EtherCAT Sniffer Library for LabVIEW

Products – EtherCAT Sniffer Library for LabVIEW    

EtherCAT is based on ethernet. So ethernet tools for packet analysis and capture can be used in EtherCAT automation systems. A network TAP (Test Access Point) is a hardware device that is inserted in the ethernet cable to copy the data streams and send it to another ethernet port for monitoring. This is done without interfering the data
traffic.

The EtherCAT Sniffer Library for LabVIEW reconstructs the EtherCAT process data coming from a captured network TAP monitor port. The EtherCAT process data is extracted and converted into the slave data objects using the ENI file of the EtherCAT system. The data can then be processed in LabVIEW.

The software can be used for:
  • Data logging
  • EtherCAT Scope
  • Investigation of sensors (noise, FFT, bouncing, etc.)
Hardware

The software can be used with any network TAP. Some devices are listed below.
