ProfiTrace 2 – PROFIBUS Troubleshooting & Maintenance Tool

ProfiTrace2ProfiTrace 2 is the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks. It’s an essential tool for commissioning, documentation, maintenance and troubleshooting. Thousands of users benefit daily from this great tool because it is easy to use and combines all required elements in one to detect most PROFIBUS faults;



  -Bar graph

  -Topology scan


  -DP master

This outstanding tool that fits in your pocket, boosts the capabilities of service, maintenance and engineering technicians. They can check and troubleshoot the complete PROFIBUS network with 1 software package and 1 piece of hardware (ProfiCore™ Ultra). This is an enormous reduction in equipment, weight, costs and required knowledge.

Typical failures such as noise, reflections, voltage drops, termination problems, double addresses, wire breaks and configuration faults are easily identified.

The results can be exported to detailed reports. Predictive maintenance and asset management are really possible with ProfiTrace !
