PA Oscilloscope functionality
Using the new PA Probe Ultra ProfiTrace is now able to do electrical measurements on both DP and PA segments. Oscilloscope functionality for PROFIBUS PA has been integrated in the PA Probe for use with ProfiTrace Ultra. This is the only tool in the world that is able to be deployed in the entire PROFIBUS plant.
With one small box you can fault-find and health-check the whole plant or installation. In the past an external oscilloscope was required when measuring PROFIBUS PA installations. But with the new PA Probe Ultra the PA signal can be seen directly on the ProfiTrace ScopeWare screen in the same way as with DP.
The latest Verwer Training & Consultancy Ltd PROFIBUS courses cover the use of the PA probe and show how MBP wiring can be checked using ProfiTrace Ultra.
