The IO-Link Diagnosis Tool analyzes the IO-Link signal both electrically and logically. It is an essential tool for engineers and users of IO-Link technology to identify any kind of issues in the IO-Link connection.
The Diagnosis Tool is based on a high-speed multi-channel A/D converter that measures voltages and currents on both the C/Q and the L+ line. The measured data are transferred via USB to a software running on a Windows PC.
The IO-Link communication can be analyzed seamlessly on byte-level, on M-sequence level, on protocol level and even on application level. In the latter case, the IO-Link communication is visible in clear text. Folding, filtering and search functions simplify issue identification.
It is also possible to visualize sections as waveforms, and even eye-diagrams for Master and Device signals can be extracted.
Typically, the Diagnosis Tool is inserted between Master and Device. However, an integrated Master allows checking of Devices without an external Master. The tracked communication is shown and recorded directly on a PC.
