connected networks by using PRONETA freeware
    • Acquisition of device details (I&M data) down to module level (e.g. IO modules of the distributed I/O)
    • Acquisition of the network topology and export of data in xml, png and xps format
    • Integration of external applications (incl. data transfer via MQTT)
