The NaviTEK IE is a tester for commissioning, preventative maintenance and troubleshooting of PROFINET Industrial Ethernet networks as well as standard Ethernet IP networks.

Designed to simplify the process, the NaviTEK IE identifies network nodes and configuration without requiring a PC and speciality software. An easy to understand system health check pinpoints potential issues before they become network failures. Automatically discover cable, network or device configuration/faults with the touch of a button.

To prove the network has been commissioned successfully, NaviTEK IE provides professional PDF reports that can be shared with colleagues and clients using the free IDEAL AnyWare™  mobile app.

Pinpoint Cable Faults and Minimise Downtime

One of the main causes to network downtime is caused by cable faults. The NaviTEK IE has a series of advanced wiremap tools for PROFINET and standard Ethernet IP network cabling:

Copper Cabling

Using the RJ45 or M12 interfaces the NaviTEK IE offers a wiremap specifically designed for PROFINET Industrial Ethernet networks and Standard Ethernet networks.

• Displays the correct wiring colours for the protocol used
• Supported cable types – 4 twisted wires / 2 twisted pairs / 4 twisted pairs
• Measures the cable length
• Determine where and what the cable fault is including split pairs/opens/shorts/miswires.

Fibre Cabling

Using the optional SFP module the NaviTEK IE will test your fibre data cabling.

• Measures the optical RX power received to prove performance with supported SFPs
• Discover cable faults ie dirty connectors, breaks and bends that exceed specified loss limits

Why is NaviTEK IE better than other cable testers?

Accurate distance to fault using Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR)
Tests every wire in the data cable not every pair to help isolate issues that other testers cannot find
Supports standard and non-standard cabling as the wiremap can be customised to your specific cabling

Correct network issues using the discovery and configuration tools

The NaviTEK IE will discover the following list of faults:

• Incorrect device names
• Duplicate IP addresses
• Packet loss

If node configuration faults are found, easily correct them using the simple configure tool.

Discover mis-configured devices that cause a network conflict

The NETMAP comparison tool can also perform a scan of the entire network to identify all active devices and save this for comparison to future NETMAPS. This enables easy identification of new or removed network devices, incorrectly configured devices or configuration changes, such as those caused by automatic firmware updates.

Find intermittent issues with the event log

The NaviTEK IE will record key network errors for up to 48 hours including the following parameters. This will help determine if a problem is with the cabling, node, PLC or the
network configuration.

• Device status
• Input/output errors

Display and validate network node details quickly

The NaviTEK IE uses the following protocols to display the most important network node parameters.

• Discovery and Control Protocol (DCP)
• Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
• Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)

Perform a health check to identify issues before network failures occur

The health check feature provides a quick indication of how each of your devices are performing with an easy to understand traffic light system. By clicking on each device you will see why your device is categorised as amber or red and corrective action can be taken.

Locate hidden or poorly labelled devices

Quickly identify a specific device with the NaviTEK IE by flashing its LEDs.

Test Reporting

NaviTEK IE automatically generates test reports in PDF or CSV format.

The summary page of each report can be customised to include logo, company and operator details. Choose between 3 different reports than can show either passed, failed or all test reports in each report:

• Summary
• Brief
• Full

Q: What’s the difference between NaviTEK NT Pro and NaviTEK IE?

A: NaviTEK IE has all the NaviTEK NT Pro functions plus Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET) test functions with M12 D coded adapter cables.

Q: Does the NaviTEK IE support EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Modbus TCP protocol?

A: No, the NaviTEK IE only supports PROFINET at the moment.

Q: Can I upgrade NaviTEK NT Plus/Pro to NaviTEK IE?

A: No, it is not upgradable.

Q: Why does the device scan take so long?

A: Each device can take several seconds to respond to the NaviTEK IE request via the SNMP protocol. Hundreds of devices in the network can lead to a long test time.

Q: Does the NaviTEK IE perform a Cat 5e/6A wiremap?

A: Yes

Q: Can the NaviTEK IE test a 100M optical link?

A: Yes when you use a 100Mb/s SFP media converter accessory (R151060)
