Plant Asset Management with optional monitoring for PROFIBUS Networks

Access to PROFIBUS networks for any FDT frame application, Emerson's AMS and Softing's TH SCOPE

TH LINK PROFIBUS provides controller-independent access to PROFIBUS networks for plant operation and maintenance staff. The tool supports both plant asset management applications and network diagnostics. TH LINK PROFIBUS is easy to be integrated without interfering with the operation of existing installations. 

Independent Access to PROFIBUS Network

  • Controller-independent
  • Independent of configuration tools
  • Access for plant asset management applications to configure field devices based on FDT/DTM and EDDL standards (acyclic master)

Designed for Installation without Interference with Plant Operation

  • Connection to PROFIBUS network also possible during operation of the plant
  • Easy integration into existing plants thanks to compact design
  • Browser access for administration and configuration purposes

Powerful Data Collection Capabilities Optimized for PROFIBUS

  • Passive listening to PROFIBUS DP protocol
  • Threshold monitoring for frame retries
  • Statistics for optimization of the network configuration
  • Easy detection of missing terminating resistors

Optimized for Use by Maintenance Engineers

  • Central and time-saving parameterization of PROFIBUS and HART field devices directly from the control room
  • Continuous monitoring and troubleshooting for PROFIBUS networks
  • Fault identification with intelligent troubleshooting assistance
  • Seamless integration with TH SCOPE diagnostics software
