Multi-protocol analyzer "LE-3500XR/LE-2500XR" equipped with color display has been released.

LINEEYE Co., Ltd. has released the handy type battery-powered multi-protocol analyzer "LE-3500XR/LE-2500XR" which can analyze communication efficiently by touch panel operation.

Background and outline

The battery-powered, easy-to-carry protocol analyzer has been used by many engineers as a tool for checking communication data on site and logging without a PC. We have developed many models which support RS-232C, RS-485 (widely used in the industrial fields), TTL (used for microcomputers) as a main lineup of our communication analyzers.
This time, Line Eye Co., Ltd. has renewed the middle range model of the multi-protocol analyzer and will release a new product "LE-3500XR / LE-2500XR" which support both LCD touch operation and keyboard operation. The 4.3-inch color LCD with a capacitive touch panel enables intuitive touch and swipe operations like a smartphone, and can scroll vertically and horizontally in the data view. You can input the transmisison data for simulation efficiently by touching the full keyboard on the screen. In addition, by adopting a lithium-ion battery pack, we have achieved a significant reduction in size and weight while maintaining the same battery life as the conventional model.
The color display improves the visibility during communication analysis in online monitors, simulations, BERT, etc. The capture memory has been greatly enhanced compared to the conventional model, and the long-term continuous recording function (by which the analyzer saves the data into a SD card / USB flash) has been enhanced too. In addition, CAN FD and CXPI can be measured by using the newly released expansion board option (for in-vehicle communication) OP-SB7XC / OP-SB7XL. It is a communication analyzer that can be widely used for the development and maintenance of IoT devices, FA, and automobile-related devices, along with the serial and TTL communication analysis.

Feature

  • Hybrid operation of capacitive touch panel and physical keyboard
  • RS-232C, RS-422/485, TTL (1.8V-5V signal) communication measurement port are equipped as the standard.
  • Multi protocol support for ASYNC (UART), HDLC, I2C, and SPI. Besides them LE-3500XR supports Modbus too.
  • By optional measurement board they support In-vehicle communication such as CAN FD and LIN, and legacy communications such as X.20 / 21, RS-449, V.35 etc.
  • The auto save function automatically save communication log continuously to SDHC card or USB memory.
  • They have the logic analyzer function with resolution of 50nS and the amplitude level measurement function RS-232C/TTL signal.
  • The PC link software offers browsing the data and data cenversion into text format by connectintg them with the PC by Wi-Fi/USB.
  • They run by USB bus power. Without the USB bus power it can run for 7 hours continuously by the equipped lithium-ion buttery.
