Industrial HiVision 4.2 Network Management Software from Hirschmann. Designed for effective industrial network supervision, Industrial HiVision v. 4.2 makes it easy for network administrators to monitor and report on all manageable devices from any manufacturer from a single screen. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.Designed for effective industrial network supervision, Industrial HiVision v. 4.2 from Belden makes it easy for network administrators to monitor and report on all manageable devices from any manufacturer from a single screen. V. 4.2 builds on earlier generations to provide a web-accessible package that allows network administrators to manage complex networks with an intuitive graphical interface and clear visualization of the network topology. It is easy to know how and where components connect, no matter the manufacturer. Enhanced Auto-topology Discovery uses standardized Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) to quickly build a representation of the network and its connectivity, including devices such as PLCs, I/O, and HMIs. It also detects devices including unmanaged switches and hubs, and devices located behind a router. Topology maps are 100% accurate and network documentation is always up to date.

Industrial HiVision’s MultiConfig reduces network installation time and ensures consistency when configuring network infrastructure. MultiConfig simultaneously configures the same parameters across multiple devices—even different types of devices that have parameters in common. It also highlights inconsistencies between parameter configurations, for rapid faultfinding. MultiConfig expedites network hand-over collateral because it can save and transfer configuration files. During live operation, MultiConfig ensures the highest network availability, with the least effort required for network administration and maintenance, while minimizing operational risk. It automates repetitive but essential maintenance tasks—including changing device passwords regularly and firmware updates. An ActiveX control and SNMP/OPC gateway facilitate network management integration into SCADA systems.

Industrial HiVision 4.2 also offers a Path Availability Calculator to calculate the availability of communication between two devices, when there are multiple physical paths and to show the effect of adding additional physical paths. Reporting tools provide information in various graphical formats or in Microsoft Excel. Users may measure and report on parameters of their choice with multiple parameters per graph.
