The IO-Link Diagnosis Tool analyzes the IO-Link signal both electrically and logically. It is an essential tool for engineers and users of the IO-Link technology to identify any kind of issues of 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
The IO-Link communication can be analyzed on byte-level, on M-sequence level, on protocol level and even on application level. The IO-Link communication is in the latter case visible in clear text. Folding, filtering and search functions simplify issue identification.
It is also possible to visualize waveforms and even eye-diagrams for Master and Device signals can be extracted.
Typically the Diagnosis Tool is inserted between Master and Device, however, a integrated Master allows to check Devices without external Master. The tracked communication is directly shown on a PC or stored on an embedded SD-card
