Ethernet-Analyzer Real-Time-Ethernet - netANALYZER

The netANALYZER is a tool for the low-level analysis of Real-Time Ethernet networks.

The scope of delivery includes a capture-hardware recording the Ethernet traffic on the network and a graphical user software for Windows with extensive analysis functions. The open driver API allows you to use the capture-hardware in your own custom applications.

Integrated Ethernet Test-Access-Points (TAPs), ensure that the network is not influenced by the netANALYZER during the measurement process. No additional frame delay is introduced and the jitter is not affected. The TAPs guarantee unaltered data contents, even in error cases. All telegram data and telegram errors occurring on the network are transmitted to the field device without any change.

The measuring accuracy of 10 ns meets the high requirements of time-synchronized protocols such as IEEE1588, PROFINET IRT, EtherNet/IP with CIP Sync, EtherCAT or Sercos. Moreover, up to four digital signals can be recorded in parallel with the same time resolution. The supplied software allows an easy control of the recording process. The most important analysis functions such as timing and network load analysis have already been integrated into the software.

For a more detailed analysis of the recorded data, the software offers the possibility of storing files in the Wireshark .pcap format.
