Problem
For the system acceptance test you usually need a document which lists existing status of the PROFINET IO network at a fixed time and prints them in a suitable format. These are for example: project data, module status of all nodes, port status of all PROFINET IO devices, etc. This information can be extracted and edited from the STEP 7 configuration files.

Solution  
With the help of the „Topology Reporter” tool you can create a document from the exported data of your STEP 7 project that displays all relevant data regarding the topology of your PROFINET IO network in a clear form. A typical field of application of this tool is e.g. the final documentation for the system acceptance test.

The following graphic shows you the data flow from plant network to the Topology Report.

The tool on hand offers you the following advantages:

  • creation of a complete documentation component of your PROFINET IO network
  • it is based on the consistent configuration file of the plant
  • This makes a new status comparison of the plant possible at any time
  • The tool can also used as Java application on non-Windows operating systems.

Attention
Use the Topology Reporter only with STEP 7 V5.5 up to and including SP3!
