MSB-RS485 Analyzer

RS422 / 485 in Detail

The MSB-RS485 Analyzer from IFTOOLS  is an essential tool for analysis and optimizing of RS422/485 connections. As an autonomous device it gathers exact information about every line change with micro second precision – indispensable for each analysis of time depending protocols like Modbus RTU, Profibus or similiar.

Equipped with a multitude of visualization tools it allows a detailed view in every RS422/485 communication and detects errors coming from bus enabling, timeouts or wrong/double addressing.

Why use an analyzer?

 What a pure software solution cannot provide:

  • OS independent time stamps for all events (resolution 1µs)
  • Simultaneous display of the Tri-State signals as well as the transferred data
  • Detection of inactive bus states and invalid line levels
  • Measure and Set ANY baudrate from 1 Baud to 1 MBaud
  • Automatic detection of baudrate, databits and parity
  • Support of protocols with 9 bit data length

Various bus connections

 makes it easy to analyze different bus systems like RS422 point-to-point including handshake, RS485 2-wire half-duplex and 4-wire full-duplex connections.

Segment analysis

  Transparent bus separation for purposeful examination of single participants and separate recording of master    and/or single slaves.



Measure and Set ANY baudrate from 1 Baud to 1 MBaud

Features and BenefitsFraming, Parity, Break Detection : Direct analysis of error conditions and the reactions of end devices thereon.

  • Pattern search with regular expressions : Makes the search for any data sequences possible with wild card characters and time distances or pauses between data strings.
  • Integrated LevelFinder : Finds any static level, level change or error condition. Combined with the search of defined data bytes it is a precious tool to analyzehardware protocols.
  • Integrated Lua script language : To define, visualize, compute (check sum test) and convert the recorded data.
  • MultiViewconcept : Simultaneous analysis of the recorded data at different positions with multiple tool windows. That’s a very powerful help to compare the transferred data with their logical signal level or to compare different sections of the data stream.
  • Copy And Paste : Simple copying of recorded protocol or data sequences into other applications for further evaluation or documentation purposes.
  • Data export as CSV: For further evaluation of the logged data in Microsoft Excel or other spread sheet programs. That makes the full toolset of these programs available for statistic examination, sorting and other computations.
  • Direct display of the data stream by green Leds : Additional indication of the data flow, quick check for a correct data connection.
  • Future-proof by modern FPGA technology : Integrated state of the art gate array technology allows permanent advancements and adaption to different applications. The updating is done simply at start of the software.
  • Internal memory of 512 kByte : USB transfer buffer of 512 kB for measurement data to avoid data losses while recording at high baudrates.
  • Multi-Platform Support : The MSB485 software is delivered as ’native binary’ for Microsoft Windows and Linux. No emulation, no additional libraries, no installation of .NETR or JavaR .
  • Multi-Language Support : German and English language support. The selection is done automatically according to the used operating system, but can be changed manually.
  • Multi-Process Architectur : The splitting of different functions into different programs or processes guarantees high data security while recording and provides a better adaption to the system resources and CPU load time.
  • Compact housing with USB connector : No additional power supply necessary. Mobile operation even with laptop.
