The Diagnosis tool is an IO-Link analyzer that examines the IO-Link signal both electrically and logically. The acquired data is transmitted via USB to a supplied Diagnosis Tool PC software and evaluated. The PC software runs on Windows 7 and 10.
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 wave forms 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 checking of Devices without an external Master. The tracked communication is shown directly on a PC or stored on an embedded SD card.
