Skorpion Diagnostic Switch Series

Contemporary Controls - Skorpion Diagnostic Switch Series ideal for network troubleshooting

Skorpion Diagnostic Switches assist the user in troubleshooting Ethernet networks by allowing a network sniffer such as Wireshark® to attach to an unused port on the switch and observe all traffic on the network. Skorpion Diagnostic Switches retain all the features of an unmanaged switch but perform like a repeating hub where all received messages are flooded to all other ports. There are two 5-port diagnostic switches in the series which differ only by the highest data rate supported. The EISK5-100T/H supports 10/100 Mbps networks while the EISK5-GT/H can additionally support gigabit speed. The EISK8-GT/H supports up to eight ports at 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds.

One benefit of switched Ethernet technology is that the switch restricts directed messages to only those ports party to the communication. This improves overall network throughput by not burdening end stations with useless traffic. However, this feature makes protocol debugging difficult because a sniffer (protocol analyser) tool attached to an unused port on the switch cannot observe any directed messages of interest. In the past, the solution was to change out the switching hub with a repeating hub but with the Skorpion Diagnostic Switch this is unnecessary.

BACnet certificate renewed - Beckhoff

Starting with version 4024 of TwinCAT 3, the new BACnet supplement is available. With a total of 657 possible combinations of basic device, CPU, operating system and display size (for Panel PCs), the right solution is available for any application. Each controller can process data volumes for a number of BACnet objects ranging from 400 to 5,000.

The globally standardized BACnet compliance check included testing and certification of BACnet Revision 14, the routing between BACnet/IP and MS/TP, along with twelve new object types. The advanced AS-B profile of the AMEV was also recognized in connection with the certification process.

Issued in January 2019, the BACnet certificate will be valid for five years. BACnet Revision 14 also features significantly improved and expanded alarm properties. In addition, basic data types such as, for example, a date, a character string or floating-point values can now be mapped with twice the precision as before by help of the "primitive value" objects. The Remote Manager in TwinCAT 3 ensures downward compatibility with legacy objects in BACnet Revision 12.
