Product Description

The ILaS Sniffer of Technica Engineering is a logging device used to capture and timestamp ILaS (ISELED Light and Sensor network) communication.

To be able to log the data with a minimal impact on the tested system, the ILaS Sniffer is connected to the communication line that is observed. This way, all data sent over the line are timestamped. Our ILaS Sniffer can be used to log up to 4x networks of ILaS traffic. Further, it includes the possibility to capture 1x 10BASE-T1S line and 1x analogue communication line.

The ILaS Sniffer supports 10BASE-T1S event logging capabilities which allows the device to react to situations such as 1) a beacon being received, 2) end-of-stream delimiter error, 3) PLCA symbols detected/missing or 4) PLCA empty cycle. With these features the product provides deep insights into the network and a reliable solution for network diagnosis.

On the back side of the device you can find three 1000BASE-T RJ-45 connectors. These connections are used for 1) the device configuration, 2) data uplink to a test PC or logger and 3) time synchronization with other logging devices.  

Among other characteristics, it also includes individual LED status and error per link, making it easy to monitor network status. The wide input voltage range of 6.5-to-32-volt DC ensures that the device can be used in Automotive environments (12 /24 Volt nominal). It also allows easy-to-use configuration through an HTML webserver interface.  

Our ILaS Sniffer supports 802.1AS to enable time synchronization in applications with multiple communication technologies (ILaS, CAN, Automotive Ethernet, …) logged by our Capture Modules. Further, the PLP, and TECMP protocols are supported to provide synchronized logfiles including important meta data. ASAM CMP support is in development.
