To implement the VARAN bus, inexpensive standard components can be used. The hardware costs are within the range a of conventional field bus connection.

Through automatic addressing of all bus participants via the VARAN Manager, configuration work during the planning and initial start-up phase is minimized. The simple network analysis with the VARAN Service Tool saves operating and maintenance costs.

With the VARAN Service Tool and VARAN Analyzer, the real-time Ethernet bus system can be efficiently monitored and analyzed.

Reading the device information, the graphic display of the network topology and software updates can be performed with only a few mouse clicks.

VNO members can download the service tool free of charge.
