PNMA II – PROFINET measuring point
For nonreactive access in PROFINET
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.
