SIEMENS PRONETA is a free PC-based software tool which provides assistance with regard to  the diagnostics and commissioning of PROFINET networks in automation systems by providing the following features:
  • Topology overview, which automatically scans your PROFINET and displays all connected devices. The list of all connected devices can be exported, including the details of all electronic modules. PRONETA allows for configuring components, and other simple configuration tasks, as well as for a comparision between the actual installation and a reference plant.
  • IO Test for the rapid test of the wiring and module configuration of the components. By reading and writing inputs and outputs, PRONETA ensures that the connections between distributed IO components and their sensors and actuators have been set up properly. PRONETA can create test profile templates and save test protocols to document test results.
  • All tasks can be accomplished even before a CPU has been linked up with the network. Since no further engineering tools besides PRONETA and no dedicated hardware are required, PRONETA facilitates a quick and comfortable check of a plant configuration at an early stage.
