Advanced RS232 Protocol Analyzer

Equipped with a multitude of visualization tools the analyzer allows a detailed view of every transmission layer in a RS232 communication. It detects errors coming from incorrect data formats, invalid timings, erroneous byte or telegram spacings or wrong telegram contents and/or checksums.

With its ability for interactive real-time analysis it is the recommended tool in developing protocols, troubleshooting, protocol adaption and education/training (protocol functioning).

  • 10 Nanoseconds precise and PC independent time resolution for time critical protocols.
  • 200 MHz sample rate ensures most accurate display of the signal and timing even with highest baudrates.
  • Highly versatile in use by ready-made protocol templates for 3964(R), Modbus, Profibus, DNP3, IEC60870 and many more…
  • Analysis of individual and proprietary protocols by own protocol templates.
  • OSI layer-based visualization of the signal levels (tri-state), raw data and telegrams
  • A special decoding unit for any baud rates from 1…1MBaud and 5-9 bit data words (RS232 level or logic signals).
  • Integrated HW support for synchronous RS232 transmissions.
  • Data injection, error simulation (frame, parity, breaks), signal inverting and interactive signal switching of all lines (optional).
  • Scriptable by interlinking command line tools (e.g. long time records and special event triggering).

PrincipleThe analyzer marks every event (data byte, signal alternation) with a time stamp in 1µs resolution (independent of the PC) and send the information via USB to the connected PC
FeaturingReal time analysing and simultaneous access/display of different record parts even during an active recording
Capacity4GByte max. record file size on PC for real time analysing. Unlimited (or free hard disk space) records when using the special command line API for long time recordings
Record timeThe record time depends on the selected kind of events and data rate of the connection
