What is permanent network monitoring/condition monitoring?
The maintenance of your plant becomes significantly uncomplicated with the seamless recording of your network's condition. Physical and logical system values get recorded and evaluated similarly to selective (maintenance) measurements with simple measurement clamps. However, because the data is being recorded permanently, in more detail, and even simultaneously at several measuring points, maintenance staff can detect irregularities early on and correct the causes early on - the basis for cost-efficient, condition-based maintenance.
Individual, scalable monitoring solutions according to your requirements
Permanent network monitoring (PNM) offers many implementation possibilities. Depending on the requirements and budget, you can use one network monitoring system that has the option of expansion at any time.
Even starting with one data collector, such as the PROFINET-INspektor® NT or a PROmesh Switch with an integrated diagnostic function, can be considered a monitoring solution. Additional data loggers can be used depending on the type of system, structure, and requirements. These devices were designed for individual use and often supplied with their own web-based monitoring applications. A detailed evaluation is possible at all times through their applications or by manually reading the stored long-term data saved on the device.
Operators of complex or multiple systems can centralize and partially automate the professional condition monitoring using our PROmanage NT network monitoring software. The PROmanage NT software automatically informs you of critical events in addition to the evaluation, analysis, and long-term storage of condition data from your fieldbuses and industrial Ethernet networks.
