FBT-6-PA FIELDBUS MONITOR
The Fieldbus Monitor, FBT-6-PA, is used to examine a live Profibus PA segment without interfering with its operation. The Fieldbus Monitor is intended for commissioning and for maintenance personnel to verify network operation or to troubleshoot an errant network.
Upon connection to the segment the FBT-6-PA provides an overall assessment of segment health. In addition, addresses, signal levels and retransmit counts can be displayed for all devices on the segment. A device count, noise measurements, shield short detection, and more are also provided.
The FBT-6-PA provides the ability to store and download readings from 8 segments via a USB cable to a PC. Reference the data sheet below for complete specifications.
