In-Vehicle IP65-rated Box Computer Supports CAN Bus, OBD-II, SAE J1939, And SAE J1708

Posted by Industry News on

Nexcom MVS 5600-IP In-Vehicle IP65-rated Box Computer

The MVS series of electronic control units (ECU) by Nexcom features CAN connectivity, and it provides up to four slots for mini-PCIe modules.

The modular vehicle computers are equipped with Intel’s 6th generation Core processors on the MVS 5600-IPK or with the Atom processor on the MVS 2620-IPK. The MVS series can aggregate real-time vehicle information from micro-controller units (MCUs) via CAN. The network interface provides load capacity, volume, and distance measurements from sensors. The ECUs can automate workflow processes, including handling work requests, logging operational data, and improving proof of collection (POC), and delivery (POD). Transport safety and security of assets can also be enhanced by the MVS series with the implementation of blind-spot monitoring and driver authentication.

For the above scenarios to unfold, a broad array of I/O interfaces is provided by the ECUs. To add extra functionality or custom features, the modular vehicle computer systems enable customization with four mini-PCIe slots. Offered modules include CAN-based OBDII and J1939 connectivity. For application-specific functions, custom-designed modules can be built upon request.

To deliver reliable system performance, the MVS series is engineered with robustness and protections suited to harsh operating environments on special trucks. The IP65-rated products can fit in a confined space, prevent water and dust ingress, and have a temperature range from -30°C to +70°C to withstand rain and the outdoor nature of the work. I/O contacts are reinforced with screw connections to assure continuous data exchange to and from the systems despite shock and vibration.

  • Electrical Isolation for CAN2.0B & GPI/O
  • Optional OBD function (SAE J1939/J1708)
  • Rich and various GbE, USB2.0, Serial I/O and Storages
  • Compliant to E-mark and ISO 7637-2
  • Compliant to MIL-STD-810G in Vibration/Shock

More Information

With all its features, the jCOM.J1939.BT gateway allows the simulation of an SAE J1939 ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using embedded solutions such as the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Teensy, and others.

SAE J1939 to Bluetooth Gateway

The jCOM.J1939.BT gateway is a high-performance, low-latency, wireless vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with a Bluetooth COM port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network. An SAE J1939 cable, suited for a 9-pin Deutsch connection, is included with the gateway.

The board supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.
