Monitoring Software PROmanage® NT V2

The network condition at a glance – no additional hardware required

PROmanage NT V2: Monitoring software for industrial networks

Infrastructure-related bottlenecks, gradual deterioration due to component aging, or wear caused by the production environment lead to (initially invisible) impairment of your machine and system networks. The PROmanage® NT V2 network management software (NMS) warns of the first abnormalities at an early stage, permitting planned maintenance and minimising avoidable system failures.

PROmanage® NT V2 permits evaluation, analysis, and storage of condition data for your fieldbuses and industrial networks for the long term and combines them in a central overview. Let your networks work in peace and react only when you are informed about any abnormality that has occurred in future.

PROmanage® NT V2 supports the following fieldbus/network protocols:

PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for Industrial Ethernet
PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for PROFINET
PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for EtherNet/IP
PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for PROFIBUS
PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for CANbus
PROmanage NT V2 - Industrial Network Monitoring Software for ASi / AS-Interface

Keep Your Network Condition in View at All Times
- Parameters Can Be Evaluated per Network Protocol

You can monitor and evaluate a vast variety of values for your networks depending on the network protocols (PROFINET, CAN, etc.) in use and your required monitoring hardware.

Merge the data of several systems of the same or different network protocols and keep them centrally in view.

The following parameters can be called up:

Please note, that separate data collectors may be required to keep the specified parameters are available depending on the network used.

License ports explanation

The number of license ports required depends on the devices and network ports to be monitored with PROmanage® NT V2.

For direct integration in PROmanage® NT V2 is required:

  • Per Ethernet switches: 1 license port per network port
    i.e. 8 port switch = 8 PROmanage licenses
  • Per PROFINET-INspektor NT: 16 license ports
  • Per other INspektor units: 8 license ports

PROmanage NT V2: Functions and Advantages in Detail

How is my network doing today?

Network history/overview of the condition history based on the traffic light principle

The network history provides you with quick and clearly presented information:

  • What is the current network condition?(based on the tried and tested traffic light principle)
  • How long did the networks run without any faults?
  • When did the last faults occur?(with time stamp)
PROmanage NT V2 - Planning software for industrial networks: Chronicle - Network status

Better recognition of interrelationships and changes of condition

Complete condition history/event messages with time stamp

The integrated threshold value management makes it possible to define threshold values for each network parameter. When these limits are reached, an entry with time stamp and event description is automatically made in the event list. Information on network faults can be retrieved from the event list with a single click.

Notice any anomalies in the network before they turn critical

Alarm management and notifications

An implemented alarm management permits automatic forwarding of event messages. All messages can be transmitted to the appropriate area of responsibility in a timely manner by selecting a suitable information medium (email, messaging services, OPC, SNMP). This shortens reporting paths and prevents undesired system downtimes.

Analysis functions: condition details at a glance – permanently and on demand

Full access to current condition data of your monitored machine networks at any time/strong>

Various analysis functions are available to localise any causes of detected anomalies more efficiently and with accurate connection. Among other things, all performance parameters of integrated switches are queried every minute and by the port via SMTP. Optionally integrated data collectors, such as the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT, enable direct access to diagnostic functions for detailed analyses of the data communication.

How has the condition of your system(s) developed?

Performance analysis by means of condition graph

A clear user interface enables the display and evaluation of the information. The user interface can be customised to requirements and distributed across several screens for a better overview. Different parameters, e.g. device temperature and device failures of various devices can be compared in a graph in order to uncover correlations in case of occurring failures.

All network participants at a glance – topologies and device status

Central topology recording with PROmanage® NT V2

Topologies can be recorded centrally, bundled in one location, and clearly displayed with all device information and statistics included in them this way using the network monitoring software PROmanage® NT V2. This creates an up-to-date and real overview of which devices are where in the network, including their condition. Devices affected by any events occurring in the network can be located quickly. If any changes are made to the network wiring, the points in time can be determined by continuously recording the topology. The anomalies detected this way include, among other things, removed and newly connected devices as well as changes in the port assignment of the respective switches.

Advice: We recommend using the topology software PROscan® Active V2 or decentralised data collectors such as the PROFINET-INspektor® NT for determination of current topologies.

PROmanage NT V2 - Planning software for industrial networks: Topology + network structure

Individual scaling possible – based on your requirements

Flexible expandability – anytime, depending on requirements and budget

Combine PROmanage® NT V2 with additional data collectors, such as the PROFINET-INspektor® NT or a PROmesh Switch with integrated diagnostic function. You can also integrate your managed industrial switches from another manufacturer. This will allow you to collect the condition data of your networks in a central location to keep them conveniently in view. Central network monitoring helps to detect faults and anomalies at an early stage in particular in complex or multiple systems.

Combine compatible devices to your liking and expand them at any time when setting up your individual monitoring solution. We will gladly support you in the selection of suitable products.
