Provided along with a PRIME capable front-end, the Peryton-PLC for PRIME allows users to capture, and analyze packets while exploiting the tools, features and options included in the traditional Perytons™ Protocol Analyzer wireless product line.
“We continuously see convergence of several physical environments. like 802.15.4, ZigBee, 6LoWPAN, etc. with Power Line Communications, especially for specific applications such as Automated/Smart Meter Reading as well as Home and Building Automation. For such cases we experience increasing market need for professional analysis tools that assist the engineers by complementing the overall network picture” – said Rubi Elbirt VP Business Development and Sales of Perytons. “The Peryton-PLC for PRIME product uses a PLC front-end to non-intrusively gather the PRIME packets from the power line environment and presents them to the user while providing tools for detailed analysis like Time, Message and Message-Tree Views as well as Network and Statistics Charts. Along with the additional sophisticated features included in the Perytons™ Analyzer Protocol engine as standard, the Peryton-PLC for PRIME is essential for deploying and optimizing PLC based networks and helps tremendously to achieve robust product development ” – added Rubi.
The current is a BETA release of the Peryton-PLC for PRIME. Additional features like PRIME traffic generator, support of deciphering encrypted messages are being developed and are expected to be released in the coming version.
Peryton-Scripting (for writing user defined Scripts) as well as the SDK Add-Ons are compatible to run on top of the Peryton-PLC for PRIME analyzer.
