Ethernet BITBUS-TRACER

ETH-BITBUS-TRACER

The BITBUS-TRACER helps troubleshooting a BITBUS network. It is linked to the BITBUS network and listens to all messages that are exchanged on the network.

Escpecially when old manufacturing equipment has to be taken to current technology levels, often the data assignments in the BITBUS protocol are not available. This is where the BITBUS tracer can help to analyze the data exchanged between master and slave stations

The recorded data is easily viewed in Wireshark on any PC running windows. That is why the operation/recording time is only limited by the available hard disc space

  • Works on all standard BITBUS RS485 lines.
  • 10/100Mbit/s Ethernet connection to a PC
  • Records are taken via Wireshark and can be localy stored for later analysis.
  • Recording and evaluation with a capture interface and plugins for Wireshark 2.2 (Windows).
  • The plugin is able to fragment the messages into their separated fields and shows them comfortably in Wireshark
  • Wireshark's filter functions can be used to ease the analysis.
  • ETH-BITTRACE supports diverse SDLC based protocols.
  • 12-24V wall power supply
  • Aluminium case: 120x140x45 mm

wireshark

The Tracer makes it possible to record the message traffic of a Bitbus network. All single messages will be consecutively numbered and a us-timestamp will be added. This happens internally in the device.

A PC running Wireshark can be used to listen, record and save messages for later analysis. The amount of recorded data is only limited by the available hard disk storage.
