Network management software support for PoE, TSN management
Belden has released the latest version of its Hirschmann network management software. Industrial HiVision 7.1 adds features for PoE detection and management, as well as added support for configuring emerging technologies like time sensitive networking (TSN). Industrial HiVision is in use worldwide in the power and utility, transportation, water/wastewater and factory automation industries. Strengthening the already robust monitoring and management capabilities of previous versions, the enhancements to HiVision 7.1 result in improved availability and security for industrial networks, says Belden.
In many industrial facilities, Ethernet networks are growing and changing quickly, and it is increasingly difficult to manage and secure them while fault-finding efficiently with precision. Mark Cooksley, product manager at Belden explains: “Industrial HiVision is an important tool for improving them. The latest version builds on an already rich set of security and efficiency functionalities to make it easier to control and act on factors that impact the network as a whole. These include a new Graphical History Display, which provides comprehensive graphical indicators of fault events, as well as easy configuration of TSN systems with MultiConfig.”
The enhanced capabilities of Industrial HiVision 7.1 allow industrial manufacturers to ptimise the use of available power with the PoE Wizard. The IIoT is driving smaller and smaller devices typically powered by PoE, as a result, fewer switches are required to meet needs, and less energy is wasted, says Belden.
Users can also configure hundreds of SNMP-enabled industrial devices simultaneously, from any manufacturer, both during commissioning and live operation.
A free trial version is available.
