The NetMeter comes with some tap cables that are meant for plugging into Mini and Micro quick-disconnects.

I frequently installed short drop cables for analyzer access, and made up my own cable with an open-style Combicon female socket. This would allow me to plug in either the NetMeter or my 1784-PCD for protocol analysis.

The NetMeter frequently does its job by showing no errors ! If I'm investigating a DeviceNet and it goes through a device failure but there are no CAN errors on the bus, I know that the device itself should be investigated, rather than the network.
