Serial Port Monitor
RS485 analyzer software

RS485 Sniffer is a system utility to collect data that goes through COM ports of your PC. Essentially, this software performs the following functions – monitors and records data exchanged with a serial port so you can use it for further analysis and, if required, trouble-shooting. This is of critical importance for development and testing of applications, drivers and serial devices.

This RS485 monitor software has a number of additional features, including advanced filtering and search, terminal mode and options to export data in various formats. Clean interface and intuitive navigation make RS485 Sniffer extremely easy-to-use.

RS485 Sniffer enables you to:

  • Monitor data

    You can connect to a serial port anytime – even if there is a device connected to it -and start collecting and displaying IOCTLs (input/ output control codes) instantaneously. Capability of this RS485 data logger to capture full information in the real time mode makes it possible to identify and correct problems on time.
  • Monitor several ports within one session

    This RS485 analyzer makes it possible to watch multiple ports at a time, i.e. you can intercept data on interaction of application with multiple ports and devices. All of this is done within one session, the output – a single log where data is arranged on a first-in-first-out basis – is easy to analyze.
  • Record data

    Information can be redirected and recorded in a specified folder. You can also copy it to a clipboard to paste it wherever you need to. RS485 protocol analyzer enables saving monitoring sessions so you can get back to them when required.
  • View data

    There are 4 modes – table, line, dump and terminal – you can choose from when browsing data. Each suits a particular purpose. RS485 Sniffer offers convenient filtering options so you can view only relevant parameters without being distracted by excess information.
  • Simulate sending data

    To check a reaction of a monitored device to a particular command or data, it might be required to simulate sending data to a serial port. RS485 Sniffer allows you to do that, formats supported include string, binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal, mixed.
