This mode provides a quick overview of the existing AS-Interface system. The error rates are presented per slave in a traffic-light function (green, yellow, red).
The bus configuration and the currently transmitted data of the slaves are shown in a well arranged presentation.
With the Expanded Statistics function it is possible to determine the error rates as the number of transmitted or faulty bus message frames.
The Bundle Error overview shows in steps how many multiple repetitions of message frames occurred in order to enable a selective and look-ahead assessment of the transmission quality.
In this mode the analyzer now shows not only the digital input/output values but also the current analog values and the input status of the safety slaves.
The presentation of message frames in the style of a classic field bus analyzer is indispensable for complex troubleshooting. Extensive trigger functions and recording and viewing filters are available for this purpose.
An external trigger input and trigger output round off the scope of functions in order to find even the most difficult errors.
For troubleshooting in connection with safety monitor applications, changes of status in the code tables of safety slaves are identified and assessed.
The recorded data of the online statistics are easy to output and document using a test log. Verification of the state of the plant can thus be provided for approvals or service assignments.
The new measurement assistant records the bus signals for an adjustable period, automating the creation of the test log. A standardized quality test of AS-Interface plants is thus possible.
