PCI-based Ethernet analyzer
This network analyzer can analyze Ethernet network nodes in real time, including drives and motion control.
The netANALYZER is a PCI-based network analyzer designed for use with real-time industrial Ethernet protocols. Network traffic can be time-stamped within a 10-ns resolution, providing accurate information to determine jitter and delay times for individual nodes on a real-time Ethernet network. Most Industrial Ethernet Control Systems supports both star and bus topology with performance requirements that far exceed typical office based system thus requiring a new class of network analyzing tools capable of measuring propagation delays and jitter to and from a specific node.
The analyzer provides four full-duplex ports, which allow the measurement of traffic into and out of a node. These features allow the analyzer to measure the network performance of high performance drives and motion control products based on the IEEE 1588 specification.
