Posted by Industry News on

ScanTool 602201 ECUsim 2000 ECU CAN Simulator for OBD-II Development

The ECUsim 2000 by ScanTool is an OBD simulator for OBD-II software and hardware testing and development. The 2000 is available in 3 editions which offer varying levels of user control. The Professional & Ultimate editions feature over 40 software commands that provide complete administration of the simulator, and allow you to create custom ECUs, add/delete DTCs & freeze frames, create PIDs, and dynamically assign their values.

The ECUsim 2000 is a small, lightweight, entry level OBD simulator that is an indispensable tool for OBD hardware and software development and testing.It supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, fixed and user adjustable parameter IDs (PIDs), diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), freeze frames, VIN, and many other SAE J1979 services.

The unit has five knobs assigned to common PIDs, a "fault event" button, and indicator lights for power, connection, and MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light). Physical connection with the device under test is made through a standard SAE J1962 female connector.

The ECUsim 2000 features a USB connection which can be used with the ECUsim Commander software to create custom ECUs or modify existing ECUs.

The simulator can be purchased with any combination of "unlocked" OBD-II protocols, from as few as one to as many as five. Attempting to switch to a protocol that has not been unlocked will produce a "PROTOCOL LOCKED" message.

The 2000 is available in 3 editions (Standard, Professional, and Ultimate) which offer varying levels of user control. The Professional & Ultimate editions feature over 40 software commands that provide complete administration of the simulator using ECUsim Commander, and allow you to create custom ECUs, add/delete DTCs and freeze frames, create PIDs, and dynamically assign their values.

Features

  • Benchtop simulator for testing and development of OBD devices and software
  • 5 knobs assigned to common PIDs, a "fault event" button, and indicator lights for power, connection, and MIL (malfunction indicator light)
