Advanced Serial Protocol Analyzer

Most data networks are complicated, not just the hardware and network issues, but also the high-level protocols that devices use to communicate; and to make things even more complicated, many manufacturers have incorporated proprietary protocols for their devices. Integrating different devices and protocols within a data network is always the most challenging task for system integrators, firmware/software developers, and site engineers. From the simplest loopback test to complicated checksum calculation and sophisticated firmware and GUI software development, the 232Analyzer is designed to tackle all these challenges. 

The 232Analyzer is an award-winning, easy-to-use, advanced RS232/RS485/RS422/ TTL/CMOS analyzer software that allows users to control, monitor, and analyze serial port activities in any data format (ASCII, hexadecimal, decimal, octal, or binary), and it comes with powerful features including Programmable Buttons, Automated Responses and Macros. The 232Analyzer supports all major Windows Operating Systems including Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP, both 32 and 64 bits. The FREE Limited Version has no time limitation, so feel free to use or distribute it.  

Benefits of Software Analyzers

  • Because of their nature, software analyzers are generally more user-friendly than hardware analyzers.
  • Software analyzers come with many more useful and powerful features than hardware analyzers do.
  • Software analyzers are more cost-effective and convenient. The company licenses can be installed on multiple computers and travel from one place to another, requiring no additional expensive devices.
  • Activation of software analyzers is fast and easy and does not require frustrating product waiting time.
  • The 232Analyzer is the best protocol analyzer of its type; it has been proven by tens of thousands of satisfied customers worldwide, including Boeing, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, NASA, Siemens, and many other market leaders.
