Frontline's NetDecoder™ protocol analyzer is designed to diagnose and troubleshoot communication
problems in industrial networks. The NetDecoder analyzer is a combination of software and hardware. The hardware is used as a license key to activate the software.
Frontline's NetDecoder analyzer has
the ability to monitor and provide detailed timing, data and
messaging information for serial, fieldbus, and ethernet networks.
The NetDecoder protocol analyzer is used in many industries
including Oil & Gas, Food and beverage, Electric power transmission,
Water or sewer management, and Factory automation.
Please note - NetDecoder encompasses Serialtest Asysc (a legacy and no longer available software package), providing additional features and
functionality not supported in Serialtest.
The NetDecoder analyzer supports these technologies:
- Modbus RTU

to learn how the NetDecoder analyzer helps customers.
The NetDecoder analyzer is more than an efficient and effective
troubleshooting tool. It has transitioned into an effective
monitoring tool giving you the ability to see issues developing
before they result in major problems.
Some of the main features of
the NetDecoder analyzer include:
The NetDecoder analyzer also provides the ability to analyze both serial and
Ethernet traffic at the same time. This feature is very handy to
troubleshoot issues where serial to Ethernet converters are used.
The NetDecoder analyzer provides a view to traffic on both sides of the converter
with the NetDecoder analyzer's ability to run both its serial and Ethernet
analyzers at the same time.
The NetDecoder analyzer is an indispensable test,
measurement and monitoring tool for:
- Industrial control and SCADA design engineers.
- OEM development and test engineers.
- System integrators.
- Field service and maintenance engineers.
- Network engineers.
