Belden Inc. has released the latest version of its Hirschmann network management software. Industrial HiVision 7.1 improves functionality with the addition of new features for PoE detection and management, as well as added support for configuring emerging technologies like TSN. Strengthening the already robust monitoring and management capabilities of previous versions, the result is improved availability and security for industrial networks.
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.
“Network security and efficiency are both top of mind at industrial facilities worldwide,” said Mark Cooksley, product manager at Belden. “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 time-sensitive networking (TSN) systems with MultiConfig.”
The enhanced capabilities of Industrial HiVision 7.1 allow industrial manufacturers to:
- Optimize the use of available power with the Power over Ethernet (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, leading to a lower total cost of ownership.
- Configure hundreds of SNMP-enabled industrial devices simultaneously, from any manufacturer, both during commissioning and live operation.
- Users can get this version at the download section of the Belden’s tickets handling system named Parature nnd soon at www.hivision.de.
Industrial HiVision is in use worldwide in the power and utility, transportation, water/wastewater and factory automation industries.
