The new DeviceNet Analyzer checks, commissions, monitors, and maintains DeviceNet/CANbus installations. The device lets users analyze signal squarewave quality; monitor overall network health by node; detect locations of cable breaks and short circuits; and locate weak points such as incorrect cable types, lengths, and faulty plug connections. The Analyzer helps with day-today maintenance of DeviceNet installations by identifying trouble nodes on the network, and over time, can see trends in network health. The device also checks the cable quality (or field-wireable connections) and, during downtime troubleshooting, can help root out the zone where the trouble is occurring.
