This paper presents BR-Tool, a multi-protocol bus monitoring and temporal validation software developed to provide temporal validation of fieldbus-based automation applications. BR-Tool monitors communication on industrial networks during real operation and compares acquired data with temporal requirements previously specified. Two industrial case studies are presented in this paper: the first one is a PROFIBUS-DP based manufacturing system, and the second one deals with a energy control system application based on CANOpen protocol.
