Performance data overview
It is important to be able to estimate the IO response time in the centralized or distributed configuration or the transmission time for data communication between S 7 controllers in a PROFIBUS, PROFINET IO or industrial Ethernet network already during the planning phase of a plant.
In order to provide you with reliable statements on realistic plants with different topologies, we have set up and measured up to 15,000 hardware configurations per measurement and version.
With an easy-to-operate user interface you can:
- optimize plant design regarding communication behavior and
- compare different plant configurations with each other
Clicking the symbolic interface of the respective message takes you immediately to the most current version of the respective measurement. Via the “Description of measurement/ all versions" link you get to the respective detail page of the measurement with access also to older measurements.
