A reliable and undisturbed operation of modern production plants and industrial installations is essential these days. Therefore, a clear structuring and monitoring is not only useful in our eyes, but also urgently needed
Indu-Sol provides with INBLOX® a modular solution geared to the customer’s needs - the modular system for your PROFIBUS!
The modular structure allows a variety of new requirements to the PROFIBUS network topology: clear displaying via LED, physical network diagnosis, remote access and permanent monitoring.
INBLOX® as infrastructure component
The modular repeater INBLOX® combines the feature of signal refreshment of a usual repeater and an extended diagnosis via LED. The INBLOX® Repeater gains a clear structure of your PROFIBUS network: it builds segments in star structure, which are galvanically isolated from each other. Thus, a commissioning segment-by-segment or the replacing of single components can be made without affecting other segments. Errors can be located segment-related, because LEDs display the network status and health.
INBLOX® for a permanent network monitoring
Besides displaying of the network health via LED the INBLOX® repeater monitors permanently the logical data traffic of PROFIBUS DP and PA. All data are shown clearly on a web interface. Depending on the module you are able to monitor and analyse the physical transmission quality with quality values in a bar diagram. Additional measuring tool for monitoring the fieldbus quality is not anymore necessary.
We are at your service for all questions concerning our INBLOX® modular system.
