New Multi-Protocol Analyzer LE-2500/LE-3500

LINEEYE Co., Ltd releases a new multi-protocol analyzer LE-2500/LE-3500 that is light weight, A5 size and battery powered.

1. Background

Nowadays, not only communication products, but also other electronic devices are needed to have some kinds of data communications. Thus, many kind of protocols are developed to suit to each product and system. Portable multi-protocol analyzer, LE-2500/3500 is very useful because it is portable and you can bring it to anywhere you need to solve the communication troubles.

2. Outline

LE-2500/3500 has almost same functions compared to LE-2200/3200, but it is smaller and lighter. The corners of this product are covered by rubber to protect the product from the accidental damage. Also light weight, A5 compact size and running 8 hours by battery power allow you to bring the product to the place you have encountered the problems. The communication speed, memory capacity and so on are improved compared to the former models. It supports RS-232C, RS-422/485(RS-530) Monitor/Simulation/BERT functions for arbitrary speed. It also has long hours recording to CF card, logic analyzer function, expansion boards for supporting other protocols, and the PC link software. It improves some other functions, such as voltage measurement for RS-232C and the external trigger output for each trigger condition. It is useful not only for developing some communication systems but also for maintaining the systems outside of your office.

3. Appearance

4. Feature

  1. A5 size, less than 800g, 8hours running by battery power.
  2. Has Monitor/Simulation/BERT function for multi-protocol.
  3. Supports TTL, I2C, IrDA, ASK, CAN and LIN by exchanging the measurement boards (option).
  4. Continuously Records in the CF card (option).
  5. Has the simple Logic Analyzer function (resolution: max. 50ns) and the RS-232C signal voltage measurement function.
  6. Able to use the measured data on PC by using the PC link software (option: LE-PC300G).
  7. RoHS certified.
