If you have seen the previous PROFIBUS video it talks about the handling of PROFIBUS Tester 5 (to view the previous video click here or visit the previous news). Ergo, this video would be an introduction to systematic troubleshooting in the PROFIBUS network, you will learn how to locate and document the cause of the errors. Aside from the PROFIBUS Tester 5 you will also need the software called PROFIBUS Diagnostics Suite for the troubleshooting.
