HMI Diagnostics program

The B&R ADI HMI Diagnostics program analyzes your device and generates a report file. This report file can then be used for error analysis.

B&R Automation Device Interface (ADI) SNMP Agent

The B&R ADI SNMP Agent is an optional Windows component that enables a B&R industrial PC to be monitored and configured via SNMP. For example, an operator at an SNMP management console (monitoring station) can monitor the temperature values of a B&R industrial PC or change the User Serial ID.

SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol and was developed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force 1) to enable monitoring of network devices (e.g. routers, servers, switches, printers, computers) from a central station. It also regulates communication between the monitored devices (agents) and the monitoring station (SNMP manager, management console). SNMP was designed to allow monitoring of any network-capable device. Network management tasks that can be performed by SNMP include:

  • Features:
  • Monitoring of network components
  • Remote control and configuration of network components
  • Error detection and notification
