ET2000 | Industrial Ethernet multi-channel probe

The ET2000 multi-channel probe from Beckhoff is a versatile piece of hardware for analysing any Industrial Ethernet solution. With eight ports this device enables unlimited synchronised recording of up to four independent channels at a speed of 100 Mbit/s. All real-time Ethernet standards such as EtherCAT, PROFINET, etc. and conventional office Ethernet networks are supported.

Through its compact and rugged design the ET2000 is ideal both for the local application at machines or in the laboratory. The four channels enable recording and analysis of separate networks or different points within the same network. All frames in transit – in both directions – are furnished with a high-precision time stamp in the probe hardware and copied to the Gbit uplink port. The high time stamp resolution of 1 ns enables very precise timing analysis of the connected network segments. The ET2000 probe is transparent for the connected buses. Thanks to the low cycle delay of 1 µs the influence on the system is very small.

The device can be connected to any Gbit Ethernet interfaces on the PC side. A plug-in for the free Wireshark network monitor enables this network monitor to be used for analysing recordings and high-precision time stamps.
