Quick and safe configuration – with Config+

Config+ from Phoenix Contact is the ideal software solution for configuring INTERBUS networks. The clear user interface allows you to assign addresses using drag & drop and to configure even complex topologies. For reliable troubleshooting, the Diag+ diagnostics tool is integrated in Config+.       

Numerous functions for efficient configuration

Config+ software  

Config+ software

In Config+, you can use a wide range of functions to efficiently configure systems with INTERBUS networks.

  • Reading in and comparing the real and configured topology
  • Address assignment via drag & drop or completely automatic
  • Parameterization of several master boards and controller boards in one project
  • IP address assignment via BootP server
  • Non-proprietary device parameterization using the FDT/DTM concept
  • Parameterization of several devices with the assistant (MDC wizard)
  • Monitoring function for wiring checks

Comprehensive diagnostics for INTERBUS networks

Reliable diagnostics are essential for system availability. INTERBUS networks can be diagnosed reliably with the Diag+ diagnostics tool integrated in Config+.

  • Graphical error display in the network topology
  • Plain text messages with tips for error removal
  • Online display of device states
  • Statistics functions for transmission quality
  • Saving comments about error messages

Integrated diagnostics for Ethernet devices

In addition to INTERBUS, do you also use Ethernet devices (switches, modules with Ethernet interfaces) in your systems? Diag+ also offers the corresponding diagnostic functions for this:

  • Receive automatically generated messages (traps) with the trap receiver function
  • Graphical display of the Ethernet topology showing the availability of devices
  • Display of redundancy paths, port statistics, virtual LANs or other properties that can be read via SNMP
  • Calling of device web pages, if available
