Extensive test and diagnostic functions of VIPA CPUs, and the fieldbus systems PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and EtherCAT result in efficient and constructive trouble shooting in SPEED7 Studio. Considerably simplified access to EtherCAT by:
Automatic reading of the connected EtherCAT hardware, fast and clear project engineering and parameterization, complete network diagnosis.
The integrated PLC and HMI simulation bring following simplifications:
A clear and structured test of complex systems beforehand, extreme simplification of the fault diagnosis through the newly developed real time recordings of the data points from the PLC, even at sporadically occurring faults. Besides this you can make a detailed analysis with the fully integrated logic analyzer
