Sercos updates free Monitor software

April 16, 2013 - sercos international offers a free update for the sercos Monitor on its website.

The tool allows a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the data traffic in sercos III networks, easing development, testing and troubleshooting. The monitor allows both retroactive evaluation of captured and stored network records in the pcap file format, and analysis of the network traffic in real time (live capture).

A user-friendly interface and overview functions for the typical features of a sercos III network, such as topology, communications phases and service channel transmission, enable a fast and targeted launch of the analysis process. A capture trigger and filters can be defined to capture only Ethernet frames that meet specific requirements.
