LE-PC800G (PC Link Software)

Outline

The PC Link is software that provides an efficient measurement environment utilizing the high-resolution screen and high-capacity HDD of a PC.
The analyzer can be remotely controlled by the PC so that measurement data will be displayed on the screen or continuously recorded on the HDD.
The PC Link incorporates versatile features (e.g., a search function that finds target data exactly, a TEXT-CSV conversion function that is useful for the generation of reports, and Japanese-English display).
Features
Controls multiple analyzers at the same time.
Easy-to-use key emulation
Remote monitor function which enables to continuously record communications log up to 256GB.
Displays on the PC screen in various ways.
Converts the stored data to a text or CSV format all together.
Changes the system language automatically (Japanese/English)

Enables simultaneous control of multiple analyzers from a PC

The LE-PC800G supports serial connections through the COM port, USB connections, and LAN connections with the SI-60 (sold separately) used, and allows remote simultaneous measurement with a number of analyzers connected together.
Furthermore, the LE-PC800G can display measured data saved on the memory cards or USB flash drive (LE-8200A only), and convert the data.

*1 The PC Link software is not provided with a USB cable. Prepare a USB cable if you intend to use USB connection.
The LE2-8V AUX cable provided to the analyzer is available in the case of serial connection.
*2 LE-8200A/LE-8200 can save data in the CF card.
An interface to read the CF card is required on the PC side.
*3 LE-8200A can save data in the USB flash drive.
*1: SI-60 is a LAN-serial converter supported by LE-PC300G. Target analyzer is identified by specifying IP address of SI-60 on the remote setting window of LE-PC800G.
*2: Optional AUX cable for DSUB 25-pin (LE2-8C). Set the DTE/DCE switch of SI-60 to DTE.

Key emulation

The key emulation function reproduces the display and operation of analyzers on your PC. It allows you to perform remote control as if you operated your analyzer from a PC.

Remote monitor

The remote monitor function captures the log data from operating analyzer and records it on its hard disk or SSD, and at the same time it displays the data on the PC's screen. Depending on the purpose of use and the capacity of the storage, you can specify the size of each log file by "Block size" and the maximum number of log files by "Maximum block count". When you want to stop the logging automatically at the specified capacity you can use fixed buffer mode, and when you want to log the data continuously keeping its latest log data you can use the ring buffer mode.

Synchronizes the configuration with the analyzer

The configuration and the analyzer setting set on the PC software can be synchronized with that of the analyzer in remotely connected.

Displays on the PC screen in various ways.

This function allows you to switch the display mode: raw data display, protocol translation display, and logic analyzer waveform display.

Raw data display
HDLC translation display mode
Logic anlayzer display mode
BERT mode

Converts the stored data to a text or CSV format all together

This function allows you to convert into a text or CSV format the data stored by the remote monitor function or stored in a memory card by an analyzer all together.

Features of PC link software 4

Converts data stored on a memory card to the text/CSV format.

Changes the system language automatically (Japanese/English)

The system language alternates automatically between English and Japanese according to that of OS. This facilitates introduction of the software to development bases outside Japan.

Specifications

Applicable analyzers LE-8200A/LE-8200*1
Analyzer connection system USB, serial, or LAN connections*2
NO. of analyzers to be connected Multiple analyzers can be connected and controlled simultaneously. (No. of connectable analyzers depends on the performance of PC.)
Key emulation function Presents the analyzer's display on the PC screen to enable remote control in a manner as if operating the analyzer. The analyzer screen can be saved in a bitmap file.
Remote monitor Starts/stops measurement with analyzer and records data continuously on the HDD up to a specified capacity*3.
Recording capacity: Max. 256 GB Can be specified up to 2,048 files in the unit of 1/2/4/8/16/32/64/128 MB data file*4.
Measurement condition setting Measurement conditions and test data of the analyzer can be saved, edited, and input to or output from the HDD.
Measurement data A communication log file in LE-8200A/LE-8200 data format input through the remote monitor and external memory.
Data display Displays communications data accompanied by time data and line status. Character code (10 kinds) and character size (small/medium/large) can be changed. Translates and displays SDLC, X.25, and LAPD protocols.
Waveform display Enlarges and reduces waveform display, measures time between cursors, and rearranges signals.
Search function Finds and displays the data that matches the search key and can perform counting.
Search key: Specified data string of max. 8 characters (don't-care and bit mask settings can also be specified), idle time beyond a specified duration, specific time stamp (don't-care settings can also be specified), error (parity, framing, BCC, break/abort, short frame: individual error type can be specified), trigger matching data
Text-CSV conversion function Specified number of recorded files can be converted to text or CSV format all together.
System requirements OS: Windows®XP/Vista/7/8*5
CPU: Pentium®1 GHz or faster RAM: 512 MB or more (recommended)
HDD: 10 MB + free bytes on the communications log recording area
Connections port: serial, USB 2.0, or LAN port
Composition CD (Software), instruction manual, user registration card
*1: LE-PC800G does not support OP-SB84, OP-SB87, OP-SB88, OP-SB89, and OP-SB89G
*2: The SI-60 LAN/RS-232C converter and LE2-8C connection cable are required.
*3: Max speed which analyzer can measure is depending on the connection to the PC. Refere to the following standard speed.
USB connection Max. 2Mbps
Serial port direct
(115.2Kbps connection)
Max. 24Kbps This is the max speed of actual communications.
For example, the speed of your target device is 1Mbps, and it communicates 2Kbyte/s.
The actual communication speed of this target device is 20Kbps.
Via SI-60
