ComBricks – Monitoring, Networking & Control

ComBricks is the first PROFIBUS- and PROFINET-based automation system that unites repeaters and permanent monitoring in a web browser.

Monitor your PROFIBUS & PROFINET network 24/7
ComBricks allows you to remotely monitor your PROFIBUS installations from anywhere in the world and will alert you if any faults arise or are likely to arise. It is a modular platform able to carry repeaters, PA, FF and fiber optic modules. The connectivity to Ethernet allows you to remotely inspect the condition of the installation with a ProfiTrace shell in a web browser.

This is the only product with an integrated oscilloscope for permanent PROFIBUS control over Ethernet.

Read an introduction to ComBricks below. Here you will also find information about remote monitoring and setting up modular repeaters.

ProfiTrace – Mobile PROFIBUS Combi-Analyzer

ProfiTrace is an essential tool for maintenance and troubleshooting and is currently the most powerful mobile analyzer for PROFIBUS networks. Thousands of users benefit daily from this tool.

ProfiTrace is easy to use and unites all required elements in one to detect several PROFIBUS faults. The following tools are combined to create one simple solution:

  • Bus monitor
  • Oscilloscope
  • Bar graph
  • Topology scan
  • Reporting
  • DP Master

This outstanding and portable tool boosts the capabilities of service, maintenance and engineering technicians. You can check and troubleshoot the complete PROFIBUS network with simply one software package and one piece of hardware (ProfiCore™ Ultra). This is an enormous reduction in equipment, weight, costs and required knowledge.

Typical failures such as noise, reflections, voltage drops, termination problems, double addresses, wire breaks and configuration faults are easily identified.

The results can be exported to detailed reports. Predictive maintenance and asset management are simple with ProfiTrace.

Atlas & Mercury

Driven by the need for high performance, integration between factory installations and IT-systems, there has been a growing acceptance of Industrial Ethernet within industrial automation. With this, system complexity will continue to increase. Our Atlas products are a perfect solution for diagnostics in your network, preventing you from unexpected and expensive downtime.

  • Remote monitoring of your installation
  • Easy to use
  • Prevents expensive downtime


Most operations or processes gearing towards Industry 4.0 either now or in the future will operate in a mixed architecture. This means facilities have to deal with an architecture where older networks and Industrial Ethernet networks work side by side. With this situation in mind, we developed the next evolution in our diagnostic eco-system: the PROCENTEC Mercury.

  • Portable device
  • PROFIBUS ánd Industrial Ethernet diagnostics
  • Pre-installed software
