PNMA II – PROFINET measuring point

For nonreactive access in PROFINET

PROFINET measuring point PNMA II

The PROFINET measuring point PNMA II provides nonreactive access for telegram recording in the PROFINET and other Ethernet-based networks (e.g. Industrial Ethernet) during running production.

For use in harsh environments or outside the control cabinet, the IP67-certified PNMX variant is available.

Highlights PROFINET measuring point PNMA II

  • If connecting a PROFINET-INspektor® NT via a PNMA II, only two additional patch cables are needed (no crossover cable required).
  • In case of a power supply failure the PROFINET communication via the PNMA II remains intact.
  • Power supply of additional analytic tools via the UOUT (24VDC) connector
  • PNMX IP 67 for rough production environments


Analysis tools (e.g. PN-INspektor® NT or laptop) can be connected nonreactive to the two monitor jacks to monitor both communication directions simultaneously. For evaluation of the
measurement results the telegrams from both communication
directions can be overlaid. The PNMA II / PNMX does not discard
error telegrams. Instead, it forwards them.

Safety instructions We recommend integrating an appropriate protection concept for the safe operation of the PNMA. The PNMA may only be operated in conjunction with a safety extra-low voltage supply of limited power (according to IEC/EN 60950-1/VDE 0805-1).
The unit must not be operated with AC voltage or DC voltage greater than 40V DC.
