The PROFIBUS Tester 5 (BC-700-PB) is a powerful PROFIBUS diagnostic and troubleshooting tool for testing the cables, measuring the signals and analyzing the communication of PROFIBUS networks. It is battery-powered and provides a graphical display, allowing for quick results when working in stand-alone mode. Optionally, also PROFIBUS PA network can be analyzed. In addition, the PROFIBUS Tester 5 supports the export of test results for advanced analysis.

PROFIBUS Troubleshooting with PROFIBUS Tester 5
In this video you will get an introduction to systematic troubleshooting in a PROFIBUS network. You will learn to locate and document the cause of the error.
PROFIBUS Network Acceptance with PROFIBUS Tester 5
This video will show you how to quickly and properly measure a PROFIBUS network and how to create the clear and meaningful report.
Measures leakage currents, e.g. leakage and fault currents, and current pick-up of instruments without breaking the circuit. Measurements according to DIN VDE 0701/0702 and the German BetrSichV (BGV A3, VBG 4).
Digital leakage current clamp, 2 batteries 1.5 V IEC LR6, carrying case, measuring cables (1 x red, 1 x black) and user manual.
Provides an access point for testing PROFIBUS networks if the D-sub connectors have no service socket or if the stations are connected via terminal block.
The service interface is top hat rail mounted. An external 24 VDC power source is required for power supply to the terminating resistor in the PROFIBUS connector included in the package. The service interface can thus be used as an active bus termination at the beginning or end of the bus. If the PLC allows dropping and adding bus stations on the live bus, the service interface offers the possibility to exchange the first and last bus stations without causing problems on the bus.
PBMB adapter and 90° angled PROFIBUS connector with switchable terminating resistor, strain relief and screw terminal technology.
Provides an access point for testing PROFIBUS networks with M12 connectors.
The service interface is inserted between two bus stations. When not in use, the service output of the T piece is closed with an end cap. At baud rates of 1.5 Mbit/s or higher, use the supplied cable to ensure that the required minimum distance between bus stations is maintained.
T piece (protection class IP68) with end cap and a 1 m DP cable fitted with a male/female M12 connector on each end.
