Measuring plant condition, detecting sources of malfunction, coordinating maintenance requirements
Every industrial plant is subject to constant wear and tear and the external influences of the production environment. In short: every plant ages. The communication networks of the plants are also affected by this. This becomes noticeable, for example, through sporadic, non-reproducible faults. But it doesn't have to come this far!

Maintenance instead of repair: Identify and fix sources of interference in a targeted manner - before problems or breakdowns occur.
Every plant ages. The communication networks of the plants are also affected by this. Whether it's wear and tear due to use or external influences from the production environment, it often starts with inconspicuous, sporadic anomalies. Since these often remain undetected, the potential for faults can increase and endanger the operation of the plant. But it doesn't have to come this far!
Network maintenance by external service providers or with your own staff – It's not the way, it' s the result that matters
By regularly or permanently checking the communication quality in the plant network, failures can be almost completely avoided. This preventive maintenance (cf. "predictive maintenance") can be carried out by trained maintenance personnel as well as by external specialists such as Indu-Sol service technicians. When making a decision, it is important to weigh up the respective costs.
Network maintenance with trained personnel and required equipment Monitor, control and maintain your plant networks completely independently. The necessary professional training and materials (including suitable measuring equipment) must be available.
Network maintenance by external maintenance service provider Commission an external specialist with the regular inspection and maintenance of your plant networks. The services vary depending on the provider and the contractual agreement.
Supported network maintenance with your own staff and external support Relieve your maintenance: Based on maintenance data (thanks to e.g. permanent network monitoring), an external partner supports your maintenance in time-saving fault clearance or maintenance, if required.
Our expert advice: For maximum availability, we recommend regular testing of the communication quality of your network immediately starting with commissioning of the system. These tests can optionally be carried out by your maintenance staff. (Further technical training / suitable measuring equipment required)
