Softing announces the release of its new mobile PROFIBUS Tester which provides PM_BC-700-PB_092014_rgb_72dpi_600pxextended functionality.

The new PROFIBUS Tester BC-700-PB is a powerful diagnostic and troubleshooting tool for comprehensive testing of PROFIBUS segments during operation and can now also be used for cable testing. The device is battery powered which guarantees maintenance and commissioning engineers the highest level of mobility in the field.

Test results are shown clearly and are easily understandable on the new graphic display when the device is operated in stand-alone mode. Results can be exported for extended analysis in PC mode.

“Up to now, users had to buy the diagnostic tool and the cable tester separately,” explains Heiko Nickel, Product Manager at Softing. “The BC-700-PB is the first battery-operated tester that combines bus physics, bus communication and cable testing in one device.”

Less experienced users will benefit from the intuitive menu navigation of the PROFIBUS Tester. For Fieldbus specialists, the PC software offers many additional functions for executing, analyzing and managing bus tests.
