Siemens makes it easy to configure and test ProfiNet remote I/O with Proneta
SIEMENS PRONETA is a free PC-based software tool which provides assistance with regard to the diagnostics and commissioning of PROFINET networks in automation systems:
• Topology overview, which automatically scans your PROFINET, displays all connected devices and allows for configuring components.
• IO wiring Test. By reading and writing inputs and outputs, PRONETA ensures that the connections between distributed IO components and their sensors and actuators have been set up properly.
• All tasks can be accomplished even before a CPU has been linked up with the network. PRONETA facilitates a quick and comfortable check of the
configuration at an early stage!
