Why you should install PROmesh switches instead of conventional industrial switches

A modern industrial switch can do much more than distributing data packets in the best possible way in the (plant) network. Due to their central location in individual network sections, industrial switches are ideal for supporting maintenance and ensuring system availability.

Condition monitoring and diagnosis without additional measuring devices

Each industrial switch processes the incoming data signals to pass them on to the correct recipient. In addition to the conventional sender-receiver assignment, PROmesh switches analyze incoming signals, similar to the well-known PROFINET-INspektorĀ® NT, enabling permanent status monitoring of the communication quality and signal strength. Changes and abnormalities can easily be checked and early before influencing the communication or processes.

Meaningful diagnostic data from the first second

In addition, PROmesh switches can identify sources of interference, such as sporadic EMC loading, network load peaks, or damaged data lines. If PROmesh notices an abnormality, the first diagnostic data is already available and without manual measurement effort, saving you time and money when searching for critical sources of errors.

Mechanical engineers, maintenance engineers and IT experts pay attention!

Functions PROmesh

The integration of the Ethernet/PROFINET switch into the automation system (Step7, TIA Portal) with the help of an engineering tool enables you to perform comprehensive network diagnostics. In contrast to standard switches, the PROmesh, thanks to its features, supports a variety of necessary functionalities:
> Sending of device diagnostics to the controller (PN-RTA)
> Neighborhood detection (LLDP)
> Port-related network statistics (PDEV)
> Network diagnostics via IT mechanisms (SNMP)
> Higher availability thanks to ring redundancy (MRP)

Other management functions: Port Mirroring | VLAN | SNTP | Packet filter rules | Bandwidth management | Warning function via e-Mail

PROmesh P9 Network Utilization

Network Utilization with Millisecond Precision

In PROFINET networks, even briefest peaks in the network utilisation can lead to a malfunction in the data communication and thus cause faults. To properly detect these network peaks, the PROmesh series determines the network utilisation with millisecond precision and presents them graphically on the web interface or issues an appropriate alarm if exceeded.

PROmesh P9 Leakage Current Monitoring

Leakage Current Monitoring

Leakage current monitoring makes it possible to permanently record and evaluate the sum of all shielding currents of the PROFINET lines. The corresponding spectrum with the respective frequency components is specified for this in addition to the current value. Using this integrated function, the PROmesh series also offers mechanisms for detecting EMC faults or couplings in addition to the complete PROFINET diagnostics.

Display of Network Utilization

The PROmesh determines the network utilization with millisecond precision and displays this graphically on the web interface.

Display of Discards

PROmesh P9 counts number of lost telegrams (discards) on the web interface

Bandwidth Management

Data traffic can be limited by adjustable thresholds in order to avoid network load peaks. Data above the maximum value is discarded.

Highest Network Load Resilience

Netload classes define the sturdiness of a device in regard of the intensity of the data traffic. The PROmesh P9 is certified for the highest netload class III which is the first time a switch with more than 4 ports fulfills these requirements. Therefore, the new switch is the foundation for a frictionless operation thanks to stable network communication.

In Accordance with Conformance Class B

The PROmesh P9 has full PROFINET IO functionality and thus meets the usual requirements for PROFINET real-time communication in factory and process automation. The functionality of PROFINET IO devices is divided in clear conformance classes. These summarize different minimum characteristics. For infrastructure components like switches the conformance class B is of special importance as it includes the fundamental PROFINET functionalities and therefore covers the requirements of 99% of all the PROFINET networks installed in the field.

Up to 4 Queues per Port

The PROFINET switch has a large buffer memory for telegrams, which can not be forwarded at the moment. Up to four queues are available per port.

Additional Management Functions

In addition to the PROFINET functionalities, you also have other management functions at your disposal such as Port Mirroring, SNTP and packet filter rules for prioritization of packets.

Leakage Current Monitoring

Permanent leakage current monitoring with corresponding frequency spectrum according to the PI guidelines.
