Building a safe and secure embedded world

TH SCOPE is a software product for industrial network management and network diagnostics. Geared to plant operators and maintenance personnel, TH SCOPE is an all-in-one, easy-to-use solution for permanent monitoring and predictive maintenance, for acceptance testing and for troubleshooting. Combined with TH LINK components, the product supports PROFIBUSPROFINETEtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols.

Permanent network monitoring & management with comprehensive diagnostics functionality

A little more information on how the TH Scope and TH Links work

TH Link PROFIBUS

The TH Link is a monitoring tool that sits on the PROFIBUS network and ethernet and can alert you not only when there is a problem but potentially before the problem occurs as it looks at patterns in the error messages and spots trends.

It has its own webserver built in for independent use and access but can also be connected up to a Server with TH Scope running to add additional features and gather data from multiple TH Links PB or PN.

This link gives you access to a demo network running in Softing’s HQ in Munich, where you can investigate issues that have happened on their demo network over the last month or so. If you click on Link-PROFIBUS-1 on the left hand side and then click Diagnostic list you can see in there all the issues that have been recorded.

For instance ID 8 in the list I saying that the device with address 9 has a System fault with the module 1. The wire in the first port of the first module is broken (or has no connection). This significantly reduces the amount of time taken to identify why production has stopped. I have included a screenshot from the interface in case they reset it (which they do from time to time).

TH Link for PROFINET

The TH Link for PROFINET is an active device on the network, this is because of the way the switches work otherwise packets would be directed directly to the Controller and never be seen in a diagnostic device without a mirror port.

The TH Link in combination with TH Scope can also do some clever things:

  • For reporting on the condition of the network
  • The installed topology rather than the design install drawings
  • A complete inventory of devices/device names, serial numbers and order numbers.
  • Diagnostic Information

PROFINET commissioning & troubleshooting tool kit (TH-Link PROFINET)

  • Diagnostics independent from controller and control room
  • Data is collected in networks comprising up to 254 nodes, and made available to users through the TH SCOPE software application
  • Can be integrated without interfering with the operation of existing installations

The TH LINK PROFINET diagnostics tool makes use of a controller-independent access to monitor PROFINET networks. The diagnostic data is collected in networks comprising up to 254 nodes, and made available to users through the TH SCOPE software application. TH LINK PROFINET is easy to use and can be integrated without interfering with the operation of existing installations.
