Monitors the logical data exchange
The diagnostic tool PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT detects all active devices in your PROFIBUS network and displays them for easy review by an integrated web interface. The PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT allows an extensive online analysis of all quality relevant events e.g. error telegrams, telegram repetitions, data of device diagnosis, restarts and bus cycle time.

- Alerting via switching contact, LED display or email alert
- Topology with status display for quick error localization in network
- Automatically generated inspection report with all important event details
- Acceptance report mode for a quick network overview
- Synchronization via time server
PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT Features and Advantages in Detail
Interruption-free reading of all data
No additional software is required to read out the data from the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT. You only need an Internet browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox) to access the web interface integrated in the device. This allows you to view both the current network status and a history of past events.
Note: The web interface of PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT can be easily accessed via the web browser of the connected device (e.g. notebook or tablet) - without any additional software required. No active internet connection is required.
Topology function with status information
Knowledge of the real wiring of the individual devices is a central requirement for the evaluation of a PROFIBUS network. This topology can be stored and retrieved on the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT with all important infrastructure components such as repeaters and measuring points, including the device information. In addition, current and past states of individual nodes are displayed in color. This makes it much easier to limit existing errors to certain segments or conspicuous nodes without additional measurement effort.
Error statistics with detailed timeline
You can see clearly which device is most frequently affected by the events that have occurred (e.g. telegram repetitions). This provides you important information for troubleshooting and facilitates the localization and elimination, especially in the case of complex error patterns.
Automatic alerts for PROFIBUS errors
As soon as a threshold value is exceeded, the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT sounds an alarm to warn the operator in time so that targeted, planned maintenance measures can be initiated. A warning can be given in several ways. In addition to switching a potential-free contact, automatic alarming can be carried out conveniently via e-mail or SNMP trap thanks to the integrated Ethernet interface. In this way, the responsible maintenance department can be informed of potential malfunctions as quickly as possible. In addition, a status display on the device signals the current error status of your PROFIBUS system.
By accessing the web interface of PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT, a detailed alarm list shows which error occurred on which device and at what time. In addition, it records which event (threshold value) triggered the alarm. The internal memory allows up to 2000 alarm messages to be recorded with each alarm being assigned a snapshot with up to 1000 PROFIBUS telegrams.
- E-Mail (push)
- LED indicator
- switch contact
Easy creation of a PROFIBUS acceptance log
The PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT offers you the option of creating a complete acceptance log of your PROFIBUS project with just a few clicks and in a short amount of time. It contains all the important information about the respective PROFIBUS system, from topology to bus-related EMC conditions.
The simple start into permanent network monitoring
With the PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT, you can easily get started with permanent network monitoring. The compact PROFIBUS-INspektor® NT is the simplest solution for decentralized data collection of PROFIBUS networks. Without any special configuration effort, the device is immediately ready for use to record all typical logical quality parameters in your PROFIBUS project. Based on this, you can maintain and service your PROFIBUS system on demand. Efficiently reduce maintenance costs and efforts with the permanent PROFIBUS monitoring of Indu-Sol.
Permanent network monitoring is the key to:
- High plant availability
- Continuity of production
- Predictable maintenance
- Alarm management
