NETLion 1000

Automotive Ethernet Development Tool for 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1

Automotive Ethernet Media Converter NETLion 1000

The Swiss Army Knife of Automotive Ethernet Development

Whether for software and hardware development at the ECU, measuring data in the vehicle, analyzing data streams in the lab or flashing ECUs – our Automotive Ethernet TAP and media converter NETLion 1000 offers the optimal solution for each of your requirements.

Our NETLion 1000 connects the world of automotive Ethernet with that of standard Ethernet, making it an indispensable tool in development.

But the NETLion 1000 is also used in industrial and agricultural environments. For example, it is ideally suited as a development tool for High-Speed ISOBUS.

In media converter mode, it converts up to two 1000BASE-T1/100BASE-T1 signals to PC-standard 1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX and thus additionally supports several standards with only one device.

In the operating mode Network TAP, which acts on layer 1, data can be decoupled from both transmission directions and read out separately from each other.

In addition, the NETLion 1000 can be used as a cable tester – this gives you information about the condition, as well as the length of the unterminated cable. Furthermore, it reveals whether there is a cable break and at which point it is located.
