Software for network planning and commissioning
Industrie 4.0 has been a feature of the production sector for some time, at least when it comes to data:
The complexity of industrial networks is constantly increasing because connectivity is required from the sensor all the way to the cloud.
The downside: Incorrectly planned networks can quickly reach their limits here if the data volumes have not been taken into account as early as in the planning phase. In the worst case, such bottlenecks in data traffic even result in the failure of devices and segments so that larger production sections could be affected. One of the main tasks of predictive network planning is to correctly assess the available network resources to enable sound decisions to be made about how to proceed.
SINETPLAN - Siemens Network Planner
The Siemens Network Planner supports you as a planner of automation systems based on PROFINET and facilitates the professional and proactive planning of a system.
Benefit from the efficient planning and layout of PROFINET networks, especially if so-called “non-real-time communication” such as TCP/IP data is used in addition to real-time (RT) or IRT communication.
PRONETA - Commissioning and Diagnostics Tool for PROFINET
PRONETA simplifies commissioning and configuration of your PROFINET network. The topology of your network is read automatically. You can manually adapt the address parameters of every PROFINET device or simply apply the parameters from a template, which can also be created with PRONETA
