Simple. Unique. Pioneering.

Managed Switches PROFINET

PROFINET Network diagnostics and leakage current monitoring combined in one!

The Indu-Sol PROFINET Switch PROmesh is the first full PROFINET switch that is equipped for the increased performance requirements in the PROFINET and conforms to Conformance Class B as well as Netload Class III requirements. With its optimised shielding contacts in the RJ45 jacks and leakage current monitoring the PROFINET/Ethernet switch has a high EMC resistance required in the industrial environment.

Functions PROmesh

The integration of the PROFINET/Ethernet switch into the automation system (Step7, TIA Portal) with the help of an engineering tool enables you to perform comprehensive network diagnostics. In contrast to standard switches, the PROmesh, thanks to its features, supports a variety of necessary functionalities:

  • Sending of device diagnostics to the controller (PN-RTA)
  • Neighbourhood detection (LLDP)
  • Port-related network statistics (PDEV)
  • Network diagnostics via IT mechanisms (SNMP)
  • Higher availability thanks to ring redundancy (MRP)

Other management functions: Port Mirroring | VLAN | SNTP | Packet filter rules | Bandwidth management | Warning function via e-Mail

Diagnosis function

The PROmesh can be adapted individually to your needs and network specifications. If requested you get notified about:

  • Number of error telegrams
  • Number of discards
  • Level of network utilisation
  • Correct port assignment
  • Height of leakage current

Network utilisation with millisecond precision

In PROFINET networks, even briefest peaks in the network utilisation can lead to a malfunction in the data communication and thus cause faults. To properly detect these network peaks, the PROmesh series determines the network utilisation with millisecond precision and presents them graphically on the web interface or issues an appropriate alarm if exceeded.

Leakage current monitoring

Leakage current monitoring makes it possible to permanently record and evaluate the sum of all shielding currents of the PROFINET lines. The corresponding spectrum with the respective frequency components is specified for this in addition to the current value. Using this integrated function, the PROmesh series also offers mechanisms for detecting EMC faults or couplings in addition to the complete PROFINET diagnostics.
