DF1 Analyzer

DF1 Analyzer

Requires: com.ioninja.layer
Status: ENABLED (all requirements are satisifed)

The DF1 Analyzer layer plugin can be attached to any Serial-based stream session for analysis of the DF1 protocol for PLCs produced by Allen-Bradley.

Normally, you want to start a relevant serial monitoring session session, such as:

...and then attach DF1 Analyzer on top of that.

Whenever DF1 messages are detected and parsed, human-readable desciptions will be printed in the log — side-by-side with the original data bytes. Nothing is lost — DF1 decoded messages complement the original raw data, not replace it.

Moreover, it's always possible to remove the DF1 Analyzer layer and get back to the raw, unprocessed data streams.
