Options for Diagnostics and Service

Description

In an automated plant 80 % of faults during operation are process faults. Your diagnostics are plant-specific and cannot therefore be integrated into the controller hardware or firmware. Instead, this must be programmed. To keep related costs low, the use of diagnostics tools is recommended.
