For all real-time ethernet protocols, including
Using TAP CURIOUS is incredibly easy. On the one hand, the device is integrated within the network by means of the RJ45 sockets between the two nodes to be analysed. On the other hand, TAP CURIOUS is connected to a PC or laptop via the GBit interface. Reading and evaluation of the tapped package data is then done via the freely-available Wireshark software. The supplied Wireshark plugin ensures a trouble-free connection between device and software.
In addition to the recording of faulty telegrams in the network by which TAP CURIOUS is installed between two devices (see Example A), TAP CURIOUS can also be used to specifically analyse data streams of a device to be found in the network (see Example B). In doing so, TAP CURIOUS records the frames directly before and directly after the device to be analysed. This enables the measurement of, amongst other things, the delay and jitter of the device and whether, for example, the device swallows or falsifies respectively telegrams.
