PROFINET DIAGNOSTICS WITHOUT HARDWARE – A TIME SAVER


economy in unforeseen ways. For instance, health threatening situations can result in limited or even denied access to factories, making maintenance a rather hard job to achieve. This is where the ability of remotely monitoring your network’s health becomes handy, as physical presence on site is no longer necessary and live network information can still be easily retrieved.


PROCENTEC discusses the importance of remote monitoring and diagnostics


ime flies! – a classic expression in today’s fast evolving world, in which change became a common driver influencing us as individuals and our behaviour. The constant feeling of having a lot to complete within a short period that leads to stress and losing overview affects the result, because the attention to detail is lost. PROCENTEC, the leading diagnostic solutions provider for industrial automation with over 20 years of experience, has always put the user experience into focus. Together, entering the race against time, PROCENTEC enables you to take back the driver’s seat and control the outcome. In the world of industrial automation, PROCENTEC introduced a new approach we call Industry 4.Human. So, what does it mean? With the end-user perspective being one of the main focus points, the objective is to create easy-to-use and time-saving solutions, based on struggles the end-user faces on a daily basis. Meaning: with time being an important denominator, remote monitoring becomes more important than you think.

MIXED NETWORK ARCHITECTURES As mentioned before, time is very valuable; every second lost can have an enormous impact on ongoing processes.


A perfect example to show movement in the industry is mixed network architectures. The number of sites that run multiple protocols including PROFIBUS, PROFINET and/or Ethernet/IP is increasing, unleashing a new set of tasks. With a new set of tasks on the table, attention is shifting away from the main objective: minimising downtime. In order to guarantee uptime in the factory, it is necessary to understand the change and react accordingly by educating employees, bringing their knowledge up- to-date. PROCENTEC mastered the challenges faced with mixed network architectures and is able to provide not only certified trainings, but also multi-protocol tools that are easy-to-use and remotely accessible at any given moment. This provides the opportunity to learn how to master these challenges and maintain uptime in your network - all at the same time.


TIME IS NOT EVERYTHING We know remote monitoring helps save and prioritise valuable time, but it can also be very beneficial in case other sudden factors come into play. These factors can also be a change or development in global climate, which cause chain-reactions affecting the
