Network Analyzer for Industrial Ethernet

The netANALYZER PCI-based network analyzer from Hilscher North America Inc. is designed for use with real-time Industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherNet/IP with CIPSYNC, EtherCAT, PROFINET RT/IRT and SERCOS III.

Network traffic can be time stamped within a 10ns resolution thus providing accurate information to determine jitter and delay times for individual nodes on a real-time Ethernet network. The netANALYZER is controlled by WireShark, a network analyzer with plug-ins for EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PowerLink, PROFINET (RT/IRT) and SERCOS III.

Most Industrial Ethernet control systems support both star and bus topology with performance requirements that far exceed typical office-based systems, thus requiring a new class of network analyzing tools capable of measuring propagation delays and jitter to and from a specific node. The netANALYZER provides four full duplex ports to allow the measurement of traffic into and out of a node. With these features, netANALYZER is capable of measuring the network performance of high-performance drives and motion control products based on the IEEE 1588 specification.
